“Just saw a KNUST grad hawking on the street, what went wrong ?
His post generated a lot of backlash for him after he posted it on instagram and the actor has said sorry to Godfred Obeng Boateng.
Mr. Dumelo in an instagram post stated that he personally called the alumnus to apologize to him.
On the photo-sharing app, he wrote;
“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”
