The Abortion Revelation: Yvonne Nelson’s Book Sheds Light on Sarkodie’s Role
Sarkodie, a popular Ghanaian rapper, has found himself at the center of a heated debate once again after an old MTV interview resurfaced. The discussion emerged in the midst of Yvonne Nelson’s recent claim that Sarkodie impregnated her in 2010 but refused to take responsibility for the child.
In the interview, the host asked Sarkodie, “Who do you prefer, Lydia Forson or Yvonne Nelson?” Sarkodie responded, “I don’t personally know Lydia Forson, but I’ve had an encounter with Yvonne.” The host expressed surprise, asking, “Really and truly, you chose Yvonne?” Sarkodie quickly clarified, stating, “Because I know her, don’t twist it.”
The video gained traction due to Yvonne’s revelation that Sarkodie’s refusal to accept responsibility for their baby led her to make the difficult decision to have an abortion after their encounter in 2010. This account was shared in her recently launched memoir titled ‘I Am Not Yvonne Nelson’ on June 18, 2023.
Yvonne Nelson opened up about a significant event from 2010 in a chapter titled ‘Abortion,’ shedding light on the emotional journey she experienced. She described going for a pregnancy test with her friend Karen and feeling overwhelmed by the potential impact on her life. When Karen revealed the test result, Yvonne realized the gravity of the situation. She reached out to the man responsible for the pregnancy, Sarkodie, whose real name is Michael Owusu Addo, a well-known Ghanaian musician.
These revelations have reignited public interest in Sarkodie’s past and added fuel to the ongoing discussions surrounding his relationships with Lydia Forson and Yvonne Nelson.
