Ghana’s finest actor, John Dumelo has waded in on the conversation that has currently angered a lot of Ghanaians; Moesha Buduong’s interview on CNN.
The actor says Moesha Boduong has a point in her claim that some women in Ghana depend on men for financial support in return for sexual favours.
Dumelo on Friday April 13, made a personal revelation about how several ladies approached him for money to pay rent or school fees and were willing to offer him sex in return.
“I have been in situations where ladies have messaged me to say that ‘…I need to pay my rent or my school fees or some favour in return I’ll offer you something’…,” the celebrated actor revealed on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM.
Dumelo said in such case, he has had to turn them down and give them the needed assistance. “I told the girl that I wouldn’t do that. ‘If you want money, I’ll give you your money for your rent or whatever it is but I’m not going to give you in return for your sexual favours or anything’,” he narrated to host of the Show, Daniel Dadzie.
Social media has not been cool since Moesha posted the video on her Instagram on Wednesday, She had told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in a documentary that her motivation, just like other women in Ghana, for dating married men, is because the economy is tough.
“In Ghana, our economy is such a way that you need someone to take care of you. You can’t make enough money as a woman here. Because even when you want to get an apartment, in Ghana they take two years’ advance and I just started working where will I get money to pay?”
John Dumelo aligns with Moesha’s statement but departed from her generalisation that women in Ghana depend on men financially.
“What I find wrong is that she generalized it and said every woman in Ghana depends on a man financially…” Dumelo said.
Meanwhile, Moesha has come out to apologise to Ghanaians but has asked them to wait for the full video before they continue their backlash.
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:
