Fred Nuamah, the CEO of Ghana Movies Awards has added his voice to the ongoing Yvonne Nelson saga. He has expressed not only his disappointment to the fact that Yvonne Nelson decided to apologise at this last hour, but also the fact that Yvonne Nelson is seriously doing far more better for herself than the time she was fully working as an actress and would probably let all these go down the drain in her desperation to come back to an industry which has treated her unfairly.

Fred mentioned that the way Yvonne Nelson has been treatment is absolutely disgusting. “For a young talented girl to be fairly treated like this is not only degrading but also inhuman. If a child wrongs the father, she is under an obligation to apologise and the father is also under a corresponding duty to accept this apology instantly and forgive the child” he said.

He continued “Yvonne Nelson did what is expected from a good child. She apologised to Abdul Salam at the infant stage of the whole controversy, Yvonne further mobilised her industry friends including Majid Michel and her manager to help apologise to Salam which the latter refused to accept. Is it therefore not Ironic that an apology has been accepted and the girl is said to have been forgiven at this late hour? ”

Fred considers it disheartening that those in charge of the ban requested Yvonne Nelson go and publicly apologise for a crime which she allegedly committed in what can be termed as a private place. “If she disrespecting Abdul Salam on a movie set was the core reason of the whole confusion, why ask her to go and apologise via TV, radio or any other form of media?”

What baffles the mind of the Founder of Ghana Movie Awards even more is the rationale behind Yvonne Nelson’s late hour apology and its acceptance after enduring about 9 months of substantial loss of income, insults and disrespect.

“If she has been able to swallow 9 months of disrespect and dirty industry politics which nearly killed her career, talent and dignity, why can’t she bear 3 months…? Remember, Yvonne is one of the top 3 Actresses in the country. This achievement is enough to make anyone proud so to throw all that away in desperation when you have suffered for 9 months with only 3 months to go is questionable”.

He also acknowledged and commended Yvonne Nelson for how well she has been able to do for herself during this bad time.

“Yvonne has done so much for herself in the last 9 months that she probably had not been able to do for all the years she worked as an actress. The girl has successfully launched her Glaucoma foundation which is doing great in helping our society. She has also bought a new top of the range car and has launched her own weave/wig collection” he added.



Further intimating, he said: “Yvonne Nelson should have considered her own production, a TV show or something she can do without having her talent being oppressed for any little misconduct. She should not be desperate to be in the movie industry when she is already doing a lot for herself. Her desperation to come back should not make her accept future wrong treatments that may come her way without saying anything as a result of fear of being banned. We have passed the culture of silence, fear and oppression”

As radical as this may sound, Fred says the best thing for Yvonne Nelson to do is go through the 3 months of the ban and then after that, ban herself. “If I were Yvonne, what I would have done is serve the 12 months of my ban and then after that ban myself. I mean, not work for any of those people” he said.
