Sarkodie responds to Yvonne Nelson’s memoir with “Try Me” track


Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie has responded to Yvonne Nelson‘s memoir, “I AM NOT YVONNE NELSON,” through his latest song titled “Try Me.”

In the track, Sarkodie shares his side of the story regarding his past relationship with Yvonne Nelson.

The song, which has some very strong content characterized was released on June 28, 2023, at 1:4 am while most Ghanaians had retired to bed.

The ‘Can’t Let You’ singer shared the link to the song on his YouTube channel via a tweet.

In the new song, he addressed the controversy surrounding Yvonne Nelson’s memoir, where she mentioned him as the father of an unborn child but claimed he shirked his responsibilities.

She wrote, “On an ordinary day, I would have laughed out loud and that would trigger a string of jolly conversations and jokes. But this was no laughing matter. It was a grim piece of information that was capable of turning my world upside down. I wasn’t the only one responsible for the situation, so I called the man whose potent seed had germinated in me. His name is Michael Owusu Addo, a renowned Ghanaian musician who is better known as Sarkodie.“

Sarkodie begins by acknowledging Yvonne Nelson’s courage to speak out but advises her to be mindful of selectively choosing what to reveal.

He asserts that nobody asked her to share their personal experiences and implies that if she wants to discuss their relationship, she should be transparent about her entire romantic history.

“I never thought I was going on this wave, cause I was ready to take a couple of things to my grave. First of all, let me clap for you baby you are brave but you can’t pick and choose what to say pls behave, nobody sent you so Ohemaa if you want to talk, you have to tell the world every n*gga that you f*cked” Sarkodie said in the first lines of his song.

The rapper continues by recounting their past, acknowledging that they were involved but expressing his surprise at the situation.

He claims that Yvonne Nelson informed him of her pregnancy and he suggested that she keeps the baby.  However, she explained that she wanted to complete her education instead.

” I am not going to sit here and lie we had a thing, first I thought we were cool till I had a thing … You told me you were pregnant and I was the one to be blamed … yes I wasn’t ready but I told you to keep it and you explained that you have to complete your school,” he added

Sarkodie also revealed that he still has doubts about Yvonne Nelson’s pregnancy because he offered to support her by providing medical care, but she declined, saying she didn’t need it.

“To be honest, till date, I don’t believe it because I said my doctor should take care of you and you said you don’t need it. After the conversation, you sent me a text that a friend of yours said she had a doctor and he is the best. So don’t make it seem like I was the one pushing you for abortion because that’s the only part that made me angry,” Sarkodie said.

The back-and-forth between Sarkodie and Yvonne Nelson has sparked public interest and discussions as fans and listeners share their thoughts on Sarkodie’s response and the revelations from both sides.
