I Support My Son Being Gay – KKDKKD

Broadcaster Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) says he supports his son, Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah for disclosing his gay sexual preference.

Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah, who is a model, opened up about being gay in a digital magazine, intomore.com.

He said he had a difficult time coming out about his sexuality and that, he used to hide it and remembered instances when he used to be very quiet, obedient and often stayed in his room so that he will not be noticed while living with his parents.

Reacting to the story, KKD declared support for his son and said “Come joy or pain, sunshine or rain, success or failure, I will always love my son Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah and my daughter Ohemaa Asokwa Kyei-Darkwah. My love, care and devotion to my children are non-negotiable.”

In a lengthy post on Facebook, the broadcaster noted that, “Whilst the culture in which I was raised influenced me to lean towards raising my children as Asante, Christian, well-mannered, audacious,industrious, cosmopolitan and heterosexual, I do not consider it my place to pontificate, praise or condemn the sexuality any adult identifies with.Darkwah-Kyei-Darkwah-819x1024

A beautiful Friday to you, family, friends, followers, frenemies and foes.

I have been notified of the eagerly re-published article on my dearly beloved son Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah’s speaking up on his acceptance of his sexuality.

His words were candid and courageous.
“The first step to being happy is to be honest and embrace who you are in its totality.” -Anon.

His statement of his conviction and comfort with himself as a young man is a matter of an individual’s sexuality.

Come joy or pain, sunshine or rain, success or failure, I will always love my son Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah and my daughter Ohemaa Asokwa Kyei-Darkwah.

My love, care and devotion to my children are non-negotiable.

There are ex-wives and ex-husbands but there are no ex-children nor ex-parents.

No truth nor lies, no malicious gossip nor ill-willed broadcast can ever change my love and devotion for my children no matter who they think they are.

Through divorce and a year after, I stayed strong through the storm as a single father to raise my son and daughter aged 7+ and 5+, working, teaching, cooking, cleaning, ironing, reading, driving, playing, flying, juggling, mentoring, role-playing and praying, all to keep their welfare paramount.

I have never ever shunned them as some strange and hateful persons would have the feeble-minded and gullible believe.

The uncouth, green-eyed monsters and miserable plebeians’ obsession with the lives of those they secretly admire or hate can lead to some rather curious acts of malice.

I have plenty praise for all the Earth Angels; family, lovers and loyal friends who helped me through my work and studies to care for our kind, courteous and gifted children.

Like all youngsters, they too have their highs and lows but they have been the joy of my life for years and still are.

Whilst the culture in which I was raised influenced me to lean towards raising my children as Asante, Christian, well-mannered, audacious, industrious, cosmopolitan and heterosexual, I do not consider it my place to pontificate, praise or condemn the sexuality any adult identifies with.

Each of us is a sum of many parts and sexual orientation is only one.

I bow with respect to the culture of my people and habitat but I also respect the culture and choices of others in theirs.

I am an open-hearted, open-minded tourist in God’s vast lands, who embraces all colour, race and creed:

Religion; Atheist, Christian, Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Pagan or other,

Gender Identity; Male Female Queer or other
Sexual orientation; Heterosexual, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transvestite or other, and

Skin tone; black, brown, yellow, pink, white, pale or other

I have seen, encountered and worked in offices and at corporate functions, exhibitions and stately banquets with them all.

What I have learnt through travel and open mind is that they have more similarities than differences with you and I.

We all have a shared humanity even though we walk and talk differently, dress and stress differently, win and sin differently.

My admiration and respect for the talents of Oscar Wilde the thinker, writer and aesthete, Tom Ford the designer and film maker, Tim Cook the CEO of Apple, David Geffen, co-founder of DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. and investor in Apple, Peter Mandelson the producer turned politician, Queen Latifah, rap artiste and actress, Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon the broadcasters, Ryan Murphy the writer, director and producer of Glee, Edward Enninful, first black editor of style Bible Vogue and Sir Ian Murray McKellen, CH, CBE (born 25 May 1939) the English actor, recipient of six Laurence Olivier Awards, a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BIF Award, two Saturn Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, two Critics’ Choice Awards, two Oscar nominations, four BAFTA nominations and five Emmy Award nominations are not diminished by their sexual identity nor orientation.

My son Darkwah is a gentle, creative, confident, erudite and hard-working 23 year-old who has studied Fashion Design and worked as Sales Executive for Harrods and Givenchy, Sales Executive then Stylist – Luxury Accessories for Tom Ford, Account Executive for Haddon PR and is now Fashion Editor for the Gay Times, arguably the world’s biggest magazine in its genre. And yes I love him, I admonish him, I scold him and I celebrate him as a loving father.

Whats your difference? Whats your talent? What’s your sin?

As you ponder whether to accept and share yours in spirit and truth with the world, take a moment to ask yourself if those people and things you aim your wrath and persecution at are the cause of the state you are in.

Also ask your parents, and your children, if they would treat you the way you treat others in the event that your sexuality were any different.

It warms my heart to see that my dearly beloved son has the courage and clarity of mind to speak up for himself, as everyone should to enable all live without narrow-mindedness, prejudice, fear and hate.

If each one would spend time doing something that brings them closer to realizing their goals, purpose and happiness whilst respecting the existence of others and safeguarding the environment and public purse, we would all be better for it.

