Actor John Dumelo has used his social media platform to make fun of a university graduate for hawking after his university education.

John Dumelo in an Instagram post said “Just saw a knust grad hawking in traffic.. what went wrong?”.

  The actor was sounded for mocking the graduate, which some believe was perhaps just to score political points and make the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) unpopular.

Among those who have taken John on, is Hiplife Artist A-Plus who thinks John’s post was absolutely unnecessary and asked John to remove the post and apologise to the gentleman.

I’m angry!!! Everyday I post my opinion. Today I’m posting my anger. John Dumelo remove this post from Instagram now!!! A bread seller is a human being. You can’t just take pictures of people and post it in your page for attention. A bread seller has right which must be respected. A bread seller is better than an armed robber!!! A bread seller is better than a drug dealer!!! It’s better for a person to hawk on the streets than to indulge in crime. I’m looking for this bread seller. John Dumelo must apologise to him. Or prepare for a legal battle!!!

Several others have expressed an anger and accused John of posting the photo with some negative intentions.

However, the bread seller identified as Godfred Obeng Boateng who is also the Chief Executive Officer of bakery company, A1 Bread, said he is not bothered at all.

“I’m really busy, working. The dog will bark but then the caravan will park, I’m just busy selling and I know I have confidence.”

Speaking in interview on Accra-based Citi FM, he said “No one should be called upon what society thinks they should do. Some people are very good with office work and others are good with the hard way. You can’t force people to do business when they don’t have the interest.”
