Veteran Ghanaian hip-hop artist Mzbel, born Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, has alleged that she is the pioneer of skimpy clothing in the music industry.
She claims that this initiative was initially reproached by so many Ghanaians who felt her style of dressing was inappropriate.
The ’16 Years’ crooner, however, said that she didn’t really care about these critiques because she didn’t see anything wrong with her sense of dressing in an interview on Cape Coast-based Property FM that was monitored by 1Family Radio.
“It’s true, I’m the one who started wearing short and skimpy dresses in the music scene because I don’t see anything wrong with it,’’ she said.
“When I entered the music scene, I didn’t learn; I just entered, so I did whatever I felt comfortable doing, and I got a lot of backlash.’’
She furthered, “But when things were changing and people began getting exposed, they realized that showing your thighs isn’t bad and those who can’t stand it should control themselves.’’
“Unfortunately, people didn’t understand it that way, but anytime someone will expose their body on stage or do something sexy, they say that Mzbel brought this thing, and that’s true,’’ she noted.
