Ayittey Powers fuels Bukom Banku homosexuality rumours as he alleges on radio, that the controversial boxer has once made sexual advances at him
Just when we thought we have had enough of Banku’s escapades, more episodes continue to unfold. Controversial boxer, Bukom Banku’s name has found itself back again in the news following news of him being a homosexual. Bukom Banku has been accused by his one time friend, Ayittey Powers – also a boxer, of practicing homosexuality.
The Bukom Banku homosexuality rumours come after the comic boxer reportedly assaulted a hairdresser. Banku last week, made the news when he was arrested and arraigned before court, for slapping a hairdresser who refused to kiss him.
Powers, who was speaking on Happy FM when he made the comments against Braimah Kamoko aka Bukom Banku, alleged that Banku has once made sexual advances at him in the past. According to him (Powers), Banku told him he was nice and attractive, and wanted to get involved in homosexual acts with him.
But Banku who’s assault case is still ongoing at the circuit court, has responded to the claims made by his one time pal, saying they are false claims. According to Banku, he once joked with Powers by expressing his intention to kiss him, but never meant it. Banku explaining the incident he asked for a kiss from Powers, said that because he had beaten Powers in the ring twice, he jokingly called him (Powers) his wife, and asked for a kiss.
He explained that Powers took his jokes personal and began insulting him. Banku has also defended himself in court on the assault case, saying he only jovially asked the hairdresser (Martha) to kiss him, since he had jokingly been referring to her as “my wife”.
Bukom Banku and Ayittey Powers who were close friends in the past, have been at each other’s neck for some years with both claiming superiority in the ring.
