Ghanaian songstress, Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, well known as Mzbel, has revealed how politics has affected her music career.
The ’16-Years’ singer told Grandmaster Murphy in an interview monitored by www.newshuntermag.com on Todays Radio that her involvement in politics had a negative impact on her music business.
According to her, these are some of the reasons why she decided to take a break from the music scene and concentrate on other brands.
“My affiliation in politics affected me in a way, it will be painful to record a song, promote and you won’t get any show to perform at…so I am doing different things now,” she stated.
Mzbel also explained why she doesn’t want to actively campaign for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) like she used to do.
“The way things unfolded last year, I don’t want to involve myself in it too much because people take politics too personal,” she lamented.
Mzbel further stated that she is supporting in a way, but she doesn’t want to disappoint or hurt anybody’s feelings.
The popular songstress, who has about five (5) albums to her credit, disclosed that her other ventures are taking much of her time these days—hence the break from the music scene apart from the effect of politics on her musical career.
