Yvonne Nelson, A Diva To Emulate – Producer David Owusu
In the early stages of my movie-making career as an executive producer more than a decade ago, one of the very first top movie stars I was opportune to work with was and is the ever gorgeous, business-minded, and straightforward Yvonne Nelson.
Initially, my first impression of her personality was the bluntly
rude and difficult to handle type but after our first encounter on the movie Deadly Obsession, which featured prominent actor Jim Ike, Nikki Samonas, the late Rev. Eddie Quophie amongst others, I then realized the sexy legged screen goddess was just fantastic and the best one can boast of in the industry.
I went on to cast her in my second movie WHO AM I which became a hit. Yvonne’s Tears, trials, and Pain continued.
Over the years, Yvonne Nelson has moved on from one success story to another.
Challenges such as facing a ban by the leadership in the movie industry in Ghana in 2010 and the tag on bleaching did not deter the actress-turned-entrepreneur from moving to greater heights.
By dint of hard work and perseverance, Yvonne Nelson, YN as I call her started producing her own movies.
Heels and sneakers, area code, fix us and many more are all top-notch movies produced by the sexy diva. Awards upon awards from different angles, appearing on BBC Africa, and having quite a number of movies on Netflix are some of the many achievements of the Venus Films discovery actress.
Most enviable among all her achievements are the establishment of @YNislands, a serene resort and a place to relax, and a first-class school by all standards located in East Legon Hills.
Knowing Yvonne Nelson for over a decade now, one thing I cherish most about her is the zeal to always stand for the less privileged in society.
I would not be surprised to see Yvonne Nelson working at the high office in the UN someday on humanitarian grounds and support.
