Multimedia journalist and editor of Adom FM, Samuel Nii Narku Dowuona, has, in a six-point write-up, responded to claims made by Cable News Network (CNN) journalist, Christiana Amanpour’s defense of Moesha Budoung.
Amanpour, in an attempt to defend her interviewee, made a number of claims considered by the celebrated journalist to be non-factual, forcing him to provide a measured response that seeks to set the facts straight.
Below is Mr. Dowuona’s full response to Amanpour:
- Who told Amanpour Moesha is being denied the right to speak? She can speak any day. But others are also exercising their right to speak. She enjoyed a boisterous conversation with the super clever Amanpour, who knew exactly what she was driving at, but I wonder if Moesha was at the same level of intelligence with Amanpour.
2. Did Amanpour say Moesha was an INNOCENT woman? Please someone tell Amanpour she should not insult Moesha and insult us, otherwise we shall retaliate. I am sure Amanpour has seen what our retaliation looks and sound like. She should not try us with this naive talk.
3. Did Amanpour not hear from her own excerpt that Moesha blamed her sexual escapades on the Ghanaian economy and also said it goes for all women? How does Amanpour explain the statement “In Ghana, the economy is such that if you are a woman you can’t make enough money…”
Amanpour expected Ghanaians, and the government to stand by and not correct that evil and stupid impression created by a self-acclaimed prostitute, gold digger and fornicator?
Let Amanpour tell us; how would the rest of the world look at our women following Moesha’s stupid statement?
Our women, government and media should just sit by and watch Moesha and CNN create this totally wrong impression about our women? Please Amanpour, we all know you are not stupid so don’t talk like one.
Amanpour has lots of people like Moesha where she lives. Do they also blame the economy for their immorality?
4. Amanpour is too clever not to know that loads of women in Ghana are breaking their backs to make ends meet and to even provide for others. I can give you an unending list. Just recently, MasterCard put out a report which said 46% of businesses in Ghana are owned by women and it the highest in the world. So who is this lazy spoilt brat of a girl, who wants to live a Luxurious life on OPM (other people’s money), telling the world that her whorish and vain lifestyle is because of the Ghanaian economy and it represents all women in Ghana? Those businesses have a right to speak, don’t they?
5. Let Amanpour know that the Archbishop was right; we don’t put women down in Ghana. And he is right to attribute his success to women. Those women are obviously not like Moesha. They do not lazy about and offer their bodies to married men to fund the vain lifestyles. Stupid and untrue statements like that of Moesha are what make women feel worthless.
6. In any case, did Amanpour say Moesha does not feel safe to return to Ghana? That is the most disingenuous, pretentious, deceptive and highest order of hysteria from a supposed clever woman trying to win cheap sympathy for her pet who has pooped on everyone at the party. Please, Amanpour, you are smarter than that.
Amanpour is clever and we admire her for that. But as for this piece in defense of Moesha, it it porous and flawed big right. She should stop making a bad case worse. We have seen enough. We may not even want to see the full interview.
