It is unclear who is currently carrying the mantle as Nigeria’s hottest actress, following previous claims that actresses Mercy Johnson and Tonto Dikeh were battling for the top spot.
However, there are reports that Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has emerged as the hottest Ghanaian actress in Nigeria.
NEWS-ONE sources in Nigeria said there was high demand for the actress in Nigeria just like when debuted in Nollywood some years ago.
“Yvonne is in high demand in Nigeria. Despite your producers banning her, she is excelling in Nigeria big time. I know she is always in Nigeria,” added the source who is a Nigerian journalist with a reputable entertainment newspaper in Nigeria.
The source was unable to confirm other actresses that were on the hottest actress list.
Another source said Ghanaian actor Frank Artus was also living his dream as a hot actor in Nollywood.
Back in Ghana, movie productions appeared to have slow down this year, the reason a lot of local movies have not been premiered.
Yvonne on the other hand has featured in most of the movies which would be out this Christmas season or early next year.
This year, Yvonne has been in the media spotlight, arguably more than any other celebrity in Ghana- from issues of her illegal ban, rumours about a pregnancy that didn’t exist, attempts on her life and so on.

She was last in the news for shopping for her YN Closet fashion shop, and has been nominated for Ghana Movie Awards Best Actress In Supporting Role for her role in ‘4play Reloaded’.
Yvonne is a former Miss Ghana contestant who burst onto Ghana’s movie scene with a big-screen role in ‘Princess Tyra’.
Her first ever supporting role in Venus Film’s movie, ‘The Return of Beyonce’, which featured the likes of Van Vicker, Jackie Appiah, and Nadia Buari among others, prepared her for a successful movie career.
She quickly became a household name, not only in Ghana but in Africa, after her role in ‘Princess Tyra’. 
Yvonne has proved her versatility as an actress by starring in a number of Ghanaian and Nigerian movies, including ‘Prince Pride’, ‘Girls Connection’, ‘Playboy’, and ‘Golden Adventure’.
She won Ghana’s Favourite Actress Award at the Ghana Movie Awards last year.
She was has also been nominated twice at the African Movie Academy Awards.
