Ghanaian actress and model, Moesha Babiinoti Boduong has incurred the wrath of many social media users after her recent interview with Cable News Network’s Christiane Amanpour about being a mistress in Ghana.
According to the actress who was speaking on CNN’s ‘Sex and Love around the world’, revealed that Ghana’s economy was such that it was almost impossible to earn enough as a woman.
Ghanaians on social media are running amok over the actress’ comments with the view that it was not the true representation of the lives of many Ghanaian women who are putting in an effort to better their lives.
The social media users have indicated that the actress who is reported to have graduated from the university, should not have generalized her comments to encompass all Ghanaian ladies.
However, some social media users have sided with the actress and concluded that she was speaking the truth since many unemployed young ladies appear to be in the habit of ‘selling their bodies’ to survive.
Not too long ago, Moesha announced that she was going to appear on an international news network, CNN. It was however not clear the purpose of the appearance.
However, the video with the international journalist which has gone viral seems to be attracting backlash for the actress.
Here are some of the reactions on social media in response to Moesha’s interview:
Naa appears to be dumbfounded by the actress’ way of reasoning
Sharkels was of the view that it was a clear case of ‘Beauty without brains’
As for Kwesi, he said that was typical Moesha
I really hope this Moesha interview won’t end at a self-righteous rant but make us have honest conversations about how hard it is for women to get a job/promotion/pay raise on merit & also truthfully engage the statistics on how women have higher poverty and unemployment rates .
The suggestion by actress, Moesha Boduong, in this interview with @CNN‘s Christiane Amanpour (@camanpour) that women in Ghana cannot survive unless they depend on a male “sponsor” appears to have caused quite an outrage. Her followers on IG have been particularly harsh.#HolyCow pic.twitter.com/G3Gcy5khN9
