Sultry Ghanaian musician Belinda Nana Akua Amoah known in showbiz circles as Mzbel, seems to be in some hot waters after she had the somewhat ‘endorsement gone wrong’ fling the past few days.
Mzbel, during the 2016 general elections, threw her weight behind the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and in a circulating video, she was seen attacking the personality of the president elect Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, the then flag bearer of the main opposition party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In the video, she belittled Nana Addo’s aim of becoming president and asked the general public not to vote him into power. She said Nana Addo wasn’t a presidential material and therefore vowed to leave the shores of Ghana to Burkina Faso to set herself a business if Nana Addo won the election. mzbel-online
Few days after Nana Addo’s declaration as the new president elect, she has had thugs believed to be supporters of the NPP storm her home. In an interview (she granted a journalist whose name is yet to be identified), Mzbel, in tears, lamented how she was threatened by these unknown youth to apologize to Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo or face their wrath.
Although she was willing to apologize as of that time, Mzbel had begged the public to spare her life for she is the bread winner of her family. On AM Pluzz hosted by Sammy Flex on Pluzz FM, he sought for the candid opinion of renowned movie producer and director at Movie Africa, Socrate Sarfo who had also been on the NPP campaign platforms, on the matter.
Socrate condemned the attacks and labeled the act as uncalled for. He further went on to advise the various supporters of the NPP who indulge in these acts to put a stop to it because their leader Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo is a unifier. Although unfair to attack, to him, it is okay to tease the NDC’s.
As demanded by the thugs for an apology from the songstress, Socrates Sarfo says he cannot force Mzbel to apologize for what she isn’t ready for, but advised the youth to desist from the use of vulgar words on the elderly no matter the offense the latter may have committed.
