Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol’s Bien Aime has come forward to show his unwavering support for the LGBTQ community.
Speaking to TV47 via video link from London, Bien shared his opinion on the LGBTQ debate that has been raging on in the country since the Supreme Court ruling that allowed members of the community to register NGO groups.
Bien stressed that he is a strong supporter of the homosexual community, noting that Kenyans have no business snooping on what people do in their bedrooms.
The Sauti Sol singer further stated that the LGBTQ debate was distracting Kenyans from the main issues affecting the country like corruption.
“Mi nasupport LGBTQ sana. Mi nasupport watu kufanya kenye wanataka expression yao. Hio Kenya shida zetu ni njaa, shida zetu ni economic empowerment, shida zetu ni proper education in our schools… There are so many problems that come before this LGBTQ issue lakini I feel like the government is using this to hoodwink you guys and to remove your attention from the things that actually matter.
“Lakini LGBTQ si shida kubwa kuliko corruption kwa hio country so please focus on the things that are important hio LGBTQ si shida ya mtu kenye mtu anafanya kwa bedroom. Shida ambayo inatukumba sisi wote na inatuinvolve sisi wote ni corruption, ni proper education in our schools. What is the education system teaching our children? Kuna njaa in northern Kenya, why are we still experiencing Kenyans who are dying of hunger. Unataka kuniambia LGBTQ community ikiisha njaa itapotea? corruption itapotea? Kuna so many things that are going wrong but we are focusing n the wrong things.
