Ghanaian songstress Mzbel has finally opened up about why she never reported her former manager who physically abused her.
Speaking in a recent interview Mzbel explained that her manager who was also her boyfriend was beating her anytime she talked to other people. She however made it clear that he brought her to the limelight hence the reason she couldn’t report him.
“I was old but he was very old. He was like, I think, thirty-something years older than me but he was nice, he was kind. He was the daddy I never had. He was my producer, my man, my best friend. He was there. He gave me luxuries I never had.” Mzbel disclosed.
Mzbel added that, his attitude towards her changed when she became a big deal in the entertainment industry.
“He got jealous because now everybody wants a piece of Mzbel and he blocked a lot of my shows. When I get gigs from London, he wants to go with me and they say okay, this is a low budget show, you can’t come, but we’ll take care of her. He’d cancel the show. He wouldn’t let me go anywhere alone. He wants to check my phone calls, my messages all the time.” She added.
Mzbel continued that “And if I cannot tell him why this person is texting me this or that, he will beat the hell out of me. If I take off my wig right now and you check my forehead, I don’t have any hair there anymore. I used to braid my hair. When he’s beating me, he’d just grab my wig and throw me on the floor.” she narrated.
The 16years hit maker added that she couldn’t report the abuse because he brought her out of nothing and turned her into the super star she is now.
She however advised artistes never to date their managers as it ruins a lot of things.
