Gospel singer and songwriter MOG Music has avoided taking a clear position on the anti-LGBTQ+ bill that has been passed by Ghana’s parliament and awaits the president’s assent.

The award-winning artist, whose real name is Nana Yaw Boakye, was a guest on the United ShowBiz show on UTV on Saturday.

When asked by the host MzGee about his thoughts on the passage of the bill, he said, “With the job that I do, I would rather plead the fifth. I am saying this to protect my image and my brand. If I say for, they will say something, if I say against, they will say something. So I plead the fifth. What I stand for, in my private caucus I can speak about it, but not on air. Thank you.”

His response drew mixed reactions from the viewers, some of whom praised him for being diplomatic and others who criticized him for being evasive and hypocritical.

The anti-LGBTQ+ Bill, which Ghana’s Parliament passed on February 28, 2024, aims to criminalize the activities of LGBTQ+ individuals within the country.

While it awaits the president’s assent to become law, it has already sparked intense debates and reactions both nationally and internationally. The bill encompasses stringent measures against members and sympathizers of the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana.

The bill has also sparked protests and petitions from opponents of the bill in the country and beyond.

MOG Music has carved a niche for himself in the gospel music scene. His soul-stirring melodies and heartfelt lyrics have resonated with audiences across Ghana and beyond.

As the nation awaits the president’s decision on the bill, MOG Music’s cryptic silence adds intrigue to an already charged debate. Will he eventually break his silence? Only time will reveal the truth behind this gospel artist’s mysterious stance.
