Sensational Ghanaian musician, Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, known popularly as MzBel, says late Ghanaian artiste, Ebony, was the modern-day version of her.
The musician made this claim in a recent interview she had with Graphic Showbiz. In the interview, Mzbel said she will remember the ‘Sponsor’ artiste for her bubbly smiles and her being a genuine person.
“She was genuine, she was so real and I would say she was the modern day MzBel. She came as a queen and died as a queen.” Mzbel stated.

Mzbel was off the music scene for a while and tried to bounce back into the industry but things haven’t been smooth enough for the ‘sixteen years’ singer.
Like Ebony, Mzbel was often criticized for what she wore on stage, and in her music videos during the prime of her career.
She was sexually abused on stage by students during a performance at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Mzbel was also attacked and raped at her Weija home years ago but it didn’t elicit any sympathy from people who swore she deserved it especially with her style of dressing and behavior.
Ebony died after she was involved in a gory accident on the Kumasi–Sunyani road on February 8, 2018 when she was returning to Accra from Sunyani. She died with her childhood friend and personal assistant, Franky Kuri, and a military man who was alleged to be her bodyguard, Lance Corporal Atsu Vondee.
