For two days now a topic has been at the centre of discussions on Facebook, or WhatsApp groups in Cameroon. Internet users are debating on the possible homosexuality of Charlotte Dipanda. Some photos showing the artist receiving or giving trivial loving gestures to a lady are generating controversy. This is especially bothering because the lady has a boyish style and look.
Web users immediately added another image showing two people having sex: one who is supposed to be the artist and the other Patricia Essombo, her alleged partner.
According to a source close to the two women, Patricia Essombo, presented as the partner of Charlotte Dipanda, is only the artist’s older sister. Another source confirms the family relationship which exists between the two women. According to the same source, the tender gestures they trade and affection they have for one another have been the same since their childhood.
With regards to the photo of a sexual nature meant to prove the homosexuality of the artist, a simple search with google image with this photo removes any doubt. This image comes from a Nigerian adult movie.
