Popular Ghanaian actress and movie producer, Yvonne Nelson, has mentioned that she does not have to depend on a man before she survives.
This was revealed in an interview with Joy FM and she also mentioned that her hard work was motivated out of that fear of having to wait on a man before she can make decisions.
There has been a debate in Ghana in recent times on whether women should depend on men for their means of livelihood.
This came after a viral video showing curvy actress Moesha Boduong speaking in an interview with CNN’s Amanpour.
In the video, Moesha Boduong spoke of Ghanaian women depend on men for their survival and that she is sleeping with her current man because he can afford to pay her bills.
However, Yvonne Nelson has maintained that she will never depend on any man for survival.
When asked if she will prefer a richer man over Jamie, she said:
If it were a wealthy or richer man, it’s easy for some of us but it’s not about that. Why do I have to work hard? I would work hard and look for a man with money. I don’t need a man to feed me and pay my bills every day…”.
“With Jamie, it’s been, pure love. Don’t date people because of money. He might not even respect you and you can’t question them. They pay your bills and you shut up…”
