Joseph Awuah-Darko, a leading figure in Ghana's art community, has taken to Instagram to make serious accusations against globally renowned artist Kehinde Wiley, alleging sexual assault.

According to Awuah-Darko, the incidents occurred during a dinner held on June 9, 2021, at the Creative Art Council within the Noldor Artist Residency, an establishment he founded in 2020.

In a post dated May 19, Joseph recounted the first assault, stating that Wiley had groped his buttocks while he was accompanying him and another guest upstairs to the bathroom.

He emphasized that this action was entirely uncalled for and unprovoked, and claimed it was witnessed by another attendee, though not identified.

Describing the second assault as more severe and violent, Awuah-Darko did not delve into specifics.

These allegations have ignited a wave of responses across social media platforms.

Many have voiced condemnation, viewing the situation as involving homosexual conduct, while others have criticized Kehinde Wiley's actions, branding them as perverse.

Additionally, some have expressed sympathy and solidarity with Joseph for enduring such challenging circumstances.
