After she was hit with a barrage of criticisms by a section of the public for suggesting that Ghanaian women date married men for their subsistence, Moesha Boduong has deleted the video clip which captured those comments from her Instagram page.
The actress said on CNN that her motivation for dating a married man, just like other women in Ghana, is because the economy has worsened.
“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 get money to pay?,” she said.
The host, Christiane Amanpour who looked shocked by Moesha’s response asked: “are you basically telling me that you are having sex with this guy to pay your rent?”
“Because he can afford to take care of you. He takes care of me, my financials, my apartment, my car, my rent, everything,” Moesha replied.
