There is outrage in Ghana over reasons why some women decide to be mistresses after one of the country’s celebrated model and actress Moesha Budonita Boduong made a shocking revelation in a TV interview.
Moesha Budonita Boduong told CNN in an interview that the structure of Ghana’s economy makes it difficult for young girls to become side-chicks or mistresses dating richer men mostly married men in order to survive economically.
She said in the interview that in “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,” Budonita Boduong further said in a new CNN program hosted by renowned CNN anchor, Christine Amanpour.
There have been reactions to the claim on social media.
To be fair, the economy Moesha was talking about to defend her choices is what also pushed boys into doing 419, mobile money frauds and tonaton scams. There are hardworking men and women everywhere in Ghana. But let’s not pretend like what she said isn’t happening.

I really hope this Moesha interview won’t end at a self-righteous rant but make us have honest conversations about how hard it is for women to get a job/promotion/pay raise on merit & also truthfully engage the statistics on how women have higher poverty and unemployment rates .
