Yvonne Nelson also won Africa’s Best Actress at the just-ended Africa Entertainment Awards held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a couple of weeks ago.
The actress got an AMAA nomination in 2010 for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the movie ‘Heart Of Men.’ Last year, she also picked Ghana’s best actress at the City People awards.
She also won Favourite Actress award at the first edition of Ghana Movie Awards in 2010. Currently, she is one of the few Ghanaian actresses whose names are gradually getting attention on the international scene.
