Former Black Stars midfielder Michael Essien has become the first football star in the country to openly declare support for the Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ+) group in Ghana.
Essien in a social media post assured the group of his support and urged to continue fighting for their rights.
“We see you, we hear you, we support you. Our LGBTIA community in Ghana,” a post on the Black Stars legend reads.

However, the ex-Chelsea star was criticised by some of his followers, leading to the deletion of the post.
Thus, checks made by our outfit can’t trace the post under discussion as it’s nowhere to be found on the verified Instagram page of the celebrated Ghanaian retired-footballer.
