Yvonne Nelson Explains why ‘Nigerian guys can lie for the whole of Africa’ in Genevieve Magazine



Yvonne Nelson0001Yvonne Nelson’s personal life is probably the most talked about across both the Ghanaian and Nigerian movie industry.

While promoting her new movie ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ the movie star has been doing media rounds and nabbed the cover of Genevieve Magazine’s July 2015 issue.

Click here if you missed it.

While chatting with Genevieve magazine, Yvonne Nelson opens up like never before about her personal life and talks about Ice Prince, Iyanya, John Dumelo and why Nigerian men are the biggest liars.

Read excerpts below.

On the feeling of being in love: I miss the late night phone calls, and the never-ending text messages. I miss that strong sense of desire that exists between two people who can’t get enough of each other. I miss that rush of adrenaline, the weakness at the knees and that joy that makes you laugh even when there’s nothing funny. I just miss loving someone and being loved in return.

On her next relationship: I don’t know yet. I can’t say I want a Nigerian, or a Gambian or a Cameroonian. When it happens, it happens. But Nigerian men can lie. Nigerian guys can lie for the whole of Africa. They will come with all the lies because they know that women respond to the things they hear. The lies are just so crazy. And I’m not some 19 year-old who just wants to have fun. I’m not in that place anymore. So I’m taking my time to get it right.

On her relationship with Ice Prince: I wasn’t in a relationship with Ice Prince; he was just a friend to me. I don’t understand the kind of attention he was trying to draw to himself by claiming we had a relationship. If he wanted to say the truth, why didn’t he just say it from the beginning? All along he’d been saying that we’re friends and all of a sudden he turns around to claim that it was more than a friendship. C’mon!

On her relationship with Iyanya: We did have a relationship. I loved him at a point. It just didn’t work out.

On the possibility of dating him again: Never! It’s like eating your vomit. No way! It’s not happening ever. As a matter of fact I’m not interested in anybody in the arts, because it is not the right place to invest time and emotions. A lot of entertainers have so much on their table, so they would not give the real thing. I know my values; I am loyal and straightforward, but a lot of entertainers are not like that. They would just lie to you and waste your time. That is because, like pilots, entertainers go around a lot. In every country a pilot goes to, he can decide to have a wife or girlfriend. So they can actually lead like a hundred different lives and none of these women will know.

On learning from past relationships: Don’t believe the hype. Don’t believe all the things men say. A man who is all-sexual from the very beginning is a no go area; he just wants to jump into bed into you. If a man truly loves you, and is ready to be with you, he will be there for you. Relationships are much more beautiful when it starts as a friendship. So you are able to goof around with the person. I love goofing around. I love to be myself and do funny videos. That’s why people think that John Dumelo and I have a thing, because John is such a perfect friend.

    All over the world, men are the same. Except, that our women in Nigeria are a tad bit docile. Religion and what will “the world say….. Have held most down in bad relationships and marriages.

      I agree with you but things are beginning to change though slowly. Women are less tolerant of bad behaviours.

      But why bash the Nigerian men? Are Ghanaian men any better?

    “They will come with all the lies because they know that women respond to the things they hear.” Haba!! so Nigerian Men should come with things women won’t respond to????

    To paraphrase an honourary Nigerian Kanye—-“I’d rather be a d**k(liar) than a swallower(lied to)”.

    Won’t even tackle the generalization and how Nigerian Men are too numerous to categorize like that e,,t,c

      Thank you o! Nigerian men swear that they are the best things to happen to women, but the truth is they are just a bunch of immature cheats and liars. I was at the DMV today and this Nigerian man started ranting and raving about how women are selfish and are ingrates and their job is to help men but all they do is complain. I reminded him that Nigerian women of today help men in the bread winning so if they ask for some help in return, it is only fair. He started shouting that women are ingrates and selfish. This man obviously had issues with his wife and he was looking for someone to agree with his stupidity. I shook my head and walked away, feeling sad for his wife. Nigerian men have major issues, even Ghanians girls don’t want you, it won’t be long before no woman will marry you. You guys should stop your rubbish a beg.

    “And I’m not some 19 year-old who just wants to have fun. I’m not in that place anymore”

    reality just dawned on you?

    Sorry your time has passed. Leave the scene for the young girls who wanna catch fun too.

