Our attention has been drawn to a publication with the headline; ‘ I have not blacklisted the media – Yvonne Nelson’ and in this article, Yvonne Nelson revealed to a section of the media she met on her arrival at Kotoka International Airport that she hasn’t blacklisted the media but rather, sometimes, the media does not behave professionally.
In our quest to find out more from one of Ghana’s top journalists and the Head of Ghana Movie Writers Association, he revealed to GhanaSuperstars.Com that Yvonne Nelson does not have any moral authority to blacklist any Ghanaian media house or person; rather the media has decided to sideline her due to her own rude attitude and undisciplined propensities.
‘We the media are more powerful than any celebrity or Yvonne Nelson and that, Yvonne can never blacklist the media but rather the media has blacklisted her. Some of us who write solely as movie writers in Ghana decided to blacklist her because of her indisciplined acts and the fact that she doesn’t respect the media. She forgets that it is the same media that made her and the same media can ‘humble’ her to where she started,’ he posited.
He cleared the air about Yvonne Nelson who complained about Ghanaian media men not contacting her before they put any publication out there.
‘That statement is false. Yvonne Nelson has a very bad attitude amongst all the female stars we have in Ghana. She wouldn’t even pick your call if you call or reply a text if you SMS her to reveal your identity as a journalist. She might end up insulting you if you try, hence we blacklisted her.’
‘As far as I am concerned, on record, Yvonne Nelson is having problems with majority of Ghanaian Art Writers, Journalists, Media Houses, etc. It will be in her best interest if she understands the work she’s doing, her status and receive media people with warm arms in order for her to enjoy good publicity,’ he advised.
Should Yvonne Nelson eat humble pie and apologize for her recent comments? Do you think Yvonne will apologize or retract her assertions? Or she was right in her own sense?
