MAAME DOKONO ACCUSES MOESHA BODUONG OF HAVING FAKE BUTT

Celebrated actress, Grace Omaboe aka Maame Dokono says it is wrong for young and budding ladies to show their bodies in movies to be a good actress.

The veteran actress in an interview with Joy News used Moesha Boduong as an example, saying her butt is artificial.

Maame Dokono also waded into the controversial comment made by Moesha on CNN in an interview with Christiane Amanpour. She opined that Moesha don’t have to ‘sell’ her body to survive. “… instead of projecting Ghanaian women; you say that the women sleep with men to make money. It is not good and it’s not what majority of Ghanaian women do.” “The only thing that she has, that she is using to lure the men is her butt. But I think that is even artificial,” Maame Dokono said.

She added that the woman’s body is not made for the pleasures of a man. Maame Dokono chided Moesha and warned that she takes good care of her body, so she can find a husband. An 85 seconds video of actress Moesha Buduong with American ace journalist Christiane Amanpour generated an outrage in the country because the former made some statements which didn’t go down well with the public. Amanpour’s Sex and Love Around the World series shot in Ghana was widely criticized by several members of the Ghanaian society including the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection suggested that women in the country were incapable of making ends meet without soliciting for favours from successful men.

“You can’t bully me. I mean when you hear something like that about yourself and also because they [rumour mongers] involved my Mum that [and] was below the belt and it got to me but I am good now,” she said.

The actress cum video vixen initially refused to respond to the weed smoking claim but later when asked if she was pregnant, she rebutted.

“Ok so the weed allegation is not true and I am not pregnant,” she stressed.

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR ANGRY AT GHANAIANS FOR ‘ATTACKING’ MOESHA

Christiane Amanpour, CNN’s Chief International Correspondent, is angry with Ghanaians for condemning Ghanaian actress and model, Moesha Boduong, over her assertion that Ghanaian women offer sex for survival due to unfavourable economic conditions.

Ms. Boduong, in an interview with Christiane on the series ‘Sex and Love Around the World,’ stated that in Ghana, the economy is so hard that women had to sleep with married men for their livelihood.

What did Moesha really say?

“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 I get money to pay?” she told Christiane.

The interviewer, CNN’s 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.

When asked what the man expects from her in return, she told Christiane: “he expects me to be loyal and take care of him and give him sex when he wants.”

This came up in a conversation on how being a mistress is a financial decision.

Many people including the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection criticized her for painting a false picture about Ghanaian women. However, in an article written by the host Christiane Amanpour, she said she was disappointed that Ghanaians condemned Moesha for opening up to her on the show.

“So it was quite distressing to hear that one of our contributors, Moesha Boduong, has been the target of public shaming by the Ghanaian press and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection. Numerous media outlets in Ghana have taken to villainizing this young woman based on an excerpt of the conversation included in a 1 minute, 30-second video of “Sex and Love,” she wrote.

She added that she was not sure Moesha was safe and would want to return to Ghana to face more humiliation from the press and the people of Ghana.

“As a woman and a journalist, I’m hurt and angry to see such an innocent woman condemned by the press and by many people on social media in this way. It’s to the point that Moesha is not sure she can return to Ghana safely..,” she stated.

Amanpour: Women everywhere should be able to speak freely about sex and love

When we started filming the CNN Original Series “Sex & Love Around The World,” I was both curious and nervous about what we might find.

It turned out that all along my journey, no matter the country, culture or religion, I heard stories about sex and family honor being used as weapons to silence women and keep them under control. Religion, politics and tradition are often in a conspiracy against love, sexuality and free choice, especially for women.

And yet, I was also encouraged to see signs of change. Everywhere we went, women were having more of a say about sexual satisfaction, consent and connection, and young people were reshaping the idea of modern love.

This series was meant to look at sex and love from the perspective of women who have not always been heard — and frankly, who have not always been asked these types of questions. I wasn’t sure that anyone would actually agree to speak with me on camera, but I was pleasantly surprised by how vocal women were and how much they were willing to share!

