John Dumelo Apologizes To KNUST Graduate Who Sells Bread; Says He Will Join Him To Sell On The Streets

Actor John Dumelo has finally apologized to Godfred Obeng Boateng, the KNUST graduate who sells bread on the streets.

The award winning actor was heavily criticized after he posted on Instagram on Saturday, 18th May, 2017, a picture of a KNUST graduate hawking on the streets with the caption, "Just saw a KNUST grad hawking in traffic…What went wrong?"

His post did not go down well with some of his followers and a section of the public. After coming under immense pressure, John deleted the post and offered an apology through the same medium on Monday 22nd May, 2017.

Read his apology below:


I just had an extremely gracious fone conversation with Kweku Vito aka Godfred the hawker and apologized to him for misjudging his inspiring and humble actions by selling on streets with his employees. I must say however, that this is not at all like me especially as I have been promoting start ups and young entrepreneurs. As a matter of fact, since January , Ive have 10 graduate students undergoing start up programs under the John dumelo Foundation. I was totally out of order on this one and I sincerely apologize to everyone especially the hard working hawkers who endure the sun just to make ends meet. I will soon join him on the streets to experience this selfless act for myself. Very inspiring. #melomoment #entrepreneur #togetherness #A1bread
