Award-winning Ghanaian artiste, Kidi, known in real life as Dennis Nana Dwamena, has shared his opinion on the issue of homosexuality in Ghana which has sparked a lot of debate in recent times bordering on its legalization.
Speaking in an interview with Prince Benjamin, host of Class Drive on Accra-based Class 91.3 FM, the 2018 VGMA Award winner said that he did not want to step on toes by taking sides in the issue of legalizing homosexuality.

According to the ‘Adiepena’ singer, the issue of homosexuality boiled down to people’s choices and very little could be done to change the mentality of a person whose mind has already been made up on a particular issue.
He opined that, “I usually have thoughts and options on issues but homosexuality is such a sensitive topic that I have decided for myself that I am never going to have a say in that. People should do whatever they want to do with their lives. I don’t want to be part of it.”
The ‘Odo’ singer added that the world had evolved so much so that the notion or stance people had about a situation or issue had changed with the passage of time.
To this end, he recounted that, “If you asked this question about 5 to ten years ago, the answer would have been ‘No’ but now, unfortunately, as much as we don’t want, the world is evolving, things are changing and everybody is thinking wide and outside the box. As an artiste, I have a lot of things to do and I wouldn’t like to step on toes.”
The issue of homosexuality and its legalization or otherwise has gained a lot of traction in the Akufo-Addo-led administration.
Theresa May, Prime Minister of UK stated that the United Kingdom was ready to help former colonies on the African continent including Ghana to abolish anti-gay laws.
Her comments sparked massive outcry from the general public who have vowed to vehemently reject any move by the government to legalize the act.
