Former Black Stars player Michael Essien has been in the bad books of Ghanaians over a comment he made about LGBT rights in Ghana.
Michael Essien took to his Instagram handle a few days ago to show support for LGBT rights in Ghana.
The post made by the former Chelsea and Real Madrid player sparked an uproar on the internet.
Although some supported Michael Essien’s statement, the majority of Ghanaians bashed him for extending his support for LGBT rights in Ghana.
Amid the trend surrounding the former Black Stars midfielder, photos of his wife, Akosua Puni and his children have surfaced online.
In one of the photos, Essien posed with his wife at an event they attended together.
In another photo, his wife posed with their two children Michelle and Michael Jnr.