    When you tell them, they club all over town catching fun, they play guys cos there are plenty toasters on their case and when the night has come, they realize they are no longer young. They want the guy that will come marry them in a month without taking his time

    How was your one chance? You enter am

      To Nigerian girl in Kuwait oil company – Thing is most of you will see the men that tell the truth but you will not listen to that one. You lot will be going for and looking for the same thing. For those who telling you want you want to hear. Just like Yvonne Nelson confessed. You love the lies. You can’t take the truth. You love fantasies and make belief. That’s why most of you keep falling into the hands of those men because they know what you crave. You talk of ‘borrow pose’ but would you give a second look to a regular guy with a normal job who won’t claim to have millions and living large? No so it’s a vicious cycle. They know the things you crave and want to hear and they feed you with all the lies you want to hear.

      She was asked a question about him. Abi she shouldn’t answer again? You will still say she hasn’t moved on because she’s too angry to respond.
      It is obvious She has moved on from her words. She said she is never going back to that relationship.

      @Dita, dearie sm people are plAin dumb . The fact that she is answering qxtns abt him shld tell he means nothn to her and I evn doubt dis girl ever loved iyanya.Bcos de way she left de guy on a whim of suspicion And frm wot I heard frm insiders de guy begged for a long tym but she wouldn’t budge..That’s a strong proud black woman there.

    My african brothers and sisters, lets talk – have any of you dated men from East Africa, South Africa or other West African countries. What was your experience.

    The continent is so huge with so many delicious men all over, nice handsome educated ones (Christians too, cos i am sorry i cant be unequally yoked if you aint flying with Jesus) – i went to AFRICAN BUSINESS CONFERENCE held annually Harvard university -in the first quarter of the year in Boston MA -) and i met some cute cute guys some from Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Cape VErde, i mean all sorts of guys, nice nice well spoken educated smart guys, entrepreneurs and business professionals (mid 20s to 40 somethings )

    After the conference on my way back home on the flight i said to myself, “African singles (men and women) our problem is we do not explore at all, ”

    **Nigerians want to marry nigerians and will remain single forever if they dont find the perfect nigerian man/women they like
    **Ghanaians want to marry Ghanaians and will remain single forever if they do not find the perfect igbo man/woman they like
    **Igbos want to marry igbos and will remain single forever if they do not find the perfect igbo man/woman they like
    **Yorubas want to marry Yorubas and will remain single forever if they do not find the perfect Yoruba man/woman they like
    **Ashanti want to marry Ashanti and will remain single forever if they do not find the perfect Ashanti man/woman they like

    Why dont we keep our options open, We live in a world with billions of people. I mean even if you dont like a foreigner (eg a Westerner, an oyinbo etc – i for one will never consider an akata -never ever) how about considering some nice guys from our own continent of africa. At end of the day they may not speak your language but our cultures and moral values are similar so it wont be a problem raising your children with those common values. Singles ladies and Single Men please relax ok and consider men/women from our own continent of africa. WE ARE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL.

    i am glad with the networks and friends i made and who knows where this might lead. I am very open – i wont restrict myself any more this 2015

      I think saw Jason – i wasnt sure it was him.. My eyes were everywhere. Those Tanzanians, Kenyas, South Africans, Zimbabwe, I mean too many. I sparked very nice intellectual conversation with all of em and made contacts (we all LINKEDIN ). But i could tell they couldnt take eyes of my big nyash and small waist including one old man like that – one of the speakers (i was thinking your wife and grandchildren are home home and you are here looking at big nyash). I wore a nice appropriate business skirt suit with my thomas pink shirt and african map cufflinks and i was really was feeling myself cos that pencil skirt suit was nice) – my shoes were hurting but i was forming lady lady tinz so i dealt with it all day

      – sorry but I am not here for married men that will publicly flirt and give no Forks!! He is a public figure and a speaker at Harvard Biz Conference, he did not care and was in his own world. I was star struck like, OMG thats THE Naija Startup whizkid. then I saw the liteskin delta gyal that works for a financial institution in NYC (I am giving yall droplets of this tea….yassss hunty). I was disappointed, sorry I took it personal. cos he seems like the focused and about family type. I didn’t say anything went down btwn them but…… catch this DIRT!!! he lives in NYC and so does this she (ghen ghen….lol). not for nothing, but the dancing inside that boston convention center ballroom, oh get as e be. lets hope it was just some dirty dancing and nothing more. **Polypoly rolls her eyes**

      she too was all giddy up and enjoying the attention. chilleeee please, if they were both discreet then I woulda never said a word. but I read his personal blog today and saw the wifey shoutout, only for this flashback from Harvard ABC to come back…….Nessssa Gurrllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll, I am one to keep secrets but when u act like no one is watching, u just gave us license to gossip. And that lite skin gyal is much younger than him.

