- Christiane Amanpour has reacted to the interview she had with Moesha after her comments that have not gone down well with some Ghanaians
- Moesha is noted to have commented on Ghana's economy and how it is hard to make it on your own as a woman
Award-winning International journalist, Christiane Amanpour, has reacted to some revelations made by Ghanaian actress, Moesha Babiinoti Boduong in an interview that has gone viral on social media.
In a video that was posted on the Instagram handle, the CNN anchor was seen admonishing the actress to be strong and wished her luck in life.
Christiane Amanpour was heard telling the actress to allow her own daughter to be free and independent.
The international journalist added that Moesha’s daughter would be happy to have her as a mother judging by how she (Moesha) had to work hard to make a living for herself.
Moesha shocked many Ghanaians and her interviewer when she admitted that she slept with married men for money.
The Ghanaian actress who doubles as a model revealed that it was almost impossible as a woman to make enough money.
She said to be a successful woman, one needed a man to take care of her – to provide the financial needs of the woman.
However, the actress has received widespread backlash from some Ghanaians on social media and have called her out for degrading very hardworking Ghanaian women.
This fact notwithstanding, some internet users have jumped to the defense of the actress and have called Ghanaians bashing Moesha as ‘hypocrites’.
Moesha is noted as saying, “Ghana, our economy is such that you just need someone to take care of you because you can't make enough money as a woman here. When you want to get an apartment, in Ghana you pay two years in advance and I just started working, where will I get the money,".
Her comments have generated a lot of debate on social media in Ghana with many people disagreeing with her assertion.
Checks by YEN.com.gh however show that the actress has deleted the video from her Instagram account.
In the video below, the deputy education minister, Mrs Barbara Ayisi, speaks on how President Akufo-Addo inspires her, and how the president's success story must also inspire the youth of Ghana to greater heights:
