Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
According to MzVee while she was at South Africa to shoot the music video for her 'Baby' hit song, she and the team were robbed at gunpoint.
Recounting the ordeal in an interview on 3FM, MzVee said when she and her team arrived at South Africa, they went to a shop to get a few things they will need for their stay in South Africa.
Unknowing to them, they were followed by armed robbers who robbed all the cash they had on them after they left the shop.
She said despite the fact that she nearly abandoned the fantasy to shoot the video, the individuals in her group persuaded her to remain strong.
"The song I just released has a fascinating story attached to it. I shot the video in South Africa and when we got there we were robbed. After we had left the airport, we dashed into a shop to get items we will be using for our stay in South Africa . After we left the shop, some people were looking at me someway. I don’t know whether it was because of the bag or something but they followed us and robbed us of all the dollars we had on us. All the money I was going to use for the project was taken including our passports.”
“I had to meet the video director for the first time and make some payments but we had to meet at the Police station. When we were coming, we had to use the Police Statements. They stopped us at the airport and we were there for a very long time before we were allowed passage. I must say that the people around me motivated me. I could feel they were worried but they had to put on that smile to spur me on,” she stated.
She added that despite that major setback, they were able to shoot the video and it is currently on YouTube.
YEN.com.gh earlier MzVee had been seen having a chat with rapper Edem while they both posed for the camera.
MzVee was seen wearing an all-white shirt and trousers with black heels and sunglasses to match.
Edem was also seen wearing a jeans shirt and jeans trousers to match. Both musicians wore beautiful dreadlocks to make the photos complete.
However, the photos caught the attention of awarding-winning Nigerian music star Tiwa Savage who dropped a beautiful comment under it saying the photos are "cool".
