Actor John Dumelo has apologized to Godfred Obeng Boateng, after he mocked him online by posting a photo of him hawking bread on his Instagram page over the weekend.
The actor shared a photo of the breadseller, Mr Boateng and wrote;
“Just saw a KNUST grad hawking in traffic…What went wrong?”
It turned out that Mr. Boateng was not an ordinary breadseller but also a hardworking entrepreneur who is the CEO of A1 Bread leading his workers by example.
“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