I learned so much talking with dozens of everyday individuals in cities around the world, including a former porn star in Delhi who had just adopted a baby girl, a host in Tokyo who is paid to simply entertain lonely women in sexless marriages, and an actress in Accra who happened to fall in love with a married man.

So it was quite distressing to hear that one of our contributors, Moesha Boduong, has been the target of public shaming by the Ghanaian press and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection. Numerous media outlets in Ghana have taken to villainizing this young woman based on an excerpt of the conversation included in a 1 minute, 30 second video of “Sex and Love.”

As the host and the namesake of this series, I feel compelled to speak up on behalf of our contributor. I want people to recognize Moesha’s right to speak up and the courage she showed by sharing such intimate details about her personal life.

As a woman and a journalist, I’m hurt and angry to see such an innocent woman condemned by the press and by many people on social media in this way. It’s to the point that Moesha is not sure she can return to Ghana safely. I am so surprised to see this happening in Accra, a city that has rightly got so much attention recently for being one of the most economically and politically successful capitals in Africa. Indeed I was heartened while I was in Accra, listening to a speech by the President himself, defending the rights of the free press to report fully, accurately and fairly.

That is what we did, with help from the many wonderful Ghanaians who participated in this beautiful story. It was a range of women, young and mature, single, married, divorced, widowed, Christian, Muslim, Vodun, a bead seller, an OBGYN, even a market queen: Everyone acknowledged that love in Accra is complex but no one judged the choices another woman makes in the pursuit of love and happiness. And in this city that calls itself the most religious in the world, we spoke to men, too, including the Archbishop of the Action Chapel megachurch who told us “We don’t put women down in our society. We don’t do that. I’m surrounded by women. The success of my ministry, many, many ways I can equate it to the women around me.”

I urge my colleagues in the Ghanaian press to reserve judgment for the whole episode, and for the people to understand that all must be seen in context, not judged on one excerpt.

I also respectfully urge the President of Ghana and the minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection to stand up for the rights of one of their own who was simply enjoying a carefree, boisterous and mostly humorous conversation with me.

I want women all over the world to know they can and should be able to talk about matters of sex and love without fear and without shame.

EBONY’S FATHER REVEALS THAT EBONY WAS ABUSED SEVERALLY BY HER MANAGER

Nana Opoku Kwarteng, father of the late dancehall musician Ebony Reigns has revealed that his daughter was verbally abused on several occasions by her manager, Bullet of Rufftown Records.

According to him, Ebony at the latter part of her music career was not the least happy with her management due to how poorly they handled her.

There were reports that the young award winning artiste was actually bent on parting ways with the record label that discovered and made her a star days before her death.

Boss of the wealthy media organization Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah disclosed that Ebony prior to her demise asked him to pay Bullet off so she could join Zylofon Media and be free.

He disclosed this in a tweet eulogizing the artiste who lost her life through a gory accident yesterday.

Nana Appiah Mensah’s tweet said “We had a fruitful meeting and reached an Agreement just last Tuesday. “Please help me pay him for my bail out. I want to be free”. I hope you’re free now & finds absolute peace in the bosom of the almighty God. Let’s pay CRITICAL ATTENTION to our female artists”.

Ebony’s father, Nana Opoku Kwarteng in an interview on Peace FM Saturday said even though her daughter told her about the predicament she found herself, worried as he was, he couldn’t really do much to free her from the shackles of Rufftown Records because Ebony was bound to a contract.

“She told me about the abuse severally, she was not happy with her management led by Bullet, she complained bitterly about her situation. As a father who so much loved his daughter, that hurt me. I was always praying for her to get out of that situation but there was a contract she’d signed, so she needed to abide by that, she had no option. I just kept my cool about what she was going through.”

Ebony lost her life when her car was involved in a head-on collision with a bus while travelling from the Brong Ahafo region to the Greater Accra region where she was expected to travel to Belgium to perform at the Belgium edition of Ghana Meets Naija.

