Yvonne Nelson is definitely not in the good books of a lot of Ghanians right now because of her statement in a recent interview. Where she suggested that a lot of Ghanians are timid.
The actress revealed this in a chat with Sammy Forson and Berla Mundi of Live 91.9 FM in Accra, Ghana. Stating that Ghanians tend to let things slide even when they should “speak up”.
I think it is time Ghanaian speak up. Speaking up in Ghana is a problem, most of us do not like to talk and it saddens me that we are like that. We should learn to speak up,”
she said when she was asked why she is so passionate about the things happening in Ghana.
Yvonne Nelson caused quite a controversy after it aired as a lot of Ghanians were not happy with actress. Given the fact that a lot of Ghanian came out in support of DumsorMustStop campaign to fight against poor power supply in the country.
The outspoken actress, who is currently on a media tour to promote her movie, If tomorrow never comes. Has however chosen to keep mum in the midst of all the backlash she’s been getting from Ghanians.
This is not the first time Yvonne Nelson will be stirring up controversies with her statements. As she accused her colleagues of avoiding her #DumsorMuststop campaign because of the “juicy” deals they were getting from the government. This caused a rift between her and fellow actor and close friend, John Dumelo.
She also led the protest against the Ghana Movie Awards organizers for nominating the movie Beast of no Nation in 15 categories.
Hopefully, this latest statement won’t affect the performance of her movie because it’s never nice to have a lot of fans against you when you are trying to push a project. But Yvonne Nelson is a strong woman, so i’m sure she will weather this storm.
