“I AM ALSO DISAPPOINTED IN YOU” – Yvonne Nelson Replies Gabby Otchere-Darko

Actress and Filmmaker Yvonne Nelson has reacted to what she describes as “disappointing comments” by Politician and Lawyer, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko.

Gabby Otchere-Darko who is a very influential member of the ruling New Patriotic PartyNPP) party and cousin of President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo had said in a social media post that the Ghanaian movie industry is being unproductive. According to Gabby, he took time to watch 10 random Ghanaian movies and he was very disappointed after watching.

He wrote: “I took my time to watch randomly ten Ghanaian movies and never felt so disappointed. It brought home to me one major deficiency in our development. The apparent lack of deliberate consciousness on the part of the creative industry in the development conversation.

The presence of the creative industry appears at best peripheral in Ghana’s development narrative. Our movies, our songs, our arts, by and large, do not impactfully plug into a greater development agenda.

Hollywood, for the best part of a century, has been deliberately used by America to push successfully American cultural “supremacy” agenda; it has been used as an effective instrument of military or economic indoctrination.

But, what has been the underlying consciousness behind our creative industry, if any? What role, for instance, can actors in the creative industry play to define and realize this whole important concept of moving Ghana Beyond Aid? We must elevate consciousness in Ghana if we are serious about winning”.

However, actress Yvonne Nelson didn’t take kindly to the comment and she has reacted with a couple of tweets.

She had this reply: “Kumawood has created jobs for so many people! It has Put smiles on a lot of faces in our country! Your judgement is just so low! Disappointing!”

She was not done, she ‘kicked’ him more:

“Hello @GabbyDarko is your interview on peacefm online real?? If it is I’m also disappointed! A few of us are pushing really hard for this industry! Since our leaders have also totally abandoned the industry, we contribute too, just like nurses,doctors..etc”

She went on: “How do you even compare Hollywood to our industry! It’s like comparing our economy to theirs! Leadership!!!!! We need structures in place and some encouragement not this! What do we do when TV networks get cheaper content from India and Latin America?” she schooled Gabby.

“IF YOU TALK ABOUT MY BABY, I WILL COME FOR YOU” – Yvonne Nelson

Ghanaian actress and movie producer Yvonne Nelson has vowed she will go all out to protect her baby daughter, Ryn, from people who say unpleasant things about her.

The actress survived a lot of controversy for getting pregnant for her UK photographer boyfriend, Jamie Roberts, and eventually giving birth to a baby girl.

Many social media commentators and some mainstream media questioned the rationale behind her decision to give birth before getting married and why choosing her photographer boyfriend.

Others simply passed a straight verdict on her decision, describing it as “immoral”.

But hanging out with the 2018 Ghana’s Most Beautiful (GMB) contestants on Tuesday, the award-winning actress indicated that she is personally unfazed about news stories that put her in a bad light.

She stated, however, that she will not take it lightly with people who try to involve her daughter in those stories.

“But I don’t really care about negative stories. I think I’m used to it. People just want to sell their newspapers and whatever, so you just leave them but if you talk about my baby, I will come for you.”

She narrated an instance where she had taken on someone – whose identity she failed to disclose – for making some “unpleasant” commentary about her baby.

“Like the recent one that happened: I don’t want to mention his name but he was talking about the baby,” she told the ladies.

“He kept making very weird comments about her and the last one I just felt it was too much so my lawyer wrote to him and he retracted and apologized.”

She explained that the name of her daughter is a combination of the initials of her boyfriend and her own names – Robert and Yvonne Nelson (RYN) – and that she wants her daughter to have her parents’ names with her wherever she goes.

She used the opportunity to advise the ladies who are vying for the GMB 2018 cash, car and crown never to give up on their pursuits in life even if they fail the first time.

The 10 ladies, who were unveiled Sunday, September 16 at Takoradi,were ushered into the GMB Reality House on Monday and are poised for action.
