Ghanaian actress Beverly Afaglo has taken to her page to show appreciation to donors and has also requested actress Yvonne Nelson to end the GoFundMe campaign created on her behalf after the fire incident.
Friend and colleague Yvonne Nelson showed her support by creating a GoFundMe account for Beverly Afaglo after she lost all her properties in the fire outbreak a few days ago. Yvonne Nelson and one other person created a GoFundMe account to raise $20,000 to help her cover her losses.
However, a lot of people criticized the campaign created after an old video of her bragging about her wealth surfaced on social media. In a live video, Beverly said that she is grateful to the donors who contributed to the GoFundMe campaign but the money raised $1,864, equivalent to GH11,000 will not be able to rent a house.
“Yvonne Nelson contacted me and said ‘I want to open a GoFundMe [campaign] for you.’ I told my management about it and they agreed because people have been calling to support me. I told my husband and he was against it. Because he is a showbiz personality as well and he knows how evil the internet is,” she said in an Instagram live video today.
“But we went against him and created the GoFundMe thinking that the love that I was receiving was going to be the same love that I’m going to receive but it turned around to hate. The moment Yvonne posted details of the GoFundMe campaign, hates and trolls started coming in from every corner.”
“Today, which is one week of what happened to me, I’m going to ask everybody doing the GoFundMe to end it, especially Yvonne Nelson. Akans have a saying that men create money but God distributes it. I’ll be fine.”

“I am grateful. Thank you very much. I don’t know how to put it, this cannot even rent a house but I am super grateful for all the love and donations. Even as little as GHC3, I’m grateful for all donations. They say the one who has little that will give you will give you more when they have more. I bless you. You will never lack,” she added.
