Social media was thrown into a state of confusion last night, after a member of the popular Kenyan band, Sauti Sol revealed that he is now a member of the LGBTQ + community.
Although gay sex is punishable by 14 years imprisonment in Kenya, this is clearly a challenge of the law.
Chimano’s opening up about his sexuality is being hailed as a boost to the LGBT community. The public declaration made by Willis Chimano came as he explained the idea behind his latest project in which he featured members of the LGBT community.
He told the local Standard newspaper that his latest project was “a true representation of who he is.” “It is the first time I am expressing myself in a song. You really get to know who Chimano is and that is a heavy crown to carry. It is just a representation of the underground ballroom culture within the queer community… which I am part of,” he said.
