Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie, has released a new song addressing the recent controversy surrounding his relationship with actress, Yvonne Nelson.
The renowned actress made allegations in her memoir titled “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,” which was published on June 18, 2023, claiming that the rapper coerced her into terminating their unborn child.
Yvonne Nelson recounted that when she revealed her pregnancy to Sarkodie, she could sense his heart racing, and when he eventually spoke, he faltered.
According to Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie expressed his reluctance towards the pregnancy, fearing that it would tarnish his image and career hence the only option seemed to be getting rid of it.
He explained extensively that it was rather Yvonne’s idea to have the baby aborted because she was in school.
The song’s lyric video depicts a female astronaut descending from space, possibly symbolizing Nelson’s declining career since the release of her book.
The release of “Try Me” clearly demonstrates Sarkodie’s discontent with Nelson’s book.
He has said that he initially wanted to take the matter “to my grave,” but he decided to speak out after he felt that Nelson was misrepresenting the truth.
It remains to be seen how Nelson will respond to “Try Me.”
