When I read this report first, I must admit that it brought me great pleasure to know that some of our African celebrities still have their brains intact. I was just on my Facebook page talking about how ignorant Africans can be, copying everything the white man does.
It’s clear that Ghana’s leading actress and movie producer, Yvonne Nelson, is backing me.
Yvonne Nelson obviously also wants to have nothing to do with her former beau anytime soon.
The gorgeous Ghanaian screen-goddess was nominated by Iyanya to take part in the #IceBucketChallenge but it seemed that didn’t go well with her, she went on twitter to send out a post that has the appearance of utter dissatisfaction.
’Say sh*t and I’ll block you if I see it. SIMPLE! You live in America and think Africa is America? People in my country don’t have potable water to drink and you display your ignorance on my post? No one asked you to follow or check my page… Ilovemyafrica! Ourpartoftheworld,’ she tweeted.
It would be recalled that Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy, the first celebrity in this part of the world, had nominated Iyanya who extended the honour to his former love interest.
The challenge began as a charitable initiative with financial donations for victims of a medical condition know as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
We’ll keep you informed, we really would like to know if Yvonne really sees the #IceBucketChallenge as a waste of time or because her nomination was done by Iyanya who reportedly ditched her not too long ago.
