Ermmm... I Thought Yvonne Nelson Was Smart

In the past few days, I have been seeing reports online which claim that Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson labelled Nigerian men serial liars or something of that sort in a recent interview.

I have kept on brushing aside that report because I have always assumed Yvonne is a smart lady. The thing is I also respect the Genevieve Magazine brand which she granted the interview and I strongly doubt there will ever stoop so low to misquote a Yvonne Nelson or any other person.
I read that the actress was asked what country she would love her husband to come from and her  response was:
‘I can’t say I want a Nigerian or a Gambian or a Cameroonian. When it happens, it happens. But Nigerian men can lie. Nigerian guys can lie for the whole of Africa. They will come with all the lies because they know that women respond to the things they hear. The lies are just so crazy. And I’m not some 19 year-old who just wants to have fun. I’m not in that place anymore. So I’m taking my time to get it right.’...
Oh! My dear beautiful Yvonne Nelson I still doubt you would say such in public. That right there is the danger of a single story.
If you really said it though, all I will ask you to do is to rise above depression. You seem to be really depressed and suffering a hangover of previous relationships which went sour.
