Ugandan dancehall singer Bennie Gunter Of the GunTalk Music has finally come out to address the allegation that he impregnated a woman and refused to take up the responsibility for raising the child. Bennie reportedly hooked up with a one Phiona Akankwansa in Namungona who was working as a housemaid in 2017 and made him pregnant.
Bennie Gunter however abandoned the girl after realising that he had planted a live seed in her womb. Now that the child was born and is growing with the mother, Bennie Gunter has come under the spotlight after the woman came out to ask for help. The saga has attracted the attention of the state minister for children’s affairs Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi.
“I realized in December that I was pregnant, so in January I told him that I was expecting, he told me to abort but he didn’t even give me money for abortion. But I decided to keep the pregnancy with hopes that he might like the baby after its born. But I called him after giving birth and he didn’t pickup, I then sent him pictures of the baby but he didn’t respond,” Akankwasa said recently.
However, despite the ongoing fracas, Bennie Gunter has insisted that he is not the father and that Fiona is merely cooking up stories. In a social media post, Bennie Gunter seems to suggest that all that is going on is aimed at soiling his musical reputation.
