Renowned Ghanaian music producer and CEO of Pidgen Music has declared that Ghana’s biggest problem is heterosexual rape and defilement.
Panji Anoff, speaking on the GTV Breakfast Show made this revelation, when a viewer sent a message, asking him if he will accept LGBTQ+ in Ghana.
The music producer responded by saying, “Who am I to accept it, are you asking, will I practice? That is a different matter. That is my choice.’’
He elaborated that in his opinion 'heterosexual rape’ remained the most serious issue Ghana needed to confront.
“We are raping young girls; we are impregnating them. When a 12-year-old is pregnant, they will say oh a 12-year-old is pregnant. Who is the father? The father is not a 12 or 13-year-old boy oo! It’s a fully grown adult. Let us deal with those matters,” he stated.
Panji Anoff said he does not have a problem with two people who love each other and do him no harm. But rather people who harm children and society.
“When they find somebody, raping somebody, they say oh ‘asem we die yeb3 siesie wofie’ (lets resolve the issue at home, not courts), and then the person gets off.
"We make no attempt to prosecute people who rape women or underage children. Let us focus on violent crimes. Rape is a violent crime. There is a victim. Where there is no victim, there is no crime.’’
He was also asked by Kafui Dey, Host of GTV Breakfast show, what he made of the argument that a lot of HIV cases are coming from men sleeping with men.
Mr. Panji responded, saying statistically, that is ‘nonsense’. ‘’I personally believe HIV is a harmless virus. AIDS is a deadly disease but HIV is a harmless virus. I am not the first person to say this.”
According to him, comprehensive research was done by scientists in South Africa, including the former President of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki which reveals there is no link between HIV and AIDS.
“However, I can tell you what all the people who are dying of AIDS have in common. Hemophiliac- antibiotics, prostitute’s- antibiotics, tuberculosis -antibiotics. So, what they have in common is antibiotics.
"Every time you get blood transfusion, they give you a huge dose of antibiotics to stop your body from rejecting the blood. Because by default, your body will actually reject the blood,” he disclosed.
