Her decision to have a pregnancy terminated since the person who put her in that circumstance refused to take responsibility because he had another partner is one of the revelations in her book “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson.”
According to Yvonne Nelson, the incident occurred in 2010, and the individual in question was a rapper from Tema. As detailed in chapter 8 of her memoir, which was published on Sunday, June 18, 2023, the actress tried to have the baby by ingesting some mixtures given to her by a colleague, but to her dismay, the medicine was ineffective because a pregnancy test showed she was still 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 exclaimed.
“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, musie was my getaway from all the unpleasant things life threw at me. So, I liked his talent. We started talking and got close. Closer” parts of the book read.
