Yvonne Nelson in her newly released memoir has alleged that she slept with Sarkodie, got pregnant for him and they aborted the baby. Does that mean the rapper cheated on his wife?

Africa’s most decorated rapper Sarkodie (real name: Michael Owusu Addo) has a successful career spanning 10 years at the top of his game and a decade since his landmark debut album, 2009’s joyous Makye – one of African music’s biggest and best-loved hip- hop albums.

His contributions to the Ghanaian music industry have earned him numerous accolades, including the Vodafone Ghana Music Award for “Artiste of the Decade”. He is also known for the moniker “Ghana Music Landlord” because of how he has projected the country globally.

As well as having tens of millions of album sales and over 90 awards to his name in his native Ghana, Sarkodie’s sound – a fizzing blend of hiplife, hip-hop, and Afrobeats – has led to sold-out shows at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum & performances with an impressive array of international names.

About his love life, he has been married since 2018 to a career woman named Tracy Owusu Addo and the two have been the fans’ favorite celebrity couple for years now.

Did Sarkodie cheat on Tracy Osei?

Since Sarkodie rose to fame, he has only been linked with his now wife Tracy Owusu Addo aka Tracy SarkCess, formerly known as Tracy Ama.

Sarkodie and his wife Tracy since marrying in 2018 have been blessed with two children, a daughter, Adalyn Owusu Addo, and a son, Michael Nana Yaw Owusu Addo Jnr, named after the rapper’s father.

Tracy is a businesswoman and entrepreneur that runs her own enterprise.

In the same Tema neighborhood where they grew up, Comm.9, Tracy and Sarkodie met and started dating. Sark and Tracy tied the knot in a private ceremony on 17th July 2018.

Per her LinkedIn, She is a CSR-driven media strategist and a passionate advocate for gender diversity. She recently launched a project dubbed “Brave” to help young girls.

What happened between Sarkodie and Yvonne Nelson? “Sarkodie impregnated me, refused to accept responsibility”, the actress disclosed in her memoir.

Yvonne Nelson has released her debut autobiography where she talked about her life, challenges, career, and family.

The book titled ‘I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,’ released on June 18, 2023, reveals her romantic relationships with men, and how she discovered who her real father was after 30 years of not knowing him.

Per her Amazon, I Am Not Yvonne Nelson “is an explosive and riveting account of a young woman who sets out to discover herself but finds out that she has been living with a false identity. The drama and the twists and turns of this moving story have all the markings of a spell-binding movie script, except that the protagonist, who is an actor, is contending with a reality that intermittently soaks her pillow with tears. Uncharacteristic of an autobiography, the author comes to her audience stark naked. The book opens the door widely into the life of the author and exposes the good, the bad, and the ugly sides, not only of her life but also of the make-believe world of celebrities“.

While her memoir entails a lot about herself, Ghanaians were shocked to learn that she slept with Sarkodie, in fact, they dated even when each of them wasn’t famous.

In her revealing memoir, ‘I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,’ the Ghanaian actress opens up about an alleged encounter with multiple award-winning rapper Sarkodie in 2010, shedding light on his alleged failure to take responsibility for the pregnancy.

Nelson explains that Sarkodie’s involvement with another girlfriend made the difficult decision to terminate the pregnancy, uncertain about their future together.

Back in 2010, Sarkodie and Tracy were still an item, although the rapper was private about his love life. So, in this case, Sarkodie really did cheat on his wife who was his then-girlfriend.

An old interview with Sarkodie also shows him saying he had an encounter with the actress. In the video, he was asked to choose between Lydia Forson and Yvonne and he chose Yvonne adding that he’s had an encounter with her before.

Aside from Nelson, Obidi has not been linked with anyone else.

At the moment, Sarkodie, his wife Tracy Owusu, and Yvonne herself have commented on the alleged affair.
