Yvonne Nelson launches her “I’m Not Yvonne Nelson” book and notes that she had an abortion of the baby who would have been rapper Sarkodie’s first child.
She reveals the Ghanaian musician was not ready to carry the responsibility of a father because he was then under the care of his mother.
The Ghanaian filmmaker notes that she got to know of her pregnancy for Sarkodie in 2010 following a test at a health facility.
“From the health facility, I went back to my friend’s hostel. As had happened with my Nov-Dec exams after school, I hoped and prayed that I would be lucky with this second attempt. The pain, again, was intense and I bled profusely. I felt worse because Sarkodie left me to my fate in the most difficult period. He did not call to check up on me or find out how the procedure had had gone,” she writes in the Book.
“Having an abortion is 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. But the benefit of hindsight is sometimes not useful because the lessons learned cannot be applied retrospectively,” she adds.
Yvonne Nelson reveals she wouldn’t call what had developed between her and Sarkodie a relationship, because she is someone who gravitates toward talents in the music industry.
These are information captured in Chapter 8 of the much-talked about book.
