Yvonne Nelson has said that the
prolonged challenges
confronting movie industry can
be largely blamed on lack of unity
and jealousy among movie
makers and actors.

The actress, who spoke to
Ghana’s Suncity FM on her ban by
Film Producers Association of
Ghana back in 2010 said the
industry especially English-
speaking movies, is currently
limping on ‘one leg’ and risks a
total collapse.

‘It looks like there is too much
envy in the movie industry.
Instead of focusing on building
the industry, when something
happens and it is negative, they
want to capitalize on it. It is like
everybody wants to suck your
blood out. When something is
negative then they are happy. It
saddens me and that is why we
are where we are now. The
movie industry is like on one leg.
A year will come that we will
shoot only two English movies.’
she said.

She further stated ‘It is because
of jealousness. It is that attitude
that when someone does
something, they say that that
person is being too known… we
are not united,’
Film Producers Association of
Ghana banned Yvonne Nelson for
a year from acting in any
Ghanaian or Nigerian produced
movie in 2010.

Yvonne’s ban was
based on accumulation of several
alleged incidents of her
disrespectful and rude attitude
towards fellow actresses,
producers and crew members on
location and even when off-
camera.
