Mzvee

, a Ghanaian artist, has explained how she persuaded her parents to let her pursue music despite the nature of the industry and how performers fare after being famous.

MzVee revealed during an interview with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM’s Ekwansodwodwo segment that her parents’ animosity for musicians stemmed from the fact that they assumed most musicians were involved in drugs and prostitution owing to the nature of their employment.

“My parents thought that when you start singing that means you will do drugs and for the lack of a better word you will become a prostitute. They didn’t hear anything good about it so they didn’t want their daughter to be a part of it”, she said.
