Ghanaian actress apologises over women need men to survive comment



Ghanian actress, Moesha Boduong, has apologised to African women, for offending their sensibilities following her interview with Christiane Amanpour on CNN.

According to her, it was not her intention to offend anybody and she prayed that people will find the heart to forgive her.Apologetic Moesha took to her Instagram page to state that the full video of the interview will be out by weekend and people will get to understand what she really had in mind. However, she apologises for hurting African women so badly.

She wrote, ” Dear Ghana, 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 apologise to all especially my African Sister.

“I pray you 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!”

Moesha Boduong became the subject of ridicule after she appeared in the new series of Christiane Amanpour’s Sex & Love Around the World, where she claimed, women need men to be able to have a good standard of living.

In the interview, which was shot in a nail studio, the actress revealed the reason she is dating her boyfriend. She stated that the man takes care of her bills; rent, car, and others in exchange for her loyalty.


An obviously exasperated Amanpour couldn’t believe what she heard and turned to the nail technician, who revealed that she too is dating a man for the sake of life’s comforts, even though her beau is not a married man.

After this interview aired, there have been several reactions from Ghanaians lambasting Moesha, even though a segment of Twitter users corroborated her experience.

An interesting you live in . In the I live in, there are countless independent women who would laugh at the thought of needing a man to survive. @CNN we would appreciate more intentionality in choosing which you would like to project.


Just when we were beginning to portray our African Women as powerful and independent, @Moeshaboduong1 a Ghanaian Actor/Model decided to ruin everything on the world’s stage. @camanpour she does not represent Africa or Ghana. We deny her.