      Women are their own worst enemies oh. you want me to keep quiet, while Mary Njoku is naija with the baby and he is posting on twitter about family dis & dat. bye Felicia!!!!!

      if you don’t want people to talk, don’t do ur dirt in public….be discreet around nigerians.

      I have been around the continent and lived in more than 3 countries in Africa and I can confidently tell you that the case is same in Lagos, Abuja, Accra, Freetown, Cape town and Joburg. Men and women are lying and cheating in equal measure. The cry you hear from ladies in Lagos is being replicated in Jo’burg and Lusaka at this very moment. There is nothing different.

    unty.. im am not saying naija guys r saints oo.. bt it all boils down to experience. .. please ask your zimbabwean, zambian, sa nd all others why they dont date their men.. please I can tell you for a fact tht zimbabwean men nd zambian men r useless.. please please nobody shld cm nd talk wht they dont knw.. these ladies will only tell you half truths.. Why ddnt they date their country men nw.. abeggi.. I have had multiple experiences with the above mentioned nd I am nt speaking hear say or half truths or isolated cases of only meeting one or two of them. . I have met Alot.. I go to school with them.. nd go to church with them. I have also met the refined ones.. nd their own equivalent of kpakos nd agberos.. these men have no shame… nd its quite sad.. nd that is the reason their women r not dating them.. lets b honest a naija guy will cheat on you.. but at least he will still manages to be Your man.. he will still hv respect for himself. . Nd do his “husbandly” or” boyfriendly” duties.. but zambians nd Esspecially zimbabweans.. wil still be cheating nd beating nd lying despite fact that they no get job nd r very comfortable collecting allowance from girlfriend. . Zimbabwean guys r particularly possessive.. I have had multiple experiences with them.. they see no problem grabbing women violently by the arm, slapping yur ass (happened to me n my friend).. ONE GUY EVEn pulled out a knife for me in an alley. . It was no joke .. one even demanded tht I MUST be his girlfriend.TRYING TO LOVE ME TO DEATH (Literally) . Asin c me c trouble oo….
    LADIES.. DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE…. I am nt here to endorse naija guys.. bt the fact remains, men wil b men. No matter what country they r from..

    Stop Talking about him Yvonne, simple! When asked by magazines or whoever in an interview simply give a “Don’t want to talk about it” or “i’ve moved on from that” answer”. Go check out the video of how Kelly Rowland shut down the lady who was interviewing her and kept on asking her Beyonce this Beyonce that. She quickly said “Girl you’re interviewing me, ask me about me” Period!. You should do same. Don’t feel obliged to answer.

      Completely agree with you. Why is Yvonne Nelson still talking publicly about a relationship she had over 5 years ago? Has she not moved on? I am sure Iyanya is still somewhere saying “this woman still loves me”, aaba!

    Wait….can’t yvonne stop talking about Iyanya. Isn’t she tired. Tis obvious she was hurt really bad and just cannot get over it. I once heard that she acted a movie where she was supposed to chant something @ a herbalist’s and all she kept saying was “Iyanya kurukere, Iyanya kurukere!” (that was supposed to be her chant). Heard it on sound city ni o. She should move on abeg. Plus, journalists PLS STOP asking about Iyanya. Aren’t there any more Qs to ask? It doesn’t have to be personal, could be about her career. E done do, abeg! Abi Kilode gan na?

    sour grapes. Yvonne, it just didn’t work out. Look forward unless you are trying to draw attention to yourself. You have been missing from the spotlight.. since you describe you old BF’s as vomit, maybe the think you are vomit too?

    How about the men in Ghana? they are all so honest that it has been working out a lot..??????

    Thing is most of you will see the men that tell the truth but you will not listen to that one. You lot will be going for and looking for the same thing. For those who telling you want you want to hear. Just like Yvonne Nelson confessed. You love the lies. You can’t take the truth. You love fantasies and make belief. That’s why most of you keep falling into the hands of those men because they know what you crave. You talk of ‘borrow pose’ but would you give a second look to a regular guy with a normal job who won’t claim to have millions and living large? No so it’s a vicious cycle. They know the things you crave and want to hear and they feed you with all the lies you want to hear.

    Yvonne you are beautiful and your hair is giving me major life! But hunty you sound ignorant generalizing a whole country’s male population is quite bigoted. If you are meeting these kind of Nigerian men its a you problem.
    Because if you keep attracting scoundrels maybe its time to focus on fixing you so when the right person comes along regardless of nationality you can recognize a good guy.

