In a memoir launch on Sunday 18th June 2023 by Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson graced by celebrated personalities including but not limited to politicians and businessmen from John Dumelo, Adjetey Anang to Mustapha Abdul-Hamid and Becca, the actress through her book opened the doorway into her life, giving fans and readers alike insight into what the lives of celebrities are really like.
In a surprising turn of events, the actress makes some shocking revelations in her book which has led to outbursts and mixed reactions on social media which might last a while in light of the personality involved.
In the 8th Chapter of her book, Yvonne Nelson reveals that Ghanaian rapper and “Landlord” as he has come to be known by many shares with her the other half of a regrettable past involving the termination of a pregnancy which the rapper refused to take responsibility for.
In this revelation, the actress shares her decision to terminate a pregnancy because the man responsible refused to take responsibility on the basis of a preexisting relationship with another woman. She narrates that this incident takes place somewhere in 2010 when the now Landlord, Sarkodie is still struggling to find his feet in the music industry while still having very bright prospects.
“I had gone for a pregnancy test to confirm what becomes the most obvious conclusion for a sexually active young woman who misses her monthly flow. I was in the company of Karen. And when the test result was ready, I wasn’t strong enough to open it. She did and declared the verdict. “Charlie, it dey there!” she exclaimed.
It goes on to say, “On an ordinary day, I would have laughed out loud and that would trigger a string of jolly conversations and jokes. But this was no laughing matter. It was a grim piece of information that was capable of turning my world upside down. I wasn’t the only one responsible for the situation, so I called the man whose potent seed had germinated in me. His name is Michael Owusu Addo, a renowned Ghanaian musician who is better known as Sarkodie.
“Sarkodie was a budding musician with the potential to become one of the biggest artists in Ghana and beyond. At the time, however, the future looked uncertain, and his way through the maze of life still appeared too foggy to predict. Success was not guaranteed. He was still living with his mother and was not ready to carry a burden while he was being carried by his mother,” she writes.
The actress however later admits in her book that her relationship with the rapper was nothing serious and she had actually gotten into a relationship with him through her gravitating towards people within the music industry especially because the artform had become an escape for her during trying times in her life.
She also admits thinking back on her decision and doing the exact opposite if similar situation were to befall her today. “One of the most regrettable mistakes in my life. If the clock of life could be rewound to my younger self, I would keep it.”
