Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has recently shared a captivating revelation about her experiences in Nigeria, highlighting how they brought her greater success than her acting career in Ghana.
In her memoir, “I am not Yvonne Nelson,” she unveiled that a simple act of attending a birthday party in Nigeria resulted in a more substantial financial gain than her work as an actress in Ghana.
“There were people who held parties and were prepared to pay you to attend just to enhance their status or show their class, the array of celebrities that attended someone’s party showed who they were and being present at someone’s birthday or some other celebratory event sometimes paid me more than acting in a movie in Ghana,” she wrote.
Yvonne also revealed some of the problems she encountered with her circle of friends.
According to her, while they would pressure her to stay out till late, they would enjoy a good sleep in the morning while she had to wake up early for a shoot.
“What made life difficult was the pressure from my circle of friends, some of whom wanted to hang out with me at times I was too tired to party.
I often worked deep into the night, and when I was burned out, some friends would want to hang out with me at nightclubs. Some of them would still be sleeping the following morning when I had to wash down and start shooting,” she added.
