Ghanaian media personality and mental health advocate, Abena Korkor, recently disclosed on her X account that she is as bisexual, emphasizing that there is no shame in being one.
This revelation, made on October 11, 2023, followed a tweet by Nigerian news blog YabaLeftOnline regarding allegations made by Will Smith’s former assistant, Brother Bilaal, about an incident involving Will Smith and Duane Martin.
In her tweet, Abena Korkor stated, “There is no shame in being a bisexual. I am one.”
Abena Korkor, formerly a co-host of TV3’s Ladies Circle, known for providing a platform for women to discuss their challenges, faced dismissal from the media organization in June 2023 after sharing a video of herself in lingerie on social media.
As a mental health advocate diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Abena Korkor has been outspoken about her condition and its impact on her life. She has also been involved in various controversies, including leaking a list of men she allegedly had encounters with and sharing explicit content online.
Abena Korkor’s announcement of her bisexuality coincides with Ghana’s consideration of the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, commonly known as the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.
