Actress and movie producer Yvonne Nelson is barking up the wrong tree in her quest to help the ailing Ghanaian movie industry, says actor and Director Kobi Rana.
Rana shared his thoughts on the ranging controversy about actresses concentrating on looking good on red carpets instead of finding or creating jobs in the industry.
“WHAT PEOPLE WEAR for events is not your problem or the industry problem. ENVY, HATE, DISUNITY and unnecessary competition are some of the problems aside lack of funds and distribution.” wrote Rana.
Nelson created a storm of a sort, criticizing her colleagues for failing to help the industry, concentrating instead on ‘slaying’ on red carpets.

Actress and Movie Producer Yvonne Nelson has slammed her colleague actresses and the organizers of the Golden Movie Awards.
In a series of tweets Sunday morning, she lashed out colleague actress for their inability to see that “the industry has lost it’s (sic) way” because they all they want to do is “slay” and be posted on Social Media.
