Moesha Budong posted a picture on Instagram today and Ghana is talking, so are we, lol.
Moesha ‘s Claim to faim
In April 2018, Buduong came under criticism from Ghanaians over a controversial interview she gave to CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour. In the interview, Buduong mentioned that Ghanaian women use men as their primary source of income, since the economy is tough.
They do this through engaging in sexual intercourse with the men. She is quoted as saying that “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?”
Her comments received harsh criticism from both men and women who felt she was painting a negative picture of Ghanaian (and by extension African) women.
Some Clebrities Came to her Defense
Celebrities such as John Dumelo, Lydia Forson, Eazzy, DKB and Afia Odo shared their views on Twitter, most of them negative.
Other people also felt the criticism was unwarranted, because the comments made were a reflection of the reality of Ghanaian life. Radio host Captain Smart commended her and entreated Ghanaians to applaud her for speaking the truth.
Christine Amanpour herself has pleaded with the public not to shame Buduong, calling on the President, Nana Akufo-Addo and Gender Minister Otiko Afisa Djaba to support her.
“I want people to recognize Moesha’s right to speak up and the courage she showed by sharing such intimate details about her personal life.
As a woman and a journalist, I’m hurt and angry to see such an innocent woman condemned by the press and by many people on social media in this way.
It’s to the point that Moesha is not sure she can return to Ghana safely.
I am so surprised to see this happening in Accra, a city that has rightly got so much attention recently for being one of the most economically and politically successful capitals in Africa.
Indeed I was heartened while I was in Accra, listening to a speech by the President himself, defending the rights of the free press to report fully, accurately and fairly.”
Buduong later publicly apologised.
Moesha and Safaree
Well just today, holykey1, your Leading Community in Entertainment located a post on Instagram where Ghanaian performing artist and model Moesha Buduong was spotted hanging out with the ex of the American rapper Nicki Minaj whose name is generally known as Safaree.
The last time Moesha posted a photo of herself with a universal identity was with CNN grapple and symbol, Christiane Amanpour.
The Ghanaian performing artist was spotted with Chief International Correspondent for Cable News Network and host of CNN’S International’s meeting program, ‘Amanpour’.
The on-screen character was seen radiating with grins as she postured perfectly with the rapper in the photo.
