Actress and Instagram model Moesha Boduong has rendered an unqualified apology to Ghanaians for her comments on CNN’s series ‘Sex and Love Around the world’.
The self-acclaimed celebrity, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that Ghana’s economy is so bad to the extent that women are compelled to have sexual affairs with men just to survive.
“In Ghana, our economy is in such a way that you just need someone to take care of you.
“You can’t make enough money as a woman here because even if you want to get an apartment, in Ghana you pay two years in advance and I just started working, where will I get money to pay for an apartment for two years,” she told Amanpour in an interview.
Her comments attracted outrage from Ghanaians who thought her generalization that all women in Ghana sleep with men to survive was uncalled for, especially with the platform she was offered.
She wrote on her Instagram a few hours ago:
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!
