South Africa based Ugandan Businesswoman Zari Hassan has come out to defend her son Raphael Ssemwanga Junior, after he went live on Instagram, claiming that he is Gay.
On Wednesday, Zari Hassan and Ivan Ssemwanga’s son Raphael Ssemwanga, through a live Instagram video, revealed that he finds men more attractive that women, and he wants to have sex with men.
Raphael pointed out that it is something he has been thinking about for too long and has come to the realization that he likes gents.
In his revelation, Raphael acknowledged that he might be judged but that’s what he “sees” in his heart and “just what it is.’
“I took some time, I was thinking every time, and I think I like gents. You guys might judge me, you might think it’s not who I am, but in my heart, I see gents attractive and not females but that’s just what it is.” Raphael Ssemwanga
In a comment on Instagram, the South Africa-based Ugandan socialite and businesswoman also stressed that Raphael actually has a girlfriend.
On one of Zari’s latest posts on Instagram, a user commented; “@Zarithebosslady Mwano kaniumna kujitangaza ni shoga, mtihani sana.”
“He actually has a girlfriend amechoka na takataka kumtongoza Dm. Wanawake wakubwa kumtumia uchi wao. Wengine kuomba omba Dollar. Maybe it was a good thing to say he is Gay. Now you all will chill and leave him alone,” Zari replied.
According to Ms Hassan, her son was forced to do so in order to discourage older women from disturbing him with their nudes on a daily. The mother of five went on to disclose that Raphael has a girlfriend.
A video that is making rounds on different social media platforms shows Raphael confessing how he finds men more attractive than women.
It is not the first time Raphael is coming out to express his sexuality and belonging to the LGBT community.
In June last year, Raphael who is Zari’s second born from her marriage to late ex-husband Ivan Don Ssemwanga commented on her mother’s relationship with singer Diamond Platnumz, saying they did not mind having him around because he was the one their mother had chosen (then).
“I didn’t mind because it’s who my mother chose so you know I can’t do anything. If he was making her happy at the time, then that was okay with me,” responded Raphael.
