I Love My Son Whether Gay or Not – KKD


News broke yesterday that the son of
ex-broadcaster, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah has opened up about being gay and the
fact that he was tired living to please people.

Although Ghanaians have their problems
with gays, father of Kwaku Kyei Darkwah, KKD has said he has no problem
with the choice of his son indicating that he respects his decision to
go public about sexuality.
Announcing his position on his son’s sexuality in a Facebook post, KKD posted:
King Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) writes:
A beautiful Friday to you, family, friends, followers, frenemies and foes.
I have been notified of the eagerly
re-published article on my dearly beloved son Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah’s
speaking up on his acceptance of his sexuality.
His words were candid and courageous.
“The first step to being happy is to be honest and embrace who you are in its totality.” -Anon.
His statement of his conviction and comfort with himself as a young man is a matter of an individual’s sexuality.

Come joy or pain, sunshine or rain, success or failure, I will always
love my son Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah and my daughter Ohemaa Asokwa
My love, care and devotion to my children are non-negotiable.
There are ex-wives and ex-husbands but there are no ex-children nor ex-parents.
No truth nor lies, no malicious gossip nor ill-willed broadcast can ever
change my love and devotion for my children no matter who they think
they are.

Through divorce and a year after, I stayed strong through the storm as a
single father to raise my son and daughter aged 7+ and 5+, working,
teaching, cooking, cleaning, ironing, reading, driving, playing, flying,
juggling, mentoring, role-playing and praying, all to keep their
welfare paramount.
I have never ever shunned them as some strange and hateful persons would have the feeble-minded and gullible believe.

The uncouth, green-eyed monsters and miserable plebeians’ obsession with
the lives of those they secretly admire or hate can lead to some rather
curious acts of malice.

I have plenty praise for all the Earth
Angels; family, lovers and loyal friends who helped me through my work
and studies to care for our kind, courteous and gifted children.
Like all youngsters, they too have their highs and lows but they have been the joy of my life for years and still are.
Whilst the culture in which I was raised
influenced me to lean towards raising my children as Asante, Christian,
well-mannered, audacious, industrious, cosmopolitan and heterosexual, I
do not consider it my place to pontificate, praise or condemn the
sexuality any adult identifies with.
Each of us is a sum of many parts and sexual orientation is only one.
I bow with respect to the culture of my people and habitat but I also respect the culture and choices of others in theirs.

I am an open-hearted, open-minded tourist in God’s vast lands, who embraces all colour, race and creed:
Religion; Atheist, Christian, Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Pagan or other,
Gender Identity; Male Female Queer or other
Sexual orientation; Heterosexual, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transvestite or other, and
Skin tone; black, brown, yellow, pink, white, pale or other
I have seen, encountered and worked in offices and at corporate functions, exhibitions and stately banquets with them all.

What I have learnt through travel and open mind is that they have more similarities than differences with you and I.
We all have a shared humanity even though we walk and talk differently, dress and stress differently, win and sin differently.
My admiration and respect for the
talents of Oscar Wilde the thinker, writer and aesthete, Tom Ford the
designer and film maker, Tim Cook the CEO of Apple, David Geffen,
co-founder of DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. and investor in Apple, Peter
Mandelson the producer turned politician, Queen Latifah, rap artiste
and actress, Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon the
broadcasters, Ryan Murphy the writer, director and producer of Glee,
Edward Enninful, first black editor of style Bible Vogue and Sir Ian
Murray McKellen, CH, CBE (born 25 May 1939) the English actor, recipient
of six Laurence Olivier Awards, a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award, a
Screen Actors Guild Award, a BIF Award, two Saturn Awards, four Drama
Desk Awards, two Critics’ Choice Awards, two Oscar nominations, four
BAFTA nominations and five Emmy Award nominations are not diminished by
their sexual identity nor orientation.

My son Darkwah is a gentle, creative, confident, erudite and
hard-working 23 year-old who has studied Fashion Design and worked as
Sales Executive for Harrods and Givenchy, Sales Executive then Stylist –
Luxury Accessories for Tom Ford, Account Executive for Haddon PR and is
now Fashion Editor for the Gay Times, arguably the world’s biggest
magazine in its genre. And yes I love him, I admonish him, I scold him
and I celebrate him as a loving father.
Whats your difference? Whats your talent? What’s your sin?
As you ponder whether to accept and share yours in spirit and truth with
the world, take a moment to ask yourself if those people and things you
aim your wrath and persecution at are the cause of the state you are
Also ask your parents, and your children, if they would treat you the
way you treat others in the event that your sexuality were any
It warms my heart to see that my dearly beloved son has the courage and
clarity of mind to speak up for himself, as everyone should to enable
all live without narrow-mindedness, prejudice, fear and hate.

If each one would spend time doing something that brings them closer to
realizing their goals, purpose and happiness whilst respecting the
existence of others and safeguarding the environment and public purse,
we would all be better for it.
All of us cannot be simultaneously happy
with the way everyone finds their peace and happiness but we can agree
to let what we see wrong in others never overshadow what is wrong with
Whether my son says he is straight or gay, he will forever remain my dearly beloved son. Dig that.
#son #family #love #father #forever
