- Afia Schwarzenegger has written to CNN's Christiane Amanpour over Moesha's comment
- Moesha Boduong revealed she sleeps with a married man to take care of herself, and suggested that a lot of young women in Ghana do the same
Radio presenter Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger, has added her voice to the trending backlash against Moesha Boduong for suggesting many Ghanaian ladies sleep with married men to meet their needs.
According to her, Moesha was wrong to make such a generalized claim, especially when most Ghanaian ladies are working hard to make a living.
Moesha put herself in the firing line when, in an interview with the CNN, she said she depends on a married man she’s dating to cater for her needs.
The actress went on to suggest that that is the case with many women in Ghana due to the harsh economic conditions in the country.
She said: “In Ghana our economy is in such a way that you need someone to just take care of you [because] you can’t make enough money as a woman here.
“Even when you want to get an apartment, you have to pay for two years advance and I just started working so where am I going to get that money to pay for an apartment for two years.”
Asked if she is having sex with a married man essentially because he can afford to pay her rent, Moesha answered in the affirmative, adding that “because he can afford to take care of you”.
“He takes care of me, my financial stuff, my apartment, my car, my rent – everything.”
However, Afia Schwarzenegger believes such a way of life smacks of “laziness”, adding that she would never stoop so low to bed with married men just to meet her needs.
In an Instagram post, the comedienne went in hard on Moesha, insisting she must stop living her life on social media for likes and rather start working.
