Politics made me lose businesses, friends – Mzbel
The Ghanaian singer Mzbel has admitted that she regrets her involvement in politics, which had a detrimental impact on both her personal and professional lives.
According to her, she did not get advice on how to handle politics as a celebrity and as a result, she used inappropriate words that garnered a lot of negative attention from the public and damaged her reputation in the nation.
The singer, who is a well-known NDC affiliate, announced that she has made the decision to stay out of politics and concentrate on both her businesses and her music career.
In an interview with JoyPrime TV for the GhanaWeb-reviewed CelebBiz show, she stated:
“I supported my party [NDC], and it was my first time coming out to say this and that, but I didn’t consult anybody about how it’s done or if it’s okay the way I’m doing it. I just went all out,” she said.
“I just went all out, and again, people misinterpreted me. I think some of the words I used in that context were inappropriate as well. I consequently received a lot of criticism and haters.
“I lost a lot of businesses and a lot of friends. Yes. So this time around, I’m trying to be very careful. I still love my party [NDC]. I will still support my party. I’m not going to come out.”
She claimed that her claim that she would not release a song until former president John Dramani Mahama took office again was just a joke.
“I was just joking. Recently, when I was pregnant, I did two songs, but it was just for people to laugh. It wasn’t something to make money or perform with. But now that the baby is out of the belly, I will start working music, said Mzbel
