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, actress 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.
On what the man expects in return, Moesha said, “He expects me to be loyal and just to date him only and give him sex when he wants .You can’t say no. You have to give him what he wants otherwise he is going to think you are cheating on him.”
