After saying goodbye to the label that discovered her, Ghanaian afro-pop songstress MzVee has grasped her first award at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
Legally known as Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda, the “Sheriff” singer received three nominations; “Best Reggae Dancehall Song of the Year,” “Best Music Video of the Year,” and “Album of the Year.”
And on the industry night held on Friday, June 25 at the Accra International Conference Centre, she won one category, “Best Music Video of the Year,” with her music video for “Baddest Boss” featuring Mugeez of R2Bees fame.
Upon receiving the award, she thanked her management and fans for supporting her career.
MzVee has had a roller-coaster journey after parting ways with Richie Mensah’s Lynx Entertainment – the same label which houses Kuami Eugene and KiDi.
Last year, MzVee told Nana Ama Macbrown on UTV’s United Showbiz that she quit Lynx Entertainment due to depression.
She said parting ways with Richie’s label was not because of internal wrangling, as speculated earlier, but the real issue had to do with depression.
