Ghanaian actress, Moesha Boduong has issued an apology following her provocative interview withCNN which generated a huge controversy on social media.
In the interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the curvy actress argued that Ghana’s economy is so poor that as a woman, you need a man to take care of you and that Ghanaian women can’t make enough money to take care of themselves.
”Our economy is just in such a way that you just need someone to take care of you. You cannot make enough money as a woman here in Ghana because here in Ghana, when you want to rent an apartment you have to pay for two years and I just started working. When will I get money to get an apartment for two years?” she said
When Amanpour asked her if she is basically saying she is having sex with her boyfriend essentially to pay her rent, she said ”Because he can afford to take care of me”.
Taking to Instagram last night to issue an apology, the curvy actress wrote:
‘Dear gh this is Moesha. I have been humbled by all that is going on and I have also learnt a lot in the last few days since the CNN video came out. I have had a lot of time to think and reflect and I APOLOGIZE TO ALL, ESPECIALLY MY AFRICAN SISTERS. I pray u all find it in your hearts to forgive me.
‘It was definitely not my intention to offend any of you. I respect all the hard-working women of our beloved country and accept that some of my utterances were not a reflection of what happens in most homes.’
‘GOD works in mysterious ways and everything happens because he says so?? Thanks for the love, pieces of advice and criticisms. GOD bless us all! The full version of the interview drops this weekend and I hope you can appreciate what I said in its entirety. ‘
‘Thank you. God bless you all!’
