-Rex Omar say homosexuality comes about as result of hormonal imbalances.
-He also says Ghana will eventually legalize it
Veteran Ghanaian highlife singer, Rex Omar, has said Ghana will be left with no choice than to legalize homosexuality in the country in some years to come.
According to him, there are people who were born with hormonal imbalances resulting in their homosexual orientation, therefore, they cannot be blamed for their condition.
Mr. Omar further noted that the rights of homosexuals cannot be violated because they are also humans who need to be respected.
“My take on homosexuality is this: People are homosexual by choice, they have decided to be homosexuals and that is their cup of tea. There are others who are also homosexual by nature, it is in their genes,” Rex Omar said on Entertainment Capital on Accra100.5FM hosted by Bismarck Boachie.
“I am not one of the people who speak against them because even if in the whole wide-world there are two people who are homosexual, they are also human beings and they have rights. So, I am not that person who talks down on them.”
Last week, there were claims by one Ghanaian musician that some gays in Ghana offered him a huge some of money to make a song for them but he refused. But Mr Omar says He doesn’t know why they would need a song.
“Why will they approach me for a song? For what? To promote homosexuality? I haven’t thought of that.
“In Africa, we have cultural sensibilities and not all of us are very broad-minded to understand this issue. The broad-minded people know that the reasons some countries have legalised homosexuality is because there are people, who, by nature, are ‘Kojo Besia’, a description for someone who is a man but has female beahviour. If you deliver a baby of that nature, will you throw it into the dustbin?
“This is a very controversial issue but I believe that as time goes on we will get to a point where we will understand some of these things,” Omar continued.
When asked whether he thinks in the near-future, despite Ghanaians’ aversion to homosexuality, in years to come, Ghana will legalise homosexuality, he responded in the affirmative.
“We will have no choice. Unlike prostitution, there is no one born to be a prostitute, it is a job of choice but these hormonal imbalances like hermaphrodite, you can’t throw them away, so, why do we have to infringe on their rights?”
The issue of homosexuality has become a topic of discussion in Ghana this year as a result of the Prime Minister of UK asking Ghana’s president to consider legalizing it.
