Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has announced to the general public that no top footballer sponsored or footed the bill of two movie productions she was recently involved in.
She said it had come to her notice that certain individuals were spreading rumours that a top footballer sponsored the production cost of her movies.
Yvonne said it was true she had produced two movies titled ‘The Price’ and ‘Single & Married’ last year and this year respectively but denied they were funded by a footballer.
Yvonne said ‘The Price’ was the first to be shot last year and it was a partnership production between her YN Productions and an entertainment company called Media GH.
The production of ‘Single & Married’, a copyright property of Media GH, wrapped up this year with top actors Chris Attoh, Nadia Buari, Kofi Adjorlolo, Eddie Watson, Efya, Tiffany and Anita Erskine starring in it.
Yvonne said she was now the general manager of Media GH which dealt in both music and movie productions.She handles the movie production aspect of the company besides her role as the general manager. She stated that the public should ignore the footballer rumour circulating because it was not true. She described it as one of the usual machinations of people who sought to pull her down by using media platforms and foul means.
The tall actress has also denied rumours that she won a mouth-watering contract from telecommunication giant, Vodafone.
Yvonne has shot about 10 movies within a space of a year. The year she was slapped with the so-called controversial ban alone, she shot five movies. Two of those movies were by Abdul Salam’s Venus Films. Among some of her latest movies are ‘Trapped In The Game’, ‘Mistress’, ‘Wanna Be,’ ‘The Price’, ‘Single & Married’, and others she shot in Nigeria.
Less than two weeks ago, she returned from Nigeria where she had been shooting with Tonto Dikeh and other top actors. Currently, she is on a movie set in Ghana.
Even though Yvonne said she did not like blowing her own trumpet, she said she had been busy throughout with productions and running her YN fashion shop as well as her glaucoma foundation. She has opened a new fashion shop around the Central University area and waiting to officially launch it soon.
Yvonne Nelson added that any negative impression being created that her career was in shambles was not the true reflection of what was currently happening on the ground.She concluded by thanking the public for its unwavering support for her career via many ways.
