Controversial Ghanaian artist and open supporter of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mzbel, has revealed that sometimes the celebrity life is not all it's chalked up to be.
According to Mzbel - born Belinda Nana Ekuah Amoah - the life of a celebrity isn't always filled with fun. Speaking on the Drive Time on Joy FM with show host Lexis Bills, she related that a celebrity's life in the spotlight tends to interfere with their private life.
She said that life in the limelight sometimes gave the false impression that everyone knows everything about you, even though that doesn't always turn out to be the case.

“It’s never easy to be a celebrity. Everyone wants to get into your privacy. People think they know you but they don’t. I think it comes with the job…” she said, almost exasperated.
Mzbel also took the chance to dispel popular rumors that she's a "street girl". Although she admitted to having been in a relationship with a married man once upon a time, she stated that she was unaware of the fact that the man in question was married.

"Beginning you don’t know they are married. He didn’t lie, I never asked and he didn’t tell. It started nicely, I started digging and realized he was with someone. He wasn’t the ring type…” she explained.
With this week being the City of Accra's maiden Independent Social Media Week, it was almost fitting to have the former controversial songstress give advice regarding the use of social media.
MzBel urged the youth to be circumspect on social media, saying, “People don’t know you but how you put yourself out there will be how you will be adjudged. Be careful…” she said.
