Since 2004 Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah known as Mzbel has dominated the female Hip-Life Scene.
Her controversial lyrics paired with her sex appeal on the stage have been a major hit with the Ghanaian youth. Hate her or love her, you cannot deny her ability to put forward the worries and burdens of the youths in Ghana.

Her sophomore album shot Mzbel to new fame.

The track was on top of many “Top Air Play” lists of many West African radio stations and stayed there for weeks, Soon Mzbel went from opening shows to headlining shows. Mzbel headed out on tour and performed in Togo, Liberia, Sierra Leon, Equatorial Guinea, Nigeria, Holland, Belgium, Italy, England and The USA.
