Sally Mann-Frimpong, a contentious analyst, has stirred a contentious discussion by calling for the cancellation of all of Ghanaian artist Sarkodie’s endorsement deals.
In reaction to claims that Sarkodie abandoned actress Yvonne Nelson by herself at the hospital during a delicate period, Mann made the call.
Mann stated her disdain of Sarkodie’s alleged activities during a Power FM interview.
“You left someone’s daughter at the hospital to go through an abortion procedure in your name? What was he thinking?” She queried.
The entertainment expert maintained that he should take responsibility for his conduct and claimed that his acts prevented him from being anyone’s idol or role model.
“I am advocating that all endorsement deals Sarkodie have should be stripped off and the reason I am doing that is because he left Yvonne Nelson to her fate on that very day at the hospital. Yvonne was bleeding when they got to the hospital for the abortion and he left her. This alone means he is not fit to be an idol for anybody,” she submitted.
Sally Mann questioned what may have transpired if Nelson’s condition had gotten worse or if she had encountered issues to further support her point.
“What if Yvonne Nelson died? Morally he is not fit to be a role model to anyone. Someone will say nobody put a gun to Yvonne’s head. But sometimes when a woman gets pregnant and her parents reject it and her man accepts it, it gives her that hope that he will take care of her. Sarkodie is not fit to be called a celebrity. He should apologize to Yvonne Nelson. He should apologize for abandoning her at the hospital,” she fumed.
Mann further compared the episode to others involving international stars like Chris Brown, Tiger Woods, and T.I.
She said that in several situations, endorsement deals had been terminated because of the individuals’ contentious behavior or legal problems.
“When Chris Brown beat Rihanna, he was stripped of all his endorsement deals. Tiger Woods went through the same. T.I, was stripped off his endorsement deals for drug possession,” she stated.
Sally Mann’s remarks follow the publication of Yvonne Nelson’s captivating memoir, I AM NOT YVONNE NELSON, in which the actress said that although her relationship with Sarkodie resulted in pregnancy, he refused to accept responsibility for it and asked her to terminate the child.
She wrote, “On an ordinary day, I would have laughed out loud and that would trigger a string of jolly conversations and jokes. But this was no laughing matter. It was a grim piece of information that was capable of turning my world upside down. I wasn’t the only one responsible for the situation, so I called the man whose potent seed had germinated in me. His name is Michael Owusu Addo, a renowned Ghanaian musician who is better known as Sarkodie.“
The book sheds light on the frequently hidden facts of the celebrity industry while also providing a glimpse into the author’s personal victories and struggles throughout her life.
Nelson uses her book as a potent platform to share her experiences with readers, giving them a close-up view of her journey and the lessons she has discovered along the way.
Her connection with Sarkodie and how he left her at the abortion clinic by herself have, however, become the most talked-about aspects of the book since its publication.
