Actor John Dumelo is still recovering from the backlash social media heaped on him after he shared a photo of a bread seller on his instagram account.
A Twitter user – @Prince_Akowuah, asked Dumelo on the micro blogging site;
“@JohnDumelo1 where is your KNUST certificate?”
@johndumelo1 where is your KNUST certificate?

After so much social media backlash, actor John Dumelo apologized to the KNUST graduate Kweku Vito aka Godfred who was helping his employees sell bread from his company A1 Bread.
The actor took to his social media and shared;
“I just had an extremely gracious phone 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”
Social Commentator, A Plus who led the crusade that forced John Dumelo to delete his initial post and then apologize reacting to the new development wrote;
“Dear John Dumelo fans, I thought you guys said I can’t battle Dumelo. I told you guys that I’ll force your man to delete the post and apologise. And yes!!! He did both. I’m going to repeat what you guys hate to hear. I’m the most powerful person on social media in this country. You can have all the following but when I speak. Yeah…. That’s news. That is why even though you don’t like me, you still follow me like a shepherd and his sheep (You can insult me #DoesIcare )
My brother John Dumelo, you have earned my respect. It takes a brave man to realise his mistake and apologise. I don’t think that we should go on and on even after you have apologised.
Now we can bring an end to this paanoo issue“
