Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has rendered an unqualified apology to Kwaku Vito, the owner of a bread factory in Kumasi, who he (Dumelo) mocked on social media over the weekend.
Dumelo said he called the young entrepreneur and apologised for “misjudging his inspiring and humble actions by selling on streets with his employees”.
The award-winning actor and businessman said he promotes startups and was totally out of order with the post which sought to tease the KNUST graduate.
“As a matter of fact, since January, I have 10 graduate students undergoing startup programmes under the John Dumelo Foundation. I was totally out of order on this one and I sincerely apologise to everyone especially the hard working hawkers who endure the sun just to make ends meet,” Dumelo added in an Instagram post on Monday, May 22.
Dumelo further indicated that he will “soon join him (the bread seller) on the streets to experience this selfless act for myself”.
