Accra High Court has ruled a defamation case in favour of popular Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson and has asked television presenter Mona Gucci to pay an amount of GHC500,000 to the actress.
It could be recall that Mona Gucci made some ill statements about Yvonne Nelson on Accra-based Neat FM. During the interview, Mona Gucci gave out a list of female media and social personalities who she referred to as “slay queens”.
A slay queen is simply a young gold digger who is active on social media and pretends to afford a lavish partying lifestyle. Mona Gucci named Yvonne Nelson as one of the slay queens in Ghana but the comment of Mona did not go down well with Yvonne who in return asked Mona to retract and apologize to her but refused.
“Yvonne doesn’t show off, but she is a slay because you know the slay queen it entails a lot, we have both showing off and some contacts and people who we know that the things that you do and the lifestyle you exhibit, someone is paying for you behind the scenes,” Mona Gucci said on Neat FM.
Reports has it that, after Mona Gucci was sued by Yvonne Nelson, she never appeared in court. The court has stated that Mona Gucci was being evasive when she was served the write of summons.
The court which was presided over by Justice John Eugene Nyante Nyandu has ordered Mona Gucci to pay a sum of GHc500,000 to Yvonne and also render an apology for her defamatory comment about the actress during her interview.
