Popular Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has apologised to Godfred Obeng Boateng, the graduate baker he mocked when he spotted him selling bread on the street last weekend.
Dumelo has been at the receiving end of public backlash having gone on social media to make fun of the owner of A1 Bakery.
“Just saw a knust grad hawking in traffic… what went wrong?” was Dumelo’s post which stirred controversy over the weekend. Having realised he got it all wrong, the actor took to his Instagram page to apologise to his fans and the CEO of the bakery.
“I just had an extremely gracious conversation on fone with Kwaku Vito aka Godfred the hawker and apologised to him for misjudging his inspiring actions by selling on the streets with his employees. I must say however that this is all not like me especially as I have been promoting startups and young entrepreneurs. As a matter of fact, since Janaury, I’ve had 10 graduate students under the John Dumelo Foundation.
“I was totally out of order on this one and I sincerely apologise to everyone especially the hardworking hawkers who endure the sun just to make ends meet,” Dumelo stated.
