In 2015, Nelson organized and lead a demonstration against the John Mahama-led government over intermittent power supply.
The #DumsorMustStop demonstration led to her granting interviews both to local and foreign media houses where she expressed her frustration about the effects on Ghanaians and businesses.
The demonstration earned Nelson the accolade ‘Yaa Asantewaa’ after the great female warrior of the Ashanti kingdom.
The likes of Efya, Van Vicker, and Prince David Osei were part of the highly-successful demonstration.
Ghanaian standup comedian, DKB who, about a fortnight threatened similar demonstration on Social Media in a reply to Nelson’s tweet called the recent unstable power supply “pure nonsense.”
“Pure nonsense my dear. U increase cost of literally everything, no complain. Dollar rise like high tides, no complain. Small light we go take bed after high expenses too be problem. They have 12 days remaining! I start count.” tweeted DKB.
