Gospel musician, Ohemaa Mercy real name Mercy Twum-Ampofo has revealed that those practicing homosexuality need to be shown love.
She made this shocking statement in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Fm. She further explained that it is the only way to get them to abandon the sadistic act, which she said is spiritual.
“It takes God for one to be delivered from homosexuality. We need to bring those in homosexuality closer to us and talk them out,” she added.
Ohemaa Mercy’s comments triggers the growing pressure on the Akufo-Addo government by various world leaders including the United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May for the country to soften its stance on homosexuality.
Ohemaa Mercy released her first album in the latter part of November 2004. Entitled Adamfo Papa, the album enjoyed massive airplay after its release, which brought Ohemaa into the limelight. She won seven nominations for the 2006 Ghana Music Awards but did not win any of the awards. She later won the Discovery of the year for the Gospel Music Awards the same year.
