Ghanaian Actress and producer Yvonne Nelson has disclosed that she is a secondary school virgin that needs to stay focus on her career and not placing more hopes on marriage.

According to the actress in an interview with KSM on the KSM's Show on Metro TV, she is not in a rush to settle down as she does not want to disappoint her mother.

She stated that the rate at which divorces cases are becoming rampant is just too much especially in the movie industry and would not like that to be her case.

In her words, “This year I'm a secondary virgin I'm just trying to concentrate on my career. I'm not in a rush; I don't want to marry today and divorce tomorrow because it happens a lot in the industry. Marriage is a beautiful thing but it has to be right. I don't want to let my mom down, I want to make her and myself happy.”

She further noted most Ghanaian and Nigerian men feel intimidated sometimes with the age and financial status of the woman which has always been the problem getting the right man.

“Most Ghanaian and Nigerian men are intimidated; most often when it's age appropriate; then they think I'm doing better than them and that I'm going to be bossy and control them around. Those around my age are bothered that I'm an independent lady. That has always been the problem,” she noted.

“There was about two guys who got scared. But I really don't mind. Middle of last year, I was trying out something and I wasn't convinced so I backed off. It had to do with the man not being matured enough,” she explained.
