Lagos – Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson hates wasting water, and she showed this by refusing to take part in the ALS #IceBucketChallenge, and threatening to block fans on social media.
Celebrities and political figures globally have taken part in the ALS #IceBucketChallenge - a challenge that dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads.
A common stipulation is that nominated people have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation to Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) victims.
Mavin records boss Don Jazzy who was the First African celebrity to take part in the challenge nominated Iyanya who then nominated Yvonne Nelson who is his ex-girlfriend.
Nelson went to Instagram to explain why she snubbed Iyanya’s nomination before lashing out at fans who were not comfortable with her opinion.
"Saysh*t and I'll block you if I see it. SIMPLE! You live in America and think Africa is America? People in my country don't have potable water to drink and you display your ignorance on my post? No one asked you to follow or check my page..... Ilovemyafrica! Ourpartoftheworld" she wrote on Instagram.
The Icebucket challenge has created awareness and money for ALS victims.
