Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale sparked some debates on social media after he was seen kissing his bodyguard, Shatta Kumodji, in a now-viral video.

The “Freedom” hitmaker had supposedly given his friend, Kumodji, one of his diamond chains. The two hugged and gave each other a peck on the lips.

Even with the caption, many had no clue why Shatta Wale would opt to kiss a man, but, in a tweet reacting to the speculations, he said that it was all for his fans.

According to him, his fans like to see him kiss because it makes them happy.

“Kissing makes my fans happy 😂🥂,” Shatta Wale wrote after the video went viral.

Meanwhile, some people on social media began speculating that the musician might be queer after they saw the video.

Others, however, believed that Shatta Wale and his friend only shared an unromantic kiss, therefore, disputing claims of the singer being queer.

One Twitter user shared pictures of other men kissing other colleagues in the same “friendly” fashion.

However, some fans are still not pleased and are not buying his explanation. They believe this is direct support for the LGBTQ community – something they believe should be barred.

The Ningo Prampram MP, Sam George, who has been an advocate for the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values 2021 bill also known as the anti-LGBTQI+ bill, also reacted to the video.

He noted that he suspects the “Ayoo” hitmaker was high on drugs when he decided to kiss his fellow man on the lips.

“E be like broad man smoke the wrong leaves. Maybe e go do snap take explain na w3i di3r, I’m not handstand, (sic)” he tweeted.

This video came hours after Shatta Wale posted a video of himself and his new girlfriend making out.

“Leave me make I chop love sha, (sic)”, he wrote alongside numerous emojis expressing how happy he was to have found love again.
