The interview which has since gone viral on social media sees the curvy actress insisting that due to the state of the country's economy, women need men to take care of them, especially when they cannot generate enough money for themselves.

She said, ''Our economy is just in such a way that you just need someone to take care of you. You cannot make enough money as a woman here in Ghana because here in Ghana, when you want to rent an apartment you have to pay for two years and I just started working. When will I get money to get an apartment for two years?''

When asked by Amanpour if she is having sex with her boyfriend essentially to pay her rent, Moesha replied, ''Because he can afford to take care of me''.

Dear gh this is Moesha. I have been humbled by all that is going on and I have also learnt a lot in the last few days since the CNN video came out. I have had a lot of time to think and reflect and I APOLOGIZE TO ALL, ESPECIALLY MY AFRICAN SISTERS. I pray u all find it in your hearts to forgive me. It was definitely not my intention to offend any of you. I respect all the hard working women of our beloved country and accept that some of my utterances were not a reflection of what happens in most homes. GOD works in mysterious ways and everything happens because he says so#emo#8J+Pvw==## Thanks for the love, pieces of advice and criticisms. GOD bless us all!
