Attending birthday parties in Nigeria paid me more than acting in Ghana – Yvonne Nelson



I was seeking refuge in a friend's house due to threats after leading ''Dumsor Vigil''-Yvonne Nelson

Renowned Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson has made a remarkable revelation about her adventures in Nigeria, and how they yielded more results than her acting career in Ghana.

According to Yvonne, in her book, “I am not Yvonne Nelson,” just the mere attendance to a birthday party in Nigeria paid her more than acting in Ghana.

“There were people who held parties and were prepared to pay you to attend just to enhance their status or show their class, the array of celebrities that attended someone’s party showed who they were and being present at someone’s birthday or some other celebratory event sometimes paid me more than acting in a movie in Ghana,” she wrote.

Yvonne shares that she faced some difficulties from her circle of friends. According to her, while they would pressure her to stay out till late, they would enjoy a good sleep in the morning while she had to wake up early for a shoot.

“What made life difficult was the pressure from my circle of friends, some of whom wanted to hang out with me at times I was too tired to party. I often worked deep into the night, and when I was burned out, some friends would want to hang out with me at nightclubs. Some of them would still be sleeping the following morning when I had to wash down and start shooting,” she added.
