Bonang Matheba has lost punte with the gay community, after agreeing to host the second annual Uganda Entertainment Awards.
The popular radio and TV personality faced a Twitter backlash, led by DJ Olwee, over accepting the gig in a country known for it’s anti-homosexual legislation.
“So Bonang who has a huge following of gays who are 1st to fight for her is hosting Ugandan Awards instead refusing in protest of their laws,” wrote Olwee.
“I mean, she’s one of the most powerful women in entertainment in Africa. I’m just saying!”
But some of her fans couldn’t understand what the fuss was about.
“Bonang is not going to UGANDA to promote #AntiGayLaws, she’s going there to work, which is her profession. deal with it and move on,” said one poster.
But Queen B didn’t smaak a Twitter scandal, writing: “@Olwee you have my number. Be blessed.”
