Yvonne Nelson’s beef with Jackie Appiah earns her 1 year ban in Nigeria

Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson is starting the year on a bad note after reports indicate that she has been slapped with a one-year ban by Nigerian film producers.

This ban, according to Nigeriafilms.com, was necessitated by Yvonne’s feud over the granting of some waivers to fellow Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah, on a production set in Nigeria.

There have been remours of a growing tension between the two actresses with Yvonne Nelson constantly demanding the same or better treatment from directors and producers meted out to Jackie Appiah.

Yvonne Nelson is reported to have ranted and walked off a set after she heard of Jackie’s waiver.

A communiqué issued by the Nigerian producers on the ban stated that: “Any director or producer who features her (Yvonne Nelson) in his or her movie would be blacklisted and any movie she does in Nollywood, would not be sold in Ghana.”

The Nigerian producers also indicated that, they want to bring sanity to the industry and also to send a powerful message to others who may think that they can impose their will and rubbish the discipline and professionalism that they have worked hard to foster in that industry.

Last year, Yvonne Nelson became the first Ghanaian movie personality (actress) to be banned in Ghana after series of complaints lodged against her.

She was perceived to be arrogant giving movie producers, distributors and marketers no choice than to use her as a scapegoat in an attempt to bring sanity into the movie industry.

She is currently serving that Ghana ban together with Ekow Smith Asante and Kofi Adjorlolo who have been banned for two years.

    U can reach me 07033487373 or dearamaka21@yahoo.com

  30. The only think I don’t really like about her sometimes is her dress
    Style almost nude, u must not show it all we are african not oyibo pls Vyonne. I hope to be a celeb some day soon
    … Much love Amaka

  31. Banned in both Nollywood and Ghollywood from what I have heard. Well Yvonne is arrogant so I am not surprised that attitude has came back to haunt her now, hope this a lesson for her because I am not even a fan of her. I have a feeling she is jealous of Jackie appiah because people prefer jackie over her, which I feel is true but do you blame them Jackie seems more pleasant to be around then Yvonne. Not only that more popular because outside Ghana jackie is popular in Nigeria, even more then Nadia buari at times but Yvonne is not too much in Nigeria. I hope Yvonne is taking notes.

  32. frm my suggestion on this matter,i think the punishment is right in the sight of god and man also.This punishment is the righful one 4 sm one who reaces her self so much,thinking she is d best.A piece of advice 4 uvonne,try to be a good role model like angelina jolly my favourite.chao….,

    • Princess, u don’t judge pple from what u hear what yvonne did according to wat we heard was wrong bt at d same tym u don’t judge her cos i believe u would av done worse things nd u weren’t crucified so stop stressing on it cos d deed has been done nd pls don’t compare hollyhood actors nd actresses to ours cos dia is a huge difference

  33. Why all this banning of people. It should be enough just to expose their complaint or wrong doing. The producers do not have to meet the demands. This is old fashioned and not productive for the industry. When was the last time Hollywood banned an actor/actress. It is like cutting off your nose to spite your face and I just don’t get it.

  34. that is the punishment for arrogance,i think the punishment is in order

  35. I am of the view that nollywood producers were soo linient on her,next time they shd increase the yrs more

  36. pls snr actors and actresses shd not think of only money but good name.
    Ur career is much important all in the name of good performance, sometimes ur
    attitude block chance for we the young or upcoming stars.
    PLS try to settle this issue b4 is too late. PLS HUMBLY SAY AM SORRY 2 CUT LONG MATTERS SHORT.THANKS.
