Radio presenter Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger, has added her voice to the trending backlash against Moesha Boduong for suggesting many Ghanaian ladies sleep with married men to meet their needs.
According to her, Moesha was wrong to make such a generalized claim, especially when most Ghanaian ladies are working hard to make a living.
Moesha put herself in the firing line when, in an interview with the CNN, she said she depends on a married man she’s dating to cater for her needs.
The actress went on to suggest that that is the case with many women in Ghana due to the harsh economic conditions in the country.
She said: “In Ghana our economy is in such a way that you need someone to just take care of you [because] you can’t make enough money as a woman here.
“Even when you want to get an apartment, you have to pay for two years advance and I just started working so where am I going to get that money to pay for an apartment for two years.”
Asked if she is having sex with a married man essentially because he can afford to pay her rent, Moesha answered in the affirmative, adding that “because he can afford to take care of you”.
“He takes care of me, my financial stuff, my apartment, my car, my rent – everything.”

However, Afia Schwarzenegger believes such a way of life smacks of “laziness”, adding that she would never stoop so low to bed with married men just to meet her needs.
In an Instagram post, the comedienne went in hard on Moesha, insisting she must stop living her life on social media for likes and rather start working.

Dear @camanpour Our economy in Ghana is so very bad..yes some landlords demand thousands of dollars as an advance payment of rent, But dating someones hubby is not a career,sleeping with a man in exchange for anything is prostituition… 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 husband… 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 Our economy is not good but we work our ass off.. 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. Good day. #onyamekala #cnn #cnnafrica #Christianamanpour #christianamanpour #PoliticalPolice #news#ghanaianwomenarenotlazy #CNN Mua @minalyntouch
