Actress Moesha Boduong has stirred controversy on social media after admitting to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that her desire to date a married man is due to the economic challenges in the country.
According to her, “In Ghana, our economy is such in a way that you just need someone to take care of you and a single person you can’t make enough money as a woman here,” Moesha said in the interview for the programme, "Sex & Love Around the World" which airs on Saturdays on CNN.

“Because even when you want to get an apartment, in Ghana you pay two years in advance and I just started working; where will I get money to pay for an apartment for two years?” she added/
A visibly surprised Christiane Amanpour further asked, “Are you basically telling me that you are having sex with this guy essentially to pay your rent?”
This is what Moesha had to say, “Because he can afford to take care of you; he takes care of me. My financial stuff, my apartment, my car, my rent, everything.”
Following the interview, social media has been awash with comments.
