Joseph Awuah-Darko claims Kehinde Wiley Sexually assaulted Him

In an Instagram post on Sunday, the Ghanaian artist alleged that Kehinde Wiley attacked him twice in June 2021.

“I was sexually assaulted by @kehindewiley. It almost destroyed me,” Awuah-Darko wrote. “I hope that my words and openness about my painful experience will enable others to come forward. I hope that whatever unravels creates a path to not only accountability, but also reward and collective healing for other victims.”

Wiley seemingly responded to Awuah-Darko’s allegations in his own Instagram post on Sunday.

“Someone I had a brief, consensual relationship with almost three years ago is now making a false accusation about our time together,” Wiley wrote. “I kindly ask for privacy as I work to clear my name.”
