Transgender artist Angel Maxine said the only reason Ghanaians disliked their hit “Wo Fie” was because of their collective hatred of gays, lesbians and other homosexuals.
According to her, the song did not reach the dance of music-loving fans because it exposed the hatred and hostility of Ghanaians towards homosexuals and the deep-seated animosity between the citizenry and the LGBTQ community.
Born Maxwell Okyere Opoku, Angel Maxine released the track “Wo Fie” to put into perspective why the rights of the LGBTQ community in Ghana needed to be protected and why she believed Ghanaians hated homosexuals.
She claimed that her song was a hit, but Ghanaians have deliberately failed to appreciate and promote it because it spoke deeply about the LGBTQ situation and how it discriminates.
The love of a dog is only second to that of a mother
Mother’s love is the great, surging, divine river that flows forever through humanity

In an interview with Benjamin Akakpo on Joy News TV, the gay lawyer stated that despite the opposition, she is not afraid to sing for the liberation of her colleagues.
According to Maxine, her song gives hope and inspiration to the LGBTQ community.
“… well it was well received but you know they will still judge it for being transgender.” It’s bad because the transgender is telling them the truth. But for those who understand and believe in me, I can say that “Wo Fie” is the most popular song in Ghana. “Wo Fie” brings joy to the LGBTQ community in my opinion. It reassures them that they are not alone. That’s the beauty of the song “Wo Fie”.
The transgender’s song gained popularity after it featured prominent showbiz characters such as Sister Derby and One Luv Kubolor.
Maxine emphasized in the song that in almost every household effeminate men, also known as “Kojobesia” in Ghana, are present, which makes it unfair for them to be discriminated against.
Please, I want this message to reach all media houses in Ghana. Please help me to tag it

She also stressed that lesbians and homosexuals are found in every family and it is inappropriate to judge and condemn their sexual preferences.
In the meantime, Parliament will look forward to debating the anti-LGBTQ bill … weighing the pros and cons and ultimately deciding whether or not to pass it.
Sam George has given Ghananains his words that he will remain steadfast in his quest to get the bill passed, with his energy source drawn from the support the Ghanaians have given him so far.
