Politics nearly cost me my life – MzBel

Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, popularly known as Mzbel, has revealed that she faced life-threatening threats due to her endorsement of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during the 2016 elections.

During an interview with Caleb Nii Boye on Showbiz 92.7, the music icon disclosed that she will no longer lend her support to the NDC, a stance she had taken in the past, as her involvement in politics nearly cost her life.

The singer of the hit song “Asibolanga” explained that although she will continue to back the political party, she plans to do so in a different manner due to the experiences and lessons she has gained.

“I’ve encountered numerous challenges due to my engagement in politics,” she shared, her tone reflecting a mix of frustration and determination. “I’ve faced attacks while stuck in traffic, in my own home, and even on stage. I recall an incident where an adult woman pelted eggs at me while I was performing, all because of political differences,” MzBel recounted.

The artist behind “E dey bee” further unveiled her decision to heed the guidance of her dedicated fan base and stay true to her core identity as a musician and entertainer.

Inspired by her life-altering encounters, the 43-year-old songstress and entrepreneur has announced her intention to support her chosen political party through alternate means, steering clear of the intense scrutiny that previously overshadowed her involvement.

Bursting onto the music scene in 2006, her pioneering hit tracks such as “16 years,” “Awoso me,” “E dey bee,” “Asibolanaga,” and “Saucy Girl” evolved into anthems that resonated with individuals from diverse backgrounds across Ghana.

Her enduring impact goes beyond her solo work, as MzBel has also collaborated with esteemed artists like the late Castro, Debbie, Screw Face, and Quata, leaving an indelible mark on the music industry.

However, her influence extends beyond music. As an entrepreneur and global advocate for individuals with disabilities, she has used her voice to champion causes that transcend the spotlight.
