Ghanaian songstress Mzbel has blamed her downfall in the music industry to some strong media personalities.
According to her, Mark Okraku Mantey and some media personalities sabotaged her brand which made her unable to win any award in Ghana.
The ‘legelele’ hitmaker revealed that Mark Okraku Mantey and another media personality made sure that she was omitted in any award scheme.
She further added that they were not in support of her brand and anything that would have benefited her brand was boycotted by them.
She also indicated that she lost so many gigs and endorsement deals because they disliked her brand.
According to the mother of two, her hit song ’16 years’ was branded as a bad song by Mark Okraku Mantey and some entertainment analysts.
Mzbel revealed that the only reason her ’16 years’ song which became a major hit in Ghana and Africa could not earn her any award in the country was because Mark Okraku Mantey was part of one of the award scheme.
She asserted that although Mark Okraku Mantey didn’t want her to achieve any feat in the music industry, she is proud because she has done a lot for herself.
“My sabotage started from way back which was started by two strong guys in the media because they didn’t like my brand. One of them works at Multimedia and they made sure that every award scheme, I was taken out. Anything that will glorify and benefit the Mzbel brand, they make sure that I am cut out.
I lost so many gigs and endorsement deals because they said I was controversial in a negative way. It was serious sabotage. When I did 16 years, I was 23 years and it was just a song. See this amazing song that went everywhere, it was huge in almost all the African countries but I didn’t win an award for it in Ghana, because these same people, Okraku Mantey is one of them.
They sat on the radio and analyzed the song to the point where it looked like a bad song. If I meet him today, I will walk away without saying anything because he didn’t want me to achieve anything but I have done a lot for myself” Mzbel said in a recent interview.
