Actress and singer Patricia Kihoro wants everyone to know that she has no problem with people who think she is a lesbian.

Rumours have been swirling that the charming actress could be playing for the other 'team'.

Patricia has now come out to address the rumours by stating that she was first introduced to her mother's gay friends at the age of 16 there was no "big deal about it".

That encounter formed her opinion about homosexuality and she would "not take it as an insult if someone said or thinks she is a lesbian".

"The first people I ever met who were openly gay were friends of my mum. I was probably 16 years and she didn't make a big deal about it. I have been accused of being lesbian. But, first of all it is not an accusation, because calling me lesbian is not an insult. I have met wonderful human beings who are homosexual, and are far better than people who have stood in certain standards of judging others."

Kihoro made the remarks at the official screening of "Rafiki", a lesbian themed movie.

Last year, she denied being in a relationship with female rapper Fena Gitu.
