Comedian DKB has expressed his resentment towards CNN’s International Correspondent, Christiane Amanpour for jumping to the defence of controversial actress Moesha Buduong.

Moesha Buduong in an interview with Christiane Amanpour on the series ‘Sex and Love Around the World’ said the economy in Ghana is so hard that women have to sleep with married men for their livelihood.

This statement didn’t go down well with Ghanaians stirring public anger against the actress with many personalities such as the Gender Minister condemning it.

Christiane Amanpour who wasn’t so pleased with the backlash towards the actress expressed her anger cautioning Ghanaians to desist from shaming Moesha over her candid views about her love life.

According to her, women everywhere should be able to speak freely about sex and love and was quite distressing for her to hear that Moesha has been the target of public shaming by the Ghanaian press and the Gender Ministry.

She believes rather than condemning and criticizing her, the actress should be acknowledged for the courage she showed by sharing very ‘sensitive’ areas of her love life with the rest of the world.

DKB responding to Amanpour’s statement said he is highly disappointed in the journalist for calling Moesha a courageous person for opening up about her love life to the world.

He questioned if Amanpour would have had the guts to call Moesha a courageous person if she had slept with her husband.

Venting his anger towards Amanpour, DKB said “I’m very disappointed in you for calling somebody who sleeps with married men courageous. Christiane Amanpour, if it had been your husband that Moesha was sleeping with, will you call Moesha courageous? Adultery is frowned upon by the law in Ghana and America so why will you call somebody who sleeps with people’s husbands courageous. Really?”.

The comedian teasingly indicated that no one in Ghana has the time to attack Moesha when there are other trivial issues to talk about in the country.

“Who has time to attack Moesha really? We have laws in this country, we are guarded by laws. This is not a jungle, the image you have been painting of us, poor people living with houseflies on their nose, we are not in a jungle. We have laws so nobody will attack Moesha, for what? Who will attack Moesha when Obinim is busy speaking Chinese for us to hear”, he said.
