A Zambian-born Black Panther actor has expressed embarrassment after a video of him posing N@kk€d spread on social media.
“Recently there was an unsavory video released of Shumba Mutukwa to the Zambian public from his 20s,” Patrick Shumba Mutukwa’s publicist, Larrissa Long, said in a statement published by the Lusaka Times.
However, she said stories that he starred in G.ay P0rn were inaccurate.
“He is not now, nor was he ever a G.ay P0rn actor,” Ms Long told BBC Africa Live.
The images have caused a huge storm in Zambia. Some have accused the actor of being “evil” and “satanic”, while others branded his critics as “hypocrites” who wanted to act “holier” than others, reports the BBC’s Kennedy Gondwe from the capital, Lusaka.
