Kenyans have had a lot of negative comments about LGBT people, now here is a reply from them, in the form of a song.
Yes it’s true, Kenya’s first homo gospel singer, George Barasa a.k.a Joji Baro and lesbian rapper, Noti Flow have teamed up. The song, “Same Love” is a remix of the original song by Macklemore ft. Ed Sheeran. It talks about the real life of a homosexual in Kenya. The song is a debut and tribute to Joji Baro, who, being the first gay gospel singer to come out of hiding, has passed through a lot. To the point of wanting to kill himself at one point some time back.
Through the song, they pass on a message that LGBT people are still people. With a right to live and express themselves like any other citizen. Who are we to judge them and force them into changing?
Instead of crucifying them, they want to be heard. They want people to understand what made them what they are. LGBT is not a disease.
