Chris Attoh talks sexuality in revealing interview

He made these comments after he was asked about his position on the legalisation of homosexuality in the country.

Speaking in a broadcast interview, the actor claimed the rumour was started by a lady who wanted to sleep with him.

According to him, the lady, who was a fan, approached him in the 'green room' wearing jacket after he finished hosting a show at the National Theatre, suggesting the lady was naked.


“The only time I heard about that (being gay) was a young lady friend who promised me she was going to make sure that the industry thought I am a gay,” he said on Angel TV on Wednesday night.

He explained further: “And this was after I hosted a show at the National Theatre one evening. I finished and was walking back to my green room. I was really really tired …

"I wasn’t in the mood for anything but there was a young lady who came to introduce herself as a fan and she had nothing but a jacket on and she took the jacket off.

"I don’t think the rating of the show will allow but long story short, I didn’t yield to it. I was very hot because I was going for some money.  Apart from that I also felt … a piece of meat. It wasn’t something that was attractive and packaged.

"But long story short before I left the room and I asked her to put her clothes on, she promised me she was going to go to every press to tell them I am gay because she gave herself to me and I did nothing. This is a long time ago. So that is the only time I remember and I probably did hear I’m a gay but I didn’t know it’s that serious."


The raging issue dominated the headlines last week when President Nana Akufo-Addo in an Aljazeera interview said the legalisation of homosexuality in Ghana was bound to happen if there was strong demand for it by the populace.

This is not the first time Chris Attoh has denied being gay. In 2012, he denied being gay on Glo’s Big Friday Show, which is hosted by Basket Mouth.

On that show, he said there was no truth in the rumour whatsoever.
