The singer says she has the right to endorse any political party because of her status as a Ghanaian citizen...
Ghanaian hiplife musician, Mzbel has clapped back at critics who blasted her over her Mahama endorsement last week.
The musician who is well-known for her very provocative style of dressing and sexual innuendos in her music said in a statement that her critics are hypocrites who pretend to be patriotic.
According to her, she has the right to endorse any political party because of her status as a Ghanaian citizen and did not understand why people will “rain insults” on her person.
Check out the full statement below:
It is a shame to see people insult, ridicule and attack my personality just because I was bold enough to voice out my political opinion to endorse H.E. President John Dramani Mahama. Are these not the same hypocrites who preach about peace and political participation?
Why rain insults on others because they disagree with your political views? Aside the insults and ‘name-calling’, there is also a fabricated story on some websites with the caption “Nana Addo is not sexy at all, and will not win my vote –Mzbel” ….
This is not only false but very sad to see trivial minds who call themselves journalists use falsehood and misleading quotes just to drive traffic to their irrelevant sites. I have not and will never attack other people’s personality because of their political stands.
I don’t have a problem if you disagree with my choice and political opinion, but Instead of taking the time to insult, say false things and / or misquote me, you should rather focus on sharing your views, declaring your stand and respecting others’ political decisions. It is a disgrace to our nation if we continue to act in such manner and I say; Enough Is Enough! Signed Mzbel. Member # celebrities For Mahama.
The musician has received a lot of backlash and criticisms from Ghanaians after she came out to endorse President John Mahama together with a group calling itself “Celebrities for Mahama” with the aim of garnering votes for the president in the 2016 election.
She joins a list of other celebrities including Abeiku Santana, John Dumelo, Mr. Beautiful, Kalsum Sinare and Amanzeba who have endorsed the president.
