According to a news release signed by the board and directors of Lynx Entertainment Ghana Limited, they, after eight years of successfully exploring the talent of their signee, there is a valuable need to alleviate the musician, MzVee off her duties to allocate her more time to reflect and peruse work done over the last decade.
This development comes at the back after there were series of rumours that her relationship with members at the label has gone sour. Others claimed the singer had gotten pregnant, went on a break to focus on herself and giving birth. Fans of MzVee have understandably had many questions about the artiste’s year long absence from the music scene.
Contrary to those rumours propagated by some fans of MzVee and entertainment enthusiasts in the country’s creative and arts industry, the talent management responsible for new artist recruitment and development (known as A&R), music publishing, and copyright enforcement stated in the News release that, MzVee went off the grid and took a sabbatical leave from active music to assess her output with the firm.
Boards and Directors of Lynx Entertainment Ghana Limited however expressed their gratitude to the Black Entertainment TV (BET) Awards nominee for elevating the record label’s brand to the highest level with her energetic performances, soul soothing musics and profitable deals won under during her tenure service with the firm.
Lynx Ghana Limited is an entertainment company established to encompass all facets of entertainment in Ghana. The company was founded as an expansion of the already existing record label, Lynx Entertainment, which has attained a credible reputation across Africa by churning out a host of successful recording artists and a large number of hit songs over the past ten (10) years.
The Lynx Ghana management team consists of vibrant and insightful employees led by C.E.O and Creative Director Richie Mensah, who is renowned for his works as a sound producer, recording artist and successful record label executive.
The artist management team has over 10 years experience in developing and managing artists such as Asem, Richie Mensah, Eazzy, Irene Logan, OJ Blaq, Zigi, MzVee, KiDi and Kuami Eugene. The artists managed by Lynx have secured hit singles across Ghana and beyond, and achieved reputable brand status.
The record label, Lynx Entertainment, is arguably the biggest and most successful record label in Ghana with multiple national and international awards and nominations to its credit.
However in a simultaneous news release signed by MzVee, the artiste recounted how amazing it has been working with the record label, revealing that, the last eight years with the firm has been an absolutely significant stride in the discovery and evolution of her personality and talent, as none would have been possible without the extraordinary help and support from Lynx entertainment.
She revealed that, in affirming her solidaritory to the firm, Lynx entertainment has contributed and played a pivotal role in nurturing her talent. She added that, the record label will always be the a strong pillar in the creative and arts career with the last eight years being with the firm has been an absolutely delightful and blessing.
The “Come And See My Mother” hitmaker urged all event organizers and corporate entities that will interested in booking her talents for events and business enquiries to communicate it through her official channels, i.e, her official business mail address, the new management number and her social media handles.
The songstress, one
the finest female acts on the continent, has several hit songs and awards to
show for her work in the last eight (8) years. In fact, some pundits dare to
call her the most successful female Ghanaian act in the last decade. She
has been under the tutelage of Richie Mensah from the inception of her career,
to the formative stages till now.
MzVee burst onto the Ghanaian music scene in 2012 as a lead singer of the girl band D3. She later launched her solo career with hit single ‘Borkor Borkor’ in January 2014; and went on to become the first artiste to win the ‘Unsung Artiste Award’ at the 2014 Ghana Music Awards. The feat was followed with the release of her career defining single ‘Natural Girl’. She went on to release more hits including Daavi, Come and see my Moda, Rewind, Sing My Name and Bend Down.
MzVee worked with Lynx Entertainment for 8 years during which she released 3 studio albums; Re-vee-lation (2014), Verified (2015) and DaaVee (2017) and served as brand ambassador for Beta Malt, Marie Stopes International, UNICEF and other notable organizations. It is important to state that the two parties have separated amicably and will continue to support each other.

NUDITY IN THE ENTERTAINMENT SECTOR: Destructive Or Constructive?
Nowadays, African superstars love to show skin, whether it's in a music video, on stage or on the red carpet. Lately, nudity has caused controversy and quite a number of explicit videos have been censored or banned. Critics say watching African music videos now is the easiest and unconscious way of turning yourself on. They are now a subtle instrument for seduction.
It’s no secret nudity sells. Most fans are excited to see nudes. Some African stars have also gone wild on social media adopting nudity as a strategy to gain popularity. What is more, this seems to have negative impacts on the younger generation. Sex tapes and nude leaks are a normal phenomenon amongst young people. Unfortunately, a few that can’t stand the shame after a scandal end up taking their lives. Also, video directors are getting more expressive and are coming up with explicit sexual contents. Gone are the days when nudity in videos are shown in abstract, today, directors give us all the obscene details that raise moral questions.
