John Dumelo and Yvonne Nelson have finally come back as friends but we are not sure if their bond will be as strong as it should be in the beginning before their fight.
They had a public falling out over the ‘Dumsor must stop campaign’ initiated by Yvonne last year to protest the prolonged load shedding exercise which culminated in a massive demonstration in Accra.
Now that they are friends, not everyone is happy about that. John has revealed “There are many people who were happy when Yvonne and I stopped talking and even now that we are back together, I know there are others who wished our relationship was still ‘on the rocks’,” he said. “I do not recall who made the first move to reconcile but I remember we had been talking for some time now.
Yvonne recently called me for a role in a movie she’s producing and that is where we took the pictures and made everything public”, he added.
He said “a lot of people look up to the both of us as role models and it was time to sit up and set a good example. We have different views and opinions but that does not mean we should be enemies. What the nation needs is peace and as a peace ambassador, I need to lead the way,” he added. “So how can I preach peace when I’m not at peace with my friends? What example would I be setting? God forbid but if your friend you don’t talk to dies, what will you go and say at the burial? Are you even going to attend the burial? What at all do we achieve when we say we don’t want to talk to someone again? Doesn’t God forgive us when we sin?”
