Actress Moesha Boduong has apologised to women in Africa following a wave of criticisms against her on social media after an interview she granted CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in which she said Ghana’s economy is so bad to the extent that women are compelled to have sexual affairs with men just to survive.

“I have had a lot of time to think and reflect and I apologise to all, especially my African sisters. I pray you all find it in your hearts to forgive me,” she said in an Instagram post on Friday, 13 April 2018.

Moesha further indicated that she has respect for “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”.

Dear gh 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 APOLOGIZE TO ALL, ESPECIALLY MY AFRICAN SISTERS. I pray u 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!

The interview was part of CNN’s TV programme "Sex & Love Around the World".

Moesha told the host: “[In] Ghana, our economy is in such a way that you just need someone to take care of you.

“You can’t make enough money as a woman here because even if you want to get an apartment, in Ghana you pay two years in advance and I just started working, where will I get money to pay for an apartment for two years”.

A section of Ghanaians subsequently condemned her over her comment which seems to suggest that Ghanaian women’s survival in life is hinged on sexual favours to men.