MOESHA BODUONG APOLOGIZES TO GHANAIAN WOMEN

Ghanaian actress Moesha Budonita Boduong has finally rendered an unqualified apology to all Ghanaians over an unfortunately statement she made during her interview with International Journalist Christiane Amanpour.

Moesha, who is speaking for the first time since parts of her interview with CNN was released, sent her apology via her Instagram page this afternoon.

“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!”

Social media has been buzzing since Tuesday evening April 10 2018, following Moesha Boduong’s interview with the CNN.

The actress’s comments in the interview have generated a huge controversy on social media. She told CNN that her motivation for dating married men, just like other women in Ghana, is because the economy is tough.

According to her, “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 I get money to pay?”

Moesha has been severely criticized for denigrating Ghanaian, especially the women and she has obviously regretted her comments.

She said to be a successful woman, one needed a man to take care of her – to provide the financial needs of the woman.

However, the actress has received widespread backlash from some Ghanaians on social media and have called her out for degrading very hardworking Ghanaian women.

This fact notwithstanding, some internet users have jumped to the defense of the actress and have called Ghanaians bashing Moesha as ‘hypocrites’.

Moesha is noted as saying, “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,”.

Her comments have generated a lot of debate on social media in Ghana with many people disagreeing with her assertion.

TRAMADOL, CODEINE KILLING THE YOUTH – Samini Tells Authorities

Dancehall act, Samini, has urged the Food and Drugs Authority to be keen on the current intake of unprescribed cough mixtures and pain killers among the youth in the country.

It is easily becoming a culture among the youth in the country to swallow pain killer pills such as Tramadol and cough related drugs with codeine to get high.

The situation has killed hundreds with others lossing their memory since they take the drugs, intended for other forms of treatment, in overdose thereby ‘altering their consciousness’.

Speaking to Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Samini indicated that drug abuse was claiming precious lives hence the need to check the act.

According to Samini, even though there have been several documentaries and educative programs to lead kids and the youth away from drugs, government needs to do more to eradicate such abuses.

“That’s a crazy thing happening right now among the youth. We have been hearing this since we were kids. This is like a clear picture. It was like a myth but now we are seeing kids buy and mix things up…” he told Andy Dosty.

“I know people who looked healthy but now look older due to the effect of the drugs. Before they could come close but they can’t anymore…”

“Don’t drink or take drugs when you know very well you are not sick. It has no benefits to your health…” he advised the youth.

The second wife of late Ghanaian musician, Daasebre Gyamenah, has opened up on her poor state of life after the demise of her husband two years ago.

Madam Amina Ibrahim, in an interview with host, Sister Sandy, on Adom TV’s ‘Badwam Ahosepe’ on Monday said she could barely have money to feed herself and her nine-year-old son.

Narrating her ordeal, she disclosed that after her husband’s death, there hasn’t been harmony between the two families [maternal and paternal] of Daasebre Gyamenah.

She told Sister Sandy that the big brother of the late highlife musician broke into her Kokomlemle home to throw her belongings out.

Madam Ibrahim continued that she now resides at her close friend’s house in New Town, a suburb in Accra, with her son because she has no place of shelter.

“I am staying at my friend’s place at New Town in a single room. I used to live with Daasebre at Kokomlemle until his death but his big brother broke into the house and threw my things out”, she said.

According to her, there were things going on in the house that if she had not taken her son out, she would have lost him…”, she said.

Asked if the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) contributed to the family after Daasebre Gyamenah passed away, she indicated that MUSIGA did their best but were reluctant to help due to the abuse of curses from her late husband’s family members.

“I don’t blame MUSIGA; because of the family disagreements, people had to back out due to curses and all that. People were throwing so many curses in the air”, she added.

She pleaded with Ghanaians to come to her aid so she can find a place of abode for her family.

“I have my belongings out and I want help so I can get somewhere to put my head…”, she said.

Madam Ibrahim said she has reported the break-in to the police.