Some years ago, Nigerian Actress Christabel Ekeh dropped a bombshell online to add her name to the black list. Reports speculate she’s off upstairs, however, her family insists Christabel is sane. Popular entertainers such as Kenya’s Avril Nyambura and Boity from South Africa say their leaks were due to hacks, Desire Luzinda was little known in Uganda, but when her nude photos went viral, she became an instant hit. Dj Crème was famous in Kenya not for his disc jockey skills, but a 5-minute sex tape leak.
When she leaked her nude photos, Ghanaian singer, Deborah Vanessa claimed she accrued $8,000 for her leaks. Also, that of Ghanaian actors, Moesha Budong, Efia Odo, Jessica Larny amongst others broke the internet. According to Jessica Larny, who is also a model, “If going half-naked or doing these shoots will put food on her table which it does anyway, she will do it, since it’s a certified profession, adding that shooting semi-nude photos pays better than what she makes from acting in a whole year.
Though we live in a society that treats female public nudity as a moral offense or a cause for concern and discussion, but not as a source of non-sexual female power, others believe nudity empowers. Truly, female nudity has power, and majority can’t resist the gaze, but at the end, It’s about choice, and what you choose to do, whether it is for a campaign or protest, for art or simply self-expression or self-love. Well, there are powerful, provocative and intelligent ways females can use their bodies, without having to bare them, however, the big question is… has money become the ultimate goal rather than using creativity as a tool to fix the society?(FlashAfrica)

THE AFROBEAT INVASION: Has The Genre From Africa Put Jamaican Dance-hall Under Pressure.
Afrobeat is the new sound of Africa, and there speculations that the genre as put dancehall under pressure, as it continues to gain popularity worldwide. Afro-beats “take inspiration from its African roots and is combined with the sounds of rap, reggae/dancehall, and even RnB.” History suggests Afrobeat began in Ghana in the early 1920s, however, the term was coined by the late Nigerian music legend, Fela Kuti in the 1960s. Fela Kuti popularized Afrobeat within and outside Nigeria. An article published in the UK Voice last year stated Afro-beat is now "rivaling or even exceeding the popularity of Jamaican dance-hall" in the international market.
“Listening to then versus dancehall now, it's called the same genre but the beats now are so much different from what they used back then. Maybe what most persons define as dancehall sounded like one drop in the very beginning, then a synthesized kind of one drop, until it moved into a version a little different from that and a phase where it seems like soca had a bigger influence on it. And now Afro-beat is borrowing from dancehall, and vice versa,” says Renowned Billboard journalist Pat Meschino. Pat further adds that the fallacy that “dancehall is thriving in mainstream markets like the US may come from that fusion of the genres, which might see some persons identifying Afro-beat as dancehall.”
According to Sean 'Contractor' Edwards, head of Contractor Music Group in Jamaica, besides its enjoyable rhythm, which makes people feel good and want to dance, Afrobeat contains cleaner lyrics and a vibe to which people are drawn than dancehall. "Afrobeat has more melody to it than regular dancehall, so it's something that people can dance to, as well as the lyrics are more radio- and party-friendly. Many of them are love songs, not violent lyrics," he said. Though Sean acknowledges Afrobeat is popular now, particularly in dancehall strongholds, he’s of the opinion that Afrobeat has not taken over from the dancehall genre.
Prominent Jamaican record label owner, Julian Jones-Griffiths disclosed in an interview with The Gleaner, that many Afrobeat artistes are on the rise and the genre is being supported by the international market. And in the case of dancehall, few dancehall artistes and songs are being shown the same love.
"Davido, Wiz Kid, Burna Boy and many more have all signed with majors recently, and there has definitely been a rush to sign hot Afrobeat artistes by major label A&Rs (artistes and repertoire). There is not that same desire to sign Jamaican dancehall artistes currently," Jones-Griffiths revealed. "One thing I do see with all the Afrobeat acts is that they are very unified. There isn't that infamous 'crab in a barrel' mentality afflicting their industry that everyone bemoans in dancehall. They are also ahead of us in terms of streaming numbers on Spotify, etc. Streaming is a real issue for us. Spotify is not available here, and it seems that dancehall fans all over don't really consume the music in these platforms. We're falling behind in an area the rest of the world is leading," he added.
As Afrobeats continues to experience tremendous growth globally, Sean and Jones-Griffiths urge Jamaican dancehall artistes to push for collabos with afrobeat singers to achieve much success on the international market. Dancehall acts like Demarco, who featured Akon on his joint, “No Wahala”, Popcaan and especially Busy signal, who has the habit of cooking joints with Afro beat rhythms - Same Way, Expensive Order, Professionally, and giving mentions to Africa in his songs (Dolla Van, That’s how we Do it) have already set the ball rolling.
