Sarkodie responds to Yvonne Nelson’s assertion on abortion: “I wasn’t ready but I told you to keep it.”
In a recently released song, musician Michael Owusu Addo, better known by his stage name Sarkodie, shared his perspective on his role in the life of actress Yvonne Nelson and their contentious abortion “beef.”
In her recently released autobiography, “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,” Yvonne Nelson disclosed that she had an affair with the rapper in 2010 that led to a pregnancy.
She explains why she decided to have the pregnancy terminated in Chapter 8 of the book because the rapper refused to take responsibility.
She claims that she then learned that the rapper had a different girlfriend who was enrolled at a foreign university, which is why he had been rejected.
But in response to Yvonne Nelson’s accusation, Sarkodie asserts that he never advised the actress to get an abortion in his most recent album, “Try Me,” which is a direct response to Yvonne.
He said that even though he wasn’t ready to be a father, he had advised her to keep the pregnancy, but Yvonne decided to get the abortion because of her schooling at the time.
Therefore, don’t give the impression that I was the one pressuring you to have an abortion, he urged in Try Me.
Sark sings that there are a few things he had imagined taking to his grave, implying that the abortion might have stayed a secret; he commends her for her courage in speaking the tale but claims Yvonne cannot.
In addition, he advises Yvonne not to portray herself as the victim and give the idea that she was seeking love.
He warns, “Baby girl make you not try me.”
