In the realm of entertainment, where secrets and personal lives are often shrouded behind glamorous veneers, Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has decided to strip away the facade and open up about her life in her new book, “I am not Yvonne Nelson” – a tale replete with intimate confessions, including a revelation about her secret pregnancy with renowned Ghanaian musician, Sarkodie.

A Story of Struggle and Revelation

“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… But this was no laughing matter. It was a grim piece of information that was capable of turning my world upside down.”

In the book, Yvonne Nelson narrates the complex emotions that surrounded her pregnancy, a secret chapter in her life that involved a burgeoning rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, better known as Sarkodie. At the time of the incident, Sarkodie was a struggling artist, trying to navigate his way through the foggy maze of the music industry.

The Tenuous Relationship

“I wouldn’t call what had developed between us a serious relationship… We started talking and got close. Closer.”

While their relationship was less than “serious,” Yvonne and Sarkodie shared an intimate bond. Their connection was influenced by Yvonne’s love for music, a soothing escape from the harsh realities of life, and their connection grew over time. Yet, their relationship was set against a backdrop of uncertainty. Sarkodie was not ready to shoulder the responsibilities of fatherhood.

“He was still living with his mother and was not ready to carry a burden while he was being carried by his mother,” Yvonne writes in the book.

A Painful Decision

“The first thing that hit me when he said no to keeping the pregnancy was my own life… 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?”

As Yvonne candidly reveals in her memoir, the option to abort the pregnancy was a painful decision that resonated with her own personal experiences of fatherlessness. It brought to the forefront the fears of her past, forcing her to confront the potential reality of bringing a child into a world devoid of paternal love.

A Regretful Admission

“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.”

In retrospect, Yvonne admits that aborting the baby is one of her deepest regrets. If she could go back in time and counsel her younger self, she would make a different choice. Her new book, “I am not Yvonne Nelson,” is a testament to the lessons learned from her past, opening up a candid discussion about her life that moves beyond her public persona.

The telling of Yvonne’s experiences serves as a powerful reminder of the complex realities faced by many women in the entertainment industry. It is a bold act of truth-telling and a courageous step towards the embrace of authenticity.

Her story, published by, is a must-read for all who seek a deeper understanding of the trials and tribulations behind the glitz and glamour of the entertainment world.
