The Minister of Communications and Digitalization, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has opened up about her past life when she was way younger. According to her, she experimented with the practice of lesbianism known in her secondary school days as ‘supi supi’ while growing up as a girl.
Speaking on StarrChat on Wednesday, April 28, and as reported by Ghanaweb, the communication minister revealed that to her, that stage of her life was just a passing phase in which she had to explore her sexuality.
