Give Moesha Boduong a break – Family
The family of Ghanaian socialite Moesha Boduong has finally broken their silence on her current state of mind.
The actress, who came under a barrage of insults in 2018 for telling CNN that Ghanaian women depend on married men for survival because of the harsh economic condition, said she had given her life to Christ.
She visited the Revelation Church International, where she responded to the altar call.
Subsequently, the actress was seen in a video walking barefooted and preaching the gospel of Christ.
She revealed she did drugs, attempted suicide, and sold her properties to help the poor because she acquired them through promiscuity.
After the video, some social media users raised questions about her mental state.
In an audio circulating on social media, the personal assistant of the actress, Samuel Nelson, is heard in a conversation with actress Salma Mumin discussing how Moesha’s bad acts had caught up with her.
“She deserves everything she is going through for the bad and wicked things she has done to me and any other person,” Nelson said.
In a sharp response to the audio and all other comments passed on Moesha’s mental state, the family said:
“Everybody has a past, a present, and a future. We have all lived lives that depending on the ‘friends’ or ‘people’ around you, can positively or negatively influence your life. Some have lived high lives, and others have lived practical lives.
“We believe Moesha has the right to a ‘new beginning in Christ’ and a chance to make right her life. We are pleading with all persons to
please allow her time from gossip, bad-mouthing, social media bickering, and negative talking to find herself. We support the decision she has taken and will support her in any positive way to help her find her real self”.
“No persons have been authorized to solicit funds to support her or on behalf of the family. However, the family is extremely grateful to everyone who reached out genuinely to help.”
They also denied knowing Moesha’s assistant, Samuel Nelson and asked the media to respect her privacy.
“We further note with disappointment an audio recording circulating on social media purported to be her brother. We condemn the contents of the recording and state categorically that it is not her brother. The supposed Nelson is not a known relative of the family.”
“Let’s let Moesha ‘heal’ peacefully, and let’s give her space from all networks to enable a new, positively fulfilling, and effective beginning for her. Everybody deserves some privacy at one time or the other in life, and this is the least we can offer Moesha now,” it added.
