Michael Essien has received a lot of stick on his Instagram page after he openly declared his support for the LGBTQ community in Ghana.
He wrote: “We see you, we hear you, we support you. Our LGBTQIA plus Community in Ghana. #ghanasupportequality ????????????????”
Homosexuality is a forbidden topic in Ghana and country president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has categorically stated it will not be legalized in the country.
An exasperated fan wrote: “You just lost your one follower, good luck, byee.”
