‘How righteous are you?’ – Shasha Marley questions those opposing LGBT+ community

Legendary reggae musician Shasha Marley has questioned whether those who oppose the LGBT+ community think of themselves as saints and added that no sin is greater than another to challenge those who hold such views.


The “Mata Tuee” hitmaker stated, “It is tragic that some people have protested in favour of the bill, stating that LGBT+ people are bad and should be put in jail. Simply put, I want to know how virtuous each of these people is. Do you possess saintliness? Considering that no sin is greater than any other,”


In an interview with Kafui Dey on GTV’s breakfast show, he said, “If you want your brother to be jailed because he sins differently from you, that is not fair. The Bible says everyone has sinned and fallen short in the glory of God.”

He recalled, saying, “One day on my way to Takoradi, I met a young guy on a bus who was gay, and I did not know until he told me.” He genuinely wants to get out of it, but he is scared of the stigma alone, which could even lead him to commit suicide. I discovered this when I asked what was going on.”


“It tells you that if you show them love and affection, they might change their mind instead of passing judgement on them,” he said, echoing the sentiments of others.
