Actress Moesha has finally responded to the viral rumour that she has contracted the HIV/AIDS virus from a Ghana-based Nigerian businessman.
In an interview with Graphic showbiz, Moesha emphatically denied being HIV/AIDS positive.
A couple of weeks ago, social media went agog when an anonymous snapchat user accused some Ghanaian female celebrities of sleeping around to fund their lavish lifestyle.
Many names were mentioned one of them was Moesha Buduong who was accused of contracting HIV/AIDS from a Nigerian businessman in exchange for GHC300,000.
But Moesha has denied all the rumours including sleeping around with men for money.
“I want to put on record that I do not have HIV/AIDS and the said man is not someone I have ever had anything to do with sexually. I know him but it is on a purely professional level. This is a man who has helped a lot of industry players.”
“The man I know is very principled and business oriented so it is quiet unfair for anyone to tarnish his image using a deadly disease such as this, but what can you say? At the end of the day, it is the truth that matters. I don’t have any disease and I have never slept with the man in question.”
“Has the person behind this thought of how he or she would feel if the tables were turned? That I have a family, that I have a brand? What was the person’s aim? Well, if the aim was to make me look bad I’m sorry the person has failed. I am stronger than what people think,” she told Showbiz.
Moesha emphasized the fact that the rumours do not bother her.
“I am not bothered at all. Far from it. If I have learnt anything in this world, it is not allowing negative things to get to me.
“These things come with the job so it is fine. The only issue I have is the HIV/AIDS part. Like I said, I do not have anything like that and I don’t sleep around for money,” she stressed.
