Welcome to our first of our #Heart2Heart series that will examine life’s complexities. Our aim is to bring to light the many experiences that affect our lives and how we can navigate them as best as possible.

Feel free to add your input and send us questions about issues you need guidance about. Whether it be love, relationships, health, wellness or career we have got you covered.

On a recent episode of “Christiane Amanpour: Sex and Love Around the World,” a single Ghanaian woman states that the main source of survival for her and many women in her country is to be a married man’s mistress.


This is what transpired in their interview below:

The woman featured in the video is known as Moesha Boduong, a Ghanaian actress, socialite and photo model.

Boduong has received intense backlash for her statements on the show as evidenced on Twitter, with people complaining that she is glorifying lewdness and airing “dirty laundry.”

Nevertheless, the interview and subsequent comments highlight the many challenges African women face today. Many countries within the continent face harsh economic standards.  Not to mention the financial conundrums faced by black women worldwide.

Are the reasons given by Boduong valid?

Is it right for anyone to sleep with another person’s spouse to escape hardship?

How can the issues of lack of employment and scarce entrepreneurial opportunities in Africa be combated?


Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
