Controversial television host, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger, has launched a scathing attack on Moesha Boudong for her comment on CNN’s Sex & Love Around the World series suggesting that women in Ghana cannot make ends meet without sleeping with men due to harsh economic conditions.
Ghanaian actress Moesha Babiinoti Boduong told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that Ghana’s economy is in a bad state and as a result young beautiful girls are forced to date married men in order to survive.
“Ghana our economy is such that you just need someone to take care of you because you can’t make enough money as a woman here. When you want to get an apartment, in Ghana you pay two years in advance and I just started working, where will I get the money’’, she stated.
But in a quick rebuttal, Afia has written a long message to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an Instagram post to contradict the ‘’you can’t make enough money as a woman in Ghana’’ statement.
The comedienne said only lazy women depend on men to survive adding that she (Afia Schwarzenegger) is one of the many hardworking women in Ghana.
Though Afia did not mention names, it is no secret she was referring to Moesha’s statement.
‘’We have young Ghanaian women like myself doing wonderfully well, working very hard, giving our family the best, building homes for orphans, putting some street kids back to school, Farming to feed orphans without sleeping with people’s husbands…”, the post read
‘’We have young Ghanaian women that can buy themselves a house as a birthday gift, purchase a BMW X6(2016 model) as a 2015 Christmas gift. Travel anytime we want, buy ourselves the most expensive jewellery without having to sleep with anything’’.

WE CUT OUR COAT ACCORDING TO OUR FABRIC,we dont live for social media likes…we dont pretend to be who we are not in order to belong.. We study to improve us… Dating married men becos of bad economy will be the most useless statement ever made.. Hey Mo mo,what the fuck are u saying…so now our president should go and date a “married man” for our economy to be good?? @camanpour..You should have asked her if the married man is above the economy… For christ sake not every ghanaian woman is that lazy….and the young woman working on ur nails Christiana is a typical example.
