Cape Coast, October 21, GNA – Mercedes Haizel
Cobbinah known in the music circus as “Queen Haizel”, has affirmed
her love for nudity and will not trade anything for it.
According to Ghana’s freshest afrobeat
songstress, many people who openly criticized her “purposeful nudity”
often tend to admire her privately.
The Afrobeat music star with large following
from her home-city, Cape Coast explained that “going nude was her arsenal
which formed part of her strategy for putting her heartfelt messages to her
followers across the world.
“I don’t just go nude because others are
doing it, but for a purpose. The last one that gained much public outcry was to
immortalize my Mother who died mysteriously during the gas explosion in
Accra,” she revealed.
The 27 year old “tooli” songstress who
interacted with the media in Cape Coast as part of moves to promote her new
songs said, she was not perturbed by the vile propaganda, insinuation and
aspersions against her.
“Am not disturbed at all because I know
with time people would learn to understand me. It’s show business. I am capable
of doing many things but our culture, tradition and happenings in the industry
has restricted me.”
“This is nothing new and am not the one
reinventing the wheel of nudity in Ghana. Traditionally, some women go nude to
curse others. Through that, they achieve their aims,” she said.
She described herself as Ghana’s finest female
icon with unique matchless voice and proud to be a plus size with unique style.
The energetic, dynamic and versatile
songstress projected herself as a queen in everything she does and ready to
introduce something different to Ghanaians who were stuck on same genres for
On the intense competition in the music
industry among female artistes, she said “I’m in no competition with any
of my fellow ladies.
She said, she respect every musician. They
should not be threatened by her works but support each other and work in unison
to move the industry to its highest peak.
Queen Haizel is poised to be the first ever
female songstress to walk home with the ultimate VGMA Artiste of the Year
