Ghanaian boxer Ayittey Powers claims he was offered $10,000 by fellow boxer Bukom Banku to have anal sex with him.
Banku is currently being investigated for assaulting a hairdresser, who refused to kiss him last week.
He was put before court last week. According to Ayittey Powers, Bukom Banku, contacted him to plead on his behalf after assaulting the hairdresser but he refused because he thought it was unethical of Banku to have assaulted a woman who had done nothing wrong.
Powers further disclosed that Bukom Banku has been making advances at him for some time which he found a bit abnormal.
Speaking exclusively to 3news.com, Ayittey Powers recalled the text conversation which led to Bukom Banku offering him $10,000 to have anal sex with him.
“I was at home one Saturday afternoon when I received a message on my phone so I decided to check and realised I had a message saying ‘Powers I love you’ and it surprised me”.
Ayittey Powers According to Ayittey Powers he texted back asking who the sender was even though he knew it was Bukom Banku.
He said he did so because he wanted to be sure and not to his surprise, Banku replied saying it was him and he loves me.
“He texted back telling me that he wanted to sleep with me and admitted that he was gay insisting he wanted to sleep with me.
“I intentionally asked him how much he would pay if I agree to sleep with him and he said he will give me$10,000.
“He still kept insisting but I thought he was joking until later in the conversation that I realised he was getting serious.
“I asked him if he meant it and he replied in the affirmative saying, he was very serious and it would only be between us, then I started recording the conversation with my phone.
“He kept begging me telling me I’m handsome so he would love to have sex with me which really shocked me.
Powers promised to make evidence of the text conversation public if Bukom Banku comes out to deny.
“I have all the evidence on my phone and I will release it if he dares me,” Ayittey Powers shouted.
“How can a man wear eyelashes and bleach himself thinking it is normal,” the boxer said angrily.
“He is gay and God will punish him and I say this because I believe in God and Prophet TB Joshua who is my father knows I will never do such a thing in my life”.
