Renowned Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie, has recently unveiled a new song titled “Try Me,” which directly confronts the recent controversy surrounding his alleged relationship with actress Yvonne Nelson. The controversy erupted after Yvonne made startling claims in her memoir, “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,” published on June 18, 2023, suggesting that Sarkodie coerced her into terminating their unborn child.

In her book, Yvonne Nelson recounted the moment she revealed her pregnancy to Sarkodie, noting his visible unease and hesitant response. According to her account, Sarkodie expressed concerns about the potential damage the pregnancy could cause to his image and career, leading them to consider terminating it as the only viable option. The revelation came as a surprise to the public, as there had been no previous indications of an intimate relationship between the two.

In response to the allegations raised by Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie released a three-minute and sixteen-second song titled “Try Me.” The song, featuring a mix of Akan Twi, English, and Pidgin, serves as Sarkodie’s vehement denial of being the one who pushed for the abortion. He asserts that it was Yvonne Nelson who engaged in promiscuous behavior and that she was the one who ultimately suggested terminating the pregnancy due to her educational pursuits.

The lyric video accompanying the song depicts a female astronaut descending from space, potentially symbolizing Yvonne Nelson’s perceived decline in her career since the release of her book.

Sarkodie’s decision to address the controversy through his music underscores his dissatisfaction with Yvonne Nelson’s book and the allegations made within it. He previously expressed his intention to keep the matter private but felt compelled to speak out after perceiving Nelson’s account as a misrepresentation of the truth.

It remains to be seen how Yvonne Nelson will respond to Sarkodie’s song, “Try Me.” The public and fans of both artists await further developments in this ongoing saga, as the two individuals attempt to reconcile their conflicting narratives.

As the situation unfolds, it highlights the complexities of personal relationships, the power of storytelling, and the impact of public perception on the careers of public figures like Sarkodie and Yvonne Nelson.
