Actress Yvonne Nelson has spoken out in response to award-winning rapper Sarkodie's remarks regarding her abortion.
According to Yvonne's book, Sarkodie abandoned her after impregnating her.
She said that the rapper's refusal to accept responsibility for her pregnancy drove her to terminate the child.
The actress stated this in her memoir, 'I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,' which will be released on Sunday, June 18, 2023.
In Her book she said:
“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. "
In response, Sarkodie stated in his latest single, 'Try Me [Raw],' released on Wednesday, that he requested Yvonne Nelson to keep the pregnancy even though he wasn't ready to be the father.
“Yes, I wasn’t ready but then I told you to keep it. So don’t make it seem like I was pushing you for abortion,” he raps in the first verse of the song.
However, on Wednesday, the actress questioned Sarkodie's use of rap to dismiss her pain.
"In my book, I narrated how you got me pregnant, How you couldn’t wait for me to get rid of it. How you DROVE me to have an abortion.
“As usual, you want to use rap to rubbish a pain a young woman felt. We both have daughters, let’s see what life throws at them. #triedyou.”
