Jason Gaisie, popularly known as Pappy Kojo, a Ghanaian hip hop and hiplife recording artist, has claimed on the Showbiz 360 programme on TV3, that he is a homosexual.
Asked by host of the programe Giovani Caleb on Friday February 19 whether or not he was joking with the comment, he insisted with all seriousness that he is gay.
Pappy Kojo further told Giovani that he prefers men like actor John Dumelo
“I am a homosexual man,” he said when told about rumours indicating that he is currently dating a popular female musician. He said in reaction to a question by Giovani about his alleged relationship with Yvonne Nelson.
“Is that a joke?” Giovani asked him but he answered “No, it is not. I am gay bro. I am into men”
“What is your kind of man? He was asked again.
In answer, he said “Men like John Dumelo.”
When his attention was drawn to the fact that laws of the land do no permit such act, he retorted ”You can’t change it.”
Meanwhile Giovani believed he was joking with these comments which come at a time issues about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer Individuals (LGBTQI) have dominated discussions on the airwaves after Minister-designate for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Sarah Adwoa Sarfo has expressed disapproval over the legalisation of homosexuality in the country.
The Dome Kwabenya lawmaker during her vetting by the Appointments Committee of Parliament said “The issue of LGBTQI is an issue that when mentioned creates some controversy but “what I want to say is that our laws are clear on such practices. It makes it criminal.
