Controversial Afro-pop songstress, Mzbel has admitted to the fact that former president Mahama’s defeat in 2016 has affected her music career.
Mzbel campaigned for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the lead up to 2016 general elections, where she even released a couple of songs for the party.
Mzbel came under heavy criticism after her party NDC could not retain power and was booted out by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the 2016 general elections
According to the “16 Years” hitmaker, she has been affected by the defeat and change in government because she no longer gets the opportunity to perform at corporate events like she used to when NDC was in power.
Mzbel who was speaking on Kumasi-based Kessben FM said: “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. 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”.
At the moment, she is promoting her new controversial single, “Tongues” which is making waves on radio stations and in various clubs.
