Ugandan Gospel Singer Rhoda K reveals she is lesbian
US-based Ugandan singer Rhoda K Shelbie has for a long time sparked rumours that she intimately involved with fellow women.
Questions and allegations regarding her sexuality emerged last year after she posted photos and a video in which she was kissing a yet to be identified white girl on the lips on social media. On Valentine’s Day, she posted pictures with the same lady sparking fresh rumours that there was something between them.
Whereas she has been confidently posting the pictures and videos having fun with her fellow women, she had never come out to confess being intimate with them.
During an exclusive Interview with a local You Tuber days ago, she was asked if she has plans of getting married to a man to which the singer responded saying she is a lesbian and has never had feelings for men. “I have never dated a man by the way so I don’t know what happens. Right now it has not crossed my mind yet but we leave that to God. This is a personal question but I would say I love girls in different ways. Whether intimate love or just normal friendship, I don’t know how to describe it but I have no problem to do with girls and I don’t care what they say,” she said.
She further added that she has no problem with Ugandans who judge her for loving her fellow women.
“My life, my way. Who am I to crucify a girl who likes a girl? It is God who created us you know. If Rhoda K loves a girl, it is her decision. You not gonna come into my life and say “why did you do this?” She noted with emphasis.
Rhoda K becomes the second diaspora-based Ugandan female artiste to open up about her sexuality following Julie Mutesasira’s wedding with a fellow woman in 2020.
