Self-acclaimed celebrity, Moesha Boduong, has told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that Ghana’s economy is so bad to the extent that women are compelled to have sexual affairs with men just to survive.
“[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,” she told Amanpour in an interview.
Christiane Amanpour: Are you basically telling me that you have sex with this guy essentially to pay your rent?
Moesha Boduong: Because he can afford to take care of you, he takes care of me, my financial stuff: my apartment, my car, my rent, everything.
In return, she said: “He expects me to be loyal and just to date him only and give him sex when he wants it”.
Christiane Amanpour: And what if you say no one day, he turns up at your house and you got a headache?
Moesha Boduong: You can’t say no, you have to give him what he wants.
Christiane Amanpour: And what if you don’t want it [sex] that day?
Moesha Boduong: He’s going to think you’re cheating on him.
Christiane Amanpour: And does your man have more mistresses?
Moesha Boduong: Yes
