Citi FM journalist, Nana Ama Agyemang Asante has sparked a debate on Twitter after questioning the propriety of actor John Dumelo visiting female students of the University of Ghana (UG) in their hostels on Valentines Day.

"You mean no one on your team told you not to do this because it is predatory and gross?," Nana Ama questioned in response to a video of Dumelo interacting with some female students in their rooms on the University of Ghana campus on Valentine's day.

Later on Sunday, a female fan appealed to the actor to visit her place of employment but the actor replied: "I will be willing to hug you too...unfortunately some people say hugging single ladies is predatory and gross. I shock".

Nana Ama who describes herself in her Twitter biography as a feminist later clarified the earlier comment in separate tweets.

She said: "I’m astonished by the number of men saying this in response to my tweet about a man walking into the rooms of women students to hug them. Do you people know you can be nice to women without being creepy? As in, not grabby, and respectful of women’s personal spaces and bodies?

"Some of you were replied to that John Dumelo video with ”ko nie” and such because you know what it means for a man to access all-women spaces so I know you understand it was predatory but admitting it would mean admitting that you prey on women too. Go and deal with your sins".
