The Ghanaian musician Mzbel has been transparent about how becoming famous has changed her personal life and prevented her from engaging in activities that she used to enjoy.
She feels as though her independence has been taken away from her because of her celebrity status, which has forced her to act in a certain way in order to appease the public and avoid criticism.
”It’s good when you’re well-received by others sometimes. For example, I felt both happy and uneasy when I was recognized by strangers when I visited the UK. I was content at that moment. I wish I wasn’t Mzbel, though, because that’s when you want to eat and feel free, and everyone is staring at you like they want to know how you do it. How is the spoon taken by her? She swallows in what way? It’s strange. I can envision
There are moments when you need to use the restroom in public and everyone is snapping pictures of you. Additionally, you don’t want to use the restroom because others are curious, she stated in a JoyPrime TV interview that was broadcast on 1Family radio.
Mzbel went on to say that she benefits financially from her famous status and that this has allowed her to expand her business.
I wish I was a normal person. I don’t enjoy fame. No one will claim to have done this or that. I won’t be the subject of lies from others. People won’t search for me but want to harm me. But it’s good when you’re earning money. You hang out with somebody for a few minutes, and it’s a lot of money.
I own a business; therefore, I am aware of the monthly compensation my employees receive. However, you’ll go hang around and just sit there like Mzbel, earning a hundred times more money than someone else would in a full month. That’s lovely, but it comes with a price.
