Mahama’s defeat in 2016 has affected my music career – Mzbel
Mzbel, a songstress and an instrumental figure in promoting the agenda of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the lead up to the 2016 elections has confessed that ex-president John Dramani Mahama’s defeat in 2016 has affected her music career leading to “no shows” after the elections.
According to the “Tongues” singer, until NPP took power from the NDC, she was one of the sought after musicians for cooperate events. From Bank-gigs to fundraisers among others, she was highly recommended by members of the NDC to grace such functions but today, the story is totally different as she no longer get request from her party – the NDC.
“Before the removal of NDC from power, I used to play a lot of cooperative organisational gigs. There were some banks, hotels, etc, I used to play gigs for them on yearly basis,” she said.
“Sadly, after the change of government, those in the various positions who used to give me the deals have all been removed and some transferred to different places. This has really affected my music career,” Mzbel said in an interview on Kumasi-based Kessben FM.
Born Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, Mzbel, 38, has released some of the popular hit songs as one of the popular Accra-based feminine musicians. Songs include “16 years”, “Slowly”, “Ekua”, “Adi Dede”, “Legelege”, among others. She’s currently out with “Tongues”, a song talking about love. Check the record out below.
