Ghanaian singer MzVee known in real life as Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda has revealed the good experience that comes with being recognized as a celebrity. However, she also pointed the common challenges that come with the same title.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye, the ‘Daavi’ hitmaker, MzVee who recently confirmed to have suffered from depression, was quizzed on Cape Coast-based Kastle Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com about the difficulties involved with being a celebrity. MzVee responded “Definitely being a celebrity comes with a lot of pressure. Because you being in the public eye, you almost don’t have a private life.
People are looking at everything you’re doing and you always have to be upbeat and happy. “You can’t have a dull moment because you go somewhere and someone who has been watching you on TV for so many years who loves you will see you and want to say hi. They expect you to be happy, smile and say hi but so you can’t be sad,” she shared.
After making a successful comeback, the former Lynx Entertainment signee has been able to grab 3 nominations in the Album of the Year, Music Video of the Year and Reggae/ Dancehall Song of the Year categories at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2021.
She further revealed on Kastle Drive “There’s no day that you can be sad, every day you have to be happy because the minute you show that you’re not happy or you frown your face or something they think you’re not being nice, but you’re a human and you also have problems. “But because you’re in the public eye you always have to be smiley and there’s no moment for you to be down. So it’s a very difficult job, it’s very difficult to be a celebrity,” she disclosed.
