I Used Money Made In Nigeria To Fund My Ghanaian Movies – Actress Yvonne Nelson

Yvonne Nelson, a leading Ghanaian actress, has opened up on how the money she made from Nigeria was used for movies in her country.

In an interview with Hitz FM, a Ghanaian radio station, the actress, who has featured in several Nollywood movies, spoke on how she made money from Nigeria.

“There is money in film, I started in 2010, so I have been using the same money you know. I have made some decent money from Nigeria, so that money I didn’t touch it, it is for production,” she said.

“I have my production account so that is what I have been using to produce all these movies, and luckily for me, some of my past productions I got like placement money from companies to do placements and stuff. It’s been rewarding if you know what you are doing and your movies are good.”

She also challenged her colleagues in Ghana to join efforts in reviving the country’s movie industry.

“It can, if John Dumelo, Jackie Appiah, Yvonne Okoro, Van Vicker, we all become producers. I believe everyone is going to see it, you know, the revival will be seen. I am urging people, not just outsiders or people who have money, we can do it on our own,” she said.

“I can’t be the only one going around talking and saying let’s do this, people can see that we are not even bothered about the industry, we don’t care if it crashes or not so yeah if we can all start producing and helping the younger ones also showcase their talents, I believe we will start from somewhere.”
