Actress Yvonne Nelson reveals shocking secret about aborting pregnancy for Sarkodie.



Yvonne Nelson reveals shocking secret about aborting pregnancy for Sarkodie.

Award winning Ghanaian Actress Yvonne Nelson revealed that she was impregnated by Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owosu Addo popularly known as Sarkodie after a brief relationship in 2010, but had to abort the pregnancy because the rapper had refused to accept responsibility. 

The thespian made this known on Sunday, in her newly launched book titled “I am not Yvonne Nelson” at Peduase Lodge, Ghana.

The proceedings of the alleged abortion was narrated in her new book on pages 88-95 of Chapter eight.

Yvonne wrote “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, 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,”

Yvone Nelson also disclosed that she tried to abort  the baby by ingesting some concoctions given to her by a colleague, but to her dismay, it  was ineffective because a test showed she was still carrying the child.

She revealed that because she is fatherless and did not want to bear a kid whose father had failed to take responsibility, she took the decision to abort the child.

She narrated;

The first thing that hit me when he said no to keeping the pregnancy was my own life. I had grown up without a father in my life. I had often been reminded of how I had been born by mistake.

“I was still wondering if the man whose name I bore was my father. How was I going to bring another human being into this world to live like me, someone whose father would reject him or her as Mr. Nelson had rejected me? If there was a way to spare someone else the trauma I was contending with, why would I reject that option, especially when I was not,”

She further asserted that aborting the pregnancy was “one of the most regrettable mistakes of her life, adding that if the clock of life could be rewound to her younger self, she would keep it.”
