Now with Euro News, he granted an interview on PM Express on Joy News and admitted he is not just an LGBTQ activist but a gay himself.

This is going to be the very first time, using your medium, to say that not only am I an activist for the rights of African Sexual Minorities [LGBTQ+] but I am gay; it is the truth that I have accepted, it is the truth that I will live by,”…

He said he’s also lied to people when they confront him about his sexuality but he can’t deny is no more.

“In the past, I had denied the fact that I was gay. I did that because of the fear of losing my career.

“At the time, I practiced Broadcast Journalism in Ghana for many years, and being on TV and being ousted brought a lot of pain to my life.”

The former Metro Tv journalist revealed that after bagging his Masters degree in UK and returned to Ghana for employment, none of the media houses were willing to employ him all because of the stigma attached to gays.
