Ghanaian Hiplife musician, Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah has shockingly revealed the reason behind her support for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Mzbel said, she became an NDC member after the NPP during the presidency of Ex-President John Agyekum Kuffour never accepted her but the NDC accepted her when they came to power in 2009.
According to her, the NDC believed in her brand and personality, the NPP didn’t when they were in power from 2001 to 2009.
The ’16 years’ hit-maker said firmly that she will give her utmost support to the NDC always no matter what.
“I will support NDC because of some support I got from them in the past. I have organized a lot of charity events where I got support from their government. Because when [former] President John Kufuor was then President, I had taken proposals to the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and so on but nobody believed in me, nobody wanted to associate with Mzbel because they think of me as a bad girl, they think of me as a bad brand.
“But when [late president] Atta Mills was in power before John Mahama, I got support to help people in Jamestown and to help the needy. I organized a medical screening and a lot more, so I felt like if I support them and they keep staying in power they will continue supporting my charity,” adding that she was sure many in the NPP did not like her because some said it to her face.
Mzbel advised her fans not to judge her based on what they read about her in the media. According to her, she is a nice person who just wants to live a normal life.
“Don’t judge me based on what you read in newspapers or what you read on websites and blogs. If you don’t hear it from me, then it’s not true. They should understand that celebrities are also human beings. We like to do silly stuff like they like to do. We like to take our phones and pull our tongues out and take pictures and be carefree, so sometimes they shouldn’t take these things too seriously, otherwise, it would not be fun anymore – we would be like robots, always faking.
