Controversial Ghanaian singer, Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah known in showbiz as Mzbel has said Ghanaian artists will soon turn to Jehovah Witness members, going door to door promoting their songs.
Speaking to host Ayisha Bayipa on SVTV Chat which airs on SVTV Africa, Mzbel said, the music industry is getting worse as days go by, as a result of that, she is sure Ghanaian artist will someday turn Jehovah Witness members going around promoting their songs.
‘‘Some years ago promoting songs in Ghana wasn’t that difficult, all you have to do is just go and sing as an artist and make your big money, however in recent times, you have to literary beg people to play your songs and even beg people to listen to your songs, trust me artists will soon turn to Jehovah Witness members going door-to-door just to promote their songs’’
Mzbel explained that, even though social media is here to stay, she feels someday people will be fed up with social media and that will result in artists going door to door promoting their songs.
On whether artists are making enough money currently, she replied ‘‘we are not making enough money from the music anymore unlike years ago when you make money after releasing the song, now unless you play shows’’ She noted.
Asked whether she has been receiving royalties she replied ‘‘ Yes I use to receive royalties in Ghana but I no longer do it’s too stressful, I now receive royalties from Ivory Coast and other countries.’’
Mzbel, the “16 years” hitmaker over the years has been known for her controversial statement and actions and it appears she won’t be changing anytime soon.
The Singer is out with her single ‘‘Super Man’’ which she says is different from all her songs.
