Socialite Moesha Boduong claims the name-calling she endured after her CNN interview was “a blessing.”
In April 2018, she was at the receiving end of severe criticism after she suggested in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that young women in Ghana sleep with married men to take care of themselves.
“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,” stated Boduong.
“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?”
Boduong claims the publicity that followed the interview has led to new contacts, and also opened new avenues to better her career and life.
“The whole CNN thing was a blessing. Especially with Ghanaians lambasting me, it went everywhere so yes it has been a blessing. Because of that, CNN had to come. I didn’t even have their contact but after the whole thing that went viral, they called me back and we have a very good relationship now. So, I’m looking at doing so many things with CNN soon and I’m doing something with them. That’s also in the pipeline and will come out soon thanks to my lovely Ghanaians, I love them so much.”
