Musician cum radio presenter, Mzbel has blamed her inconspicuousness in the music scene to the ‘pull her down’ campaign started by Mark Okraku Mantey and some media personalities aimed at her brand.
She also added that despite her contribution to the growth of the music industry, she has not won a single award to show for it and it’s all because of Mark Okraku Mantey, who happens to a member of the VGMA board sabotaged that.
Mzbel who is clearly not happy that she’s not celebrated despite of 15-years in the industry further added that her brand was subsequently affected by the the negativity Mark and his ‘squad’ initiated against her.
“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.
