Some female celebrities in Ghana have taken to their social media handles to respond to a viral video of actress Moesha Bodoung over claims that it is not easy to make it in Ghana on your own as a woman due to the economy.
Their comments and sentiments come on the heels of a viral interview the actress granted to international journalist, Christiane Amanpour about ways of taking care of yourself as a woman in Ghana.
