Over the past 11 years or so, Mzbel (@mzbelmusic) undisputedly one of Ghana’s most relevant female artistes has not failed to deliver year in year out. Prior to her two year maternity induced hiatus, the sultry songstress gave us hit after hit and is well remembered for her top of the charts songs 16 Years, Awoso Me among others. On her return to active music, her recent singles including Legelege and Slowly continue to receive rave reviews.
In the year 2015 as she sought to celebrate her tenth [10th] year in the entertainment industry, Mzbel launched the MzbelRockz Charity Event. Previously christened Mzbel Red Concert, she in consultation with her team renamed the event to reflect the new focus and direction which takes a direct line approach to helping the people of Bukom. Through this initiative, Mzbel reaches out to the community of Jamestown, where she spent her formative years.
Held on Sunday the 1st of May at the Bukom Square, this year’s edition saw Mzbel and a team of Medical Practitioners, held a free Medical Screening Camp, which also served as a platform for knowledge sharing on healthy lifestyle choices.
When asked what had inspired her to undertake such a venture, Mzbel iterated her genuine concern for the people of Jamestown and remembered fondly what her own days growing up in the community were. Most importantly she expressed the conviction that only a healthy people can live happily and that she wants her people to be happy.
As teams from Metropolis Healthcare, Boban Alternative Medicine Centre and the Divine Group International attended to the over Seven hundred adults and about two hundred children, a team gave out products from organisations that had donated toward the event including Frytol, Yazz, Indomie, Rush Energy Drink, Dr. Malt and Verna Water.
To crown it all in the evening of the same day, Mzbel and a host of musicians, a mix of established and many up and coming acts, treated the people of Bukom to an amazing music experience. Act after act including performances by Keche, Wisa, Choirmaster, Shilo, Tinny, Gasmilla, Adane Best, Fimfim and others, the crowd a great sea of fans chanted on in excitement.
As Mzbel the main act came up on stage, spotting a free flowing white robe, she looked amazing and when a bevy of voluptuously endowed female dancers came along, the crowd went hysteric. Song after song she delivered a great performance. As typical of Mzbel, she did not fail to pull out of the crowd, a male fan and to engage him in a dance.
Speaking to some members of the community and other beneficiaries who had travelled from as far as Aflao, they expressed gratitude for Mzbel’s benevolence. “As we draw the curtains on MzbelRockz 2016, we look forward to a more amazing event come next year; God willing” said Kwame, Mzbel’s business manager as he filed questions from a select group of journalists and bloggers.
