I am Not Gay, says Pamputtae

misleading picture and story which have been sending a wrong message to
“There is a rumour going around that Pamputtae is gay and I don’t
want that in my life right now. My friend kept a birthday party and she
hugged me and kissed me. She was simply greeting and congratulating me
on my new birth because I am pregnant right now. But because of how the
picture tek, it looks misleading to the public. Then a certain website
put out a story to add negativity to the picture. It’s damaging to my
life, so I want people to know it is nothing like that,” she said.
According to Pamputtae, her friend is equally upset and they have been best friends for many years.
“She is a good friend. Maybe my career wouldn’t even be where it
is today if it wasn’t her because she is always supportive,” she
“Some people wey a tarnish mi name, look how much people a get
rape and kidnapped, a dat unno fig guh talk bout. When unno see real gay
people unno nuh sey nothing bout it … so stop tarnishing my name and
character. I don’t have a clue what you are talking about,” she said.