    Yeah!!yea!!yeah!! Pls dnt flatter urself this so funny! I’m a ghanaian and my family will never allow me to marry a nigerian. I myself dnt evn want it.The average Gh Girl doesnt want a nigerian man at least not as a. ‘Husband’ cos they will b stigmatised and they Cnt inherit any royal stool in de Family. Yes som ghanaian Girls like nigerian Guys but de truth is …its for Money ‘de Gold diggers’ and those Girls who are perceive to be Loose that de average ghanaian man doesnt want.One thing Abt Gtanaian men is… They hv this unique ‘pride and ego ‘so they prefer women who come out as pure, clean, honorable,decent,respectful etc.Usually for de average Ghanaian man considers character first before looks whn it come to relationship.Those naijans deceiving urself dat Ghanaian women like u dat wil be abt 2 percent. Dnt go to sm ghettos in Accra alone and use that as an accurate data measure or sample.Accara is lyk 5 percent of Gh.i love people like bellanaija editor or owner they so enlightened, liberal and gv meaning to I cm here always. But trust me abt 95 percent of gh girls think like me. I blame it on de bad stuff we grow up hearing abt nigerians in our homes .

    • Linda

      July 10, 2015 at 5:05 pm

      Yes as a Ghanaian you have spoken the truth . Only underprivileged girls from the ghettos and poor homes date Nigerian men cos they want a way out and possibly that man may have money (legit or not 🙂 ).

      Any decent girl from a decent home may may date a naija man for fun, but she knows never to bring them home for marriage or she will be disowned. They will say ” Ewurade yesu, wu kor ware Alata niiiii” – They same way naijas look down on us sometimes cos they think the illiterates that migrated to Agege back in the day represents all Ghanaian, (which is an ignorant foolish assumption) – Honey, the feeling is mutual.

      So in conclusion get this straight an educated Ghanaian girl raised in a decent home (possibly Accra) went to good international schools , eloquent, articulate, well versed and with educated parents and well brought up WILL NEVER MARRY A NIGERIAN And that is a fact. You look down on us, we do same (matter of fact we are afraid of you, as in 419, money ritual etc)

      They might date and fck em once in a while and chop some of the money. But marrying is a no go zone. Even if it happens it is few and far between.

      So dont get all big headed bragging like your men our gold mine to all african ladies.

      (Yaa serwaa learn to spell correctly this short hand writing is so uncouth, eww)

      And which reasonable Nigerian Guy would wanna marry a Ghanaian as a wife in the first place? A average Nigerian thinking when it comes to marriage is always reduced to tribal level (with few exception). Don’t get it twisted, Na to chop and pass be other African women dey be to us. We like to explore, but at the end of the day, our conclusion is “Na home better”

      You hear bad stuff about Nigerians at home right? You Ghanaians are ingrates and hypocrites! Y’all would kiss our asses and go back to talk shit! Do you think a Nigerian man wants any Ghanaian slut as his wife? You’re here saying the girls in gh don’t want naija men lol! That’s a bloody lie! They are dying to have our men. See as Yvonne was dying for iyanya and he was just upcoming o I believe he didn’t have the kind of money she must have had. So what are you saying? That they follow our men because of money? Think before you talk abeg

    Why do Nigerians feel so pompous – the whole nation of Nigeria thinks every other African country is beneath them. You are the most populous nation but trust me yall aint ish. I mean i see this all the time from you guys, you even create award shows call it “Africa Awards etc etc ” yet 90% nominees are Nigerians – Real housewives of Africa yet the whole cast is nigerian, i mean are you freaking kiding me. SA is the best country economically in africa yet no bragging. Kenyas bags global entertainment (oscars) awards yet you all started 20 yrs ago and we still aint seen shyt.

    See how you are all hear bragging like Your men are Gods Gift to women and every African woman wants them. You are delusional. Dont you all know you guys are a stigma in many other african countries for someone to bring yall home as a partner/ Dont get it twisted you lot entertain us well and we love your movies and music, but honey it stops right there okay. Get off your high horse. There are nice DECENT african men all across the continent. So dont go bragging all African girls Want Nigerian men. Its foolish statement to make

      Lmao! I can see that you’re really pained. Aww but sorry how can we make your pain go away? Looool! Mehn stop hatin for no reason. Yes Nigerian men are the bomb. It’s not our fault that we’re proud to claim them in public. I wonder where you’re from and I wonder if you can claim your men coz this your jealousy is too much! As for real housewives of “Africa” is Nigeria not still Africa? Is it our fault that we couldn’t get nice actors from your side. Please if you’re really pained just jump over a cliff! Or you hang yourself! Idiot!
