Ghanaian songstress and entrepreneur, Mzbel, known in private life as Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, has raised a debatable topic.

Sharing her view in a recent interview with Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM which Newshuntermag.com has come across, Mzbel stated that not every popular person on social media deserves to be called a celebrity.

She averred that social media makes people celebrities overnight nowadays.

Meanwhile, there are works to be done before one can attain celebrity status.

The ’16 Years’ singer recounted the hard work they put in their works some years ago before you will be spotlighted.

She stressed that the celebrity title must be earned.

“If someone should be called a celebrity the person must earn the title but right now the moment someone becomes popular on social media we start calling that person a celebrity.

“It’s not every popular person that’s supposed to be called a celebrity but unfortunately that’s how they’re treating it here,” she posited.

“But in our time when we started music, social media wasn’t there so for you to get an opportunity on radio or TV or appear on a front page of a newspaper, your works must have gotten to a level that makes you deserve that privilege.

“So you have to earn the title of a celebrity but right now It’s not like that social media makes people celebrities overnight and turn back to say all these people call themselves celebrities,” Mzbel further stated.
