In her recent published book “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson”, Yvonne Nelson decided to terminate her pregnancy because the person who put her in that situation wasn’t ready to take the responsibility.
The actress and movie producer stated in chapter 8 of her book which was published on June 18th, 2023, that the incident occurred in 2010, and the person who put her in that situation was a rapper from Tema.
Yvonne Nelson tried to terminate the baby by ingesting some mixtures given to her by a colleague, but the medicine couldn’t work because the test still proved she was carrying the child.
“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 added.
“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”.
“I wouldn’t call what had developed between us a serious relationship. I gravitated toward people in the music industry. For the longest time in my life, music was my getaway from all the unpleasant things life threw at me. So, I liked his talent. We started talking and got close. Closer”.
She added that she finally succeeded in terminating the pregnancy, but also said “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.”
