The Father of celebrated Ghanaian actress and producer, Yvonne Nelson has passed. He died on Monday according to sources.
Yvonne has confirmed the sad news early Tuesday but didn’t give further details.
The popular actress has not been that close to her father because while growing up, her mum has always occupied that father space.
According to her,
“My dad was not a part of my life because he wasn’t there for me. So, I almost do not say anything about him because there is no relationship or love between us. My dad is like any other person out there because I didn’t have a chance to develop a relationship with him. We have each other’s phone numbers and he calls me when he feels like talking to me. It always feels like talking to a random person because there are absolutely no feelings whatsoever.”
Speaking on the possibility of forgiving her dad, Nelson says:
“Sometimes our society makes it hard for us talk about things like this. But, it’s my story and I don’t have any other way to say it and I don’t want to sugar-coat it. He was never a part of my life and it is quiet unfortunate. We actually have an ‘okay’ relationship and it’s not like I won’t talk to him if I see him today. But it ends there because we do not have a relationship. Talking to him is akin to talking to someone you don’t know.”