All of us cannot be simultaneously happy with the way everyone finds their peace and happiness but we can agree to let what we see wrong in others never overshadow what is wrong with ourselves.

Whether my son says he is straight or gay, he will forever remain my dearly beloved son. Dig that.

 

Efya walks out of interview after she was told Nigerian jollof is the bestefya-1

Over the weekend, Ghanaian music diva Efya was in Lagos as she was billed to perform at the 2017 Buckwyld n Breathless concert.

As part of her media tour, she came by the NET for an interview where she spoke about her affiliations with Wizkid, the Starboy imprint, challenges in the Ghanaian music industry and also hinted on releasing a new project.

During the interview, we put the singer on the spotlight by asking her if she thinks Nigerian jollof is better than Ghanaian jollof and her reaction was… she walked away -for a short while.

The Jollof war between Nigeria and Ghana has been ongoing for the longest time and it is expected that the singer would come to the defence of her people.

The battle between Nigerian and Ghanaian Jollof Rice has reached almost epic proportions online.

There is a constant argument on Twitter between Nigerians and Ghanaians over which country has the best Jollof Rice.

Nigerians scored a lot of points in the Jollof Rice debate when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg visited Nigeria in August 2016 and gushed about the country’s Jollof Rice.

I’m too ‘jeje’ for Bukom Banku – Sista Afiasister-afia-1

Highlife artiste, Sista Afia has said she is too ‘jeje’ for Bukom-based boxer Bukom Banku.

She made this known in an interview with Pulse.com.gh’s David Mawuli.

When asked if the brand of Bukom Banku is the best of brands, Sista Afia however, said she cannot determine the brand direction for the boxer who was currently defeated in a well-publicized bout against Bastie Samir.

She said “I’m not the right person to determine whether Bukom Banku’s brand is good or not. He’s just doing what he has to do and I’m not in the position to decide for him. Basically, he has to do what he has to because it’s his own life and career.”

Delay Edited My Interview With Her To Disgrace Me – Joyce Blessing

delay-vs-joyce-blessing-640x330

Many people have described Gospel Musician, Joyce Blessing as an ingrate after watching her interview with Delay on ‘The Delay Show’ mainly because of how she answered questions on her break up with her former manager/producer, Kwasi Ernest.

Joyce Blessing in another interview has explained what really happened on Delay’s set that day-which is on the blind side of the public revealed that Delay bullied her with ‘agenda set’ and ‘contemptous’ questions, making her look as a bad person in the eyes of the public. Joyce also disclosed that her husband had to even halt the interview at some point.

Joyce claims that Delay edited the interview just to disgrace her and that the interview was not complete.Joyce Blessing who’s now signed on to Zylofon Media made all of these revelations in an interview with Dave Hammer.

“Delay wants the downfall of artistes, she edited my interview to disgrace me. That was not a complete interview” Joyce Blessing made all these revelations to Dave Hammer, host of Hello FM Entertainment Review.

We are tempted to believe Joyce Blessing that Delay bullied her on the show because, Delay has suffered a similar fate with Tornado. You would recall all of the dark revelations Tornada made about Delay. So in a way, Delay feels that she was the one who brought Tornado into the limelight but Tornado is being ungrateful to her today.

We also gather that, Delay was fed with some privileged information by Kwasi Ernest, which was evident in the line of questions she threw at Joyce Blessing in that interview. So in a way, Delay felt she and Ernest have suffered the same fate of people they have helped being ‘ungrateful’ to them today.

Well, we will leave that to the court of public opinion to be the judge.

Delay Ruined My Music Brand – Mzbel

mzbel2

Mzbel, Ghanaian songstress, has expressed her utmost disappointment in Delay on the GHOne TV’S RythmzLive show hosted by Berla Mundi. To her, she gets disappointed anytime she sees Delay.

If you could remember, the alleged amorous relationship between Mzbel and Prince Kofi Amoabeng, former UT Bank boss was confirmed by the former via an interview on the DELAY Show.

According to the songstress, during the interview on the Delay Show and the host, Deloris Frimpong Manso aka Delay asked a sarcastic question about her amorous relationship with Prince Kofi Amoabeng whereas she also answered sarcastically.

“Delay asked a sarcastically question about my relationship with Kofi Amoabeng and I also gave a sarcastically answer to her.”However, right after her response to the question, she immediately told Delay that her relationship with Kofi Amoabeng was just normal as they usually hung out or go out.

“I, however, explained to her right after my earlier sarcastic answer that the relationship existing between Amoabeng and myself was just a normal one where we just hang out.”

Her disappointment came in when Delay decided to edit and take off certain parts of her answers and only dwell on the sarcastic side even to the extent of using it as advert. Mzbel told Berla Mundi that she and her manager approached Delay about it but nothing positive came out.

“My manager and I approached Delay and drew her attention on how she (Delay) edited the interview and it’s affecting her brand but delay seemed unconcern. Delay is only interested using that part to promote and sell her show”, Mzbel stated.

Well, it seems Mzbel is not the first person to express his outmost disappointment in Delay pertaining to how she edit interviews to satisfy her parochial interest. Not long ago, Joyce Blessing, a gospel musician, had a bone of contention with Delay for similar claims.
