Yvonne Nelson Demands Apology Over Fake LV Rumour

Actress Yvonne Nelson has notified the public that the rumour mongers who went to town with claims that she was selling fake Louis Vuitton (LV) bags in her YN Closet have ran away from their claims. According to the leggy actress, they could not validate their claims after she opened her shop to them. She opened her doors to them, asking those involved in particular to come and check her shop if indeed there were LV bags on sale in her shop but none of them showed up. “I thought they would come to the shop and verify, as serious as they claimed they were, when they spewed those lies about me. If they may have read my response to that fake story, then they are ok with it. But the next honourable thing to do is to apologize. I am sure people won’t start calling them fake website too, if they do that. “I believe there are ethics of the profession or career that they are pursuing and they must do as such,” Yvonne told NEWS-ONE when she was asked about new developments on LV brouhaha.

A search for the word Gingam on the worldwide web linked it to a wide range of things including companies. Efya said her aunt actually gave her the name and she was comfortable with it. “Gingam is a young warrior; that is what it is. It is also a definition for somebody who believes in what he or she is doing.” She added, “It’s a movement and it makes you feel good about yourself; you do whatever you do well. It does not matter if you are not a leader. If you Google Gingam you probably found out it is designing a company. But my auntie started calling Gingam when I was young. I believe in it because when I say it, it makes me feel good. Gingam is not bad, we still pushing it.” The songstress has wrapped up the shoot of her impressive upcoming video for her hit single, ‘A Moment Notice’.

No Show For Nana Quame: 5 Years After He Dares Ofori Amponsah

Ghanaian singer Nana Quame has been missing in action for over four years since he threw a challenge that he would quit music if Ofori Amponsah beat him on the musical stage.

I’m not bluffing; I respect him but he’s no better than I am,” Nana Quame reportedly said. Ofori however refused to engage Nana in any stage competition. Nana Quame’s comment generated a lot of public interest at the time as he tried his best to justify himself on stages that found himself. It was thus on record that in his bid to outshine Ofori Amponsah, he tried to break all the rules in stage performance.

I Don’t Sell Fake Stuff -Yvonne Nelson

STAR ACTRESS Yvonne Nelson is in shock over media reports that she is selling fake and imitated brands of Louis Vuitton (LV) and Gucci bags in her Dansoman-based YV Closet fashion shop.
The actress said she initially took the publications as a joke and decided to ignore it but changed her mind when reputable television stations also started spreading the report without contacting her for her side of the story. “I believe the persons behind these stories have other motives and the way they keep repeating it makes me suspect they want to give my fashion shop a bad reputation just to collapse my business for reasons best known to them. "I’m shocked because I do not even sell Louis Vuitton (LV) or Gucci. Any person who has been to my shop can attest to this. I don’t even have more than 5 bags in my shop. All my bags are Aldo and they are sold out," Yvonne noted. She explained further: “Ask other persons who sell designer stuff and they would tell you that most people …

I am telling you, 2012 is for D Flex,” he added in a shot conversation with NEWS-ONE last Friday after an album release press conference at Afrikiko in Accra. …
