Rapper M.anifest, has declared that he opposes the enactment of Ghana’s proposed Anti-LGBTQ+ Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values bill. The measure is presently being considered by parliament.

He gave his justifications, saying that if the Anti-LGBTQ+ bill were to pass, it would be a flagrant infringement of their right to freedom of choice.

He continued that although he does not support gay and lesbianism, criminalizing it would be an infringement upon the rights of the persons who are involved hence, he does not concur with the passage of the Anti-LQBTQ+ bill which is under consideration in parliament.

Speaking in an interview with Pulse TV and monitored by GhanaWeb, M.anifest emphasized that religious beliefs cannot be relied upon to criminalize the act which breaches the human rights of those involved.

“I am not in support of the anti-LGBTQ+ bill. I’m not in support of anything that is a human rights violation. I think a lot of things in life are very basic. My viewpoints in life in terms of human rights are very basic.

“You can have disagreements whether it’s religious or whatever, but when it comes to human rights, it’s quite clear. It’s not here to infringe on anybody’s rights, whether you disagree or not. So then that’s quite simple. And that cuts across, for me, that’s a basic thing in life,” he said.

The Anti-LGBTQ+ bill is currently under consideration in parliament and it is championed by the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram constituency, Sam Nartey George.

Some celebrities in the country have voiced concerns against the bill citing human rights violations.

It remains to be seen whether the bill would be passed by parliament or not.
