we introduced the KFB best friends series – where we feature top
socialites and their best friends. Life is all about celebrating
friendship is one of the bonds that holds us together.
For this week’s KFB Best Friends Alert, we bring you Ghanian movie stars, Yvonne Nelson and John Dumelo.
They have been best friends for over a year now and they call each other “my boo for life”…..Yvonne says “A good friend who makes you laugh is cheaper than going for therapy. John is that friend of mine!”
They do almost everything together, travel together, attend events together, eat together and even watch movies together!
Yvonne says they love watching the movie ‘Titanic’ and each time they do, she ends up crying while he consoles her after laughing at her.
Some of their fun moments include their hilarious version of the ‘Oga at the top dance”.
In a not-so-recent interview with Toolz on Ndani TV, when asked what was going on between her
and John, Yvonne said “John is
like my brother. He’s a Fantastic guy…” adding that John had a
girl friend in UK: “John has a girlfriend. John has a girlfriend….in
London I guess. He’s going to kill me!”
Dumelo however refuted Yvonne’s claim in a follow up interview with NigeriaFilms “I think Yvonne Nelson was not serious with her statement. I
know when Yvonne Nelson is serious and when she’s joking. She was
acting in the interview so there is no need of taking her statement
serious. My girlfriend is not in UK” he said.
Last year, the best friends created a video together on keek where they jokingly cleared the air on the misconception (a Yvonne and John secret relationship) everyone had about them.
“I’ve never felt for her and never will. So ladies out there I’m
sorry she is really spoiling my market. But thanks to all of you for
saying we look good together. But it’s simply not possible to like
Yvonne because she only makes me puke” he said amidst laughter
While Yvonne amidst laughter also said “the
whole world thinks that there is something between the two of us … let
me get straight to the point.. I don’t like John; I don’t feel nothing
Nelson’s cheeks are his Achilles hills.
appeared on the ‘Hang Out’ segment on the ‘Cruise Control’ show on Hitz
FM last year, said “I’m cool with every kiss in my movies but I enjoy the ones with
Yvonne Nelson the most and this is because we get along well on and off
set, this simply means that we are closest friends”

Yvonne in a recent interview with Vanguard said
“I am not dating now-conventionally speaking, but I wouldn’t say that I am
desperate for a relationship at the same time. People have asked me if I don’t
think I should be considering settling down, and I tell them that I appreciate
their concerns but that I am still very young. I don’t have to rush to get
married because everyone is doing so. When the time comes, I will get married.”
So for now she’s sticking with bestie, John Dumelo cos he’s always there for her! #Okbye
if she is currently dating anybody, given the fact that she was called a
lesbian simply because she had not been regularly seen in the company
of her boyfriend, Yvonne replied “I am not dating now-conventionally
speaking, but I wouldn’t say that I am desperate for a relationship at
the same time. People have asked me if I don’t think I should be
considering settling down, and I tell them that I appreciate their
concerns but that I am still very young. I don’t have to rush to get
married because everyone is doing so. When the time comes, I will get
This may surprise you: I am a simple girl – very easy to
date. If I go out with a date, it doesn’t cost the man money. I don’t
order expensive champagne, I don’t order exotic meals. My drink of
choice is orange juice. Most women would say they are looking for a
chiseled man – those with perfect six-packed abs – well good luck to
I am not interested in macho men. I am more interested in
the substance-the values and the humanity the man brings to the table
than with his physical or material possessions. I work hard, so I don’t
expect my man to have to slave to satisfy me. I am sure this may
surprise you, because any one who looks at me – analyses the roles I
play may incorrectly define me according to those roles. That is the
exact opposite of what and who I am.
The screen diva claimed that
she has been misunderstood in the industry, adding that “I am nothing
close to the roles I play in movies.”
On the role she played in
that soft-porn movie ‘Heart of Men”, featuring herself and Majid Michel
where they were enmeshed in a hot romance scene, the leggy actress
debunked exposing vital parts of her body. “That is why I am willing to
address some of those misconceptions now. Even though it pains me to
have to talk about them, but I will. People should understand that. I am
an actress and I get scripts where I’m expected to interprete my role.
a consummate professional, I am not going to turn down those scripts
because I’m expected to act in a certain manner. I am aware that some
people took exception to the role I played in the movie, “Heart of Men”
where there appeared to be some form of frontal nudity, but the truth of
the matter is that there was no such overt display of nudity.”

Btw, here’s a quick tip on how to be a great best friend
Always come through in the clutch —> When your friend really needs something done, or a favor, be there for
them. Help out. Think of how much they’d appreciate it. You never know
when you’ll be stuck between a rock and a hard place and might need
someone (a good friend, maybe?) to bail you out.
