Ghanaian owned talents management, recording and distribution hub, Lynx Entertainment Ghana Limited and signee, Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda professionally known in the music world as MzVee have amicably agrred on terminating all healthy business engagements within their outfit..
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.

“I’m The Only Serious, Business Minded Artiste In Ghana. – Shatta Wale
Award-winning dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has explained that his constant criticism of his fellow artistes and for that matter, the Ghanaian music industry is because of his desire to see the industry thrive on the global stage.
According to him, the attitude and mentality of his colleagues do not depict people who are serious-minded and business-focused. In a television interview on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana programme, Shatta Wale said although his criticisms are hurtful, they are the hard truth.
“My criticism is for change in the industry; change of attitude and mentality towards our work. I believe most of them are not serious when it comes to music. People have sung since time immemorial and have made people see musicians as band boys and so we are not taken seriously.
“I’ve taken music seriously so when I see some artistes pretending that life is good for them, it makes me feel that pain. Osibisa was one of the successful groups globally. When it comes to my colleagues, we have not taken music serious,” he said.
Explaining further, Shatta Wale, known in real life as Charles Nii Armah Mensah blamed the media for compounding the problems in the music industry. According to him, the media has over hyped musicians and have created the impression that “they’ve made it.”
“Presenters make them feel swollen-headed even with a single song and so when they move out there they move with some hype and they think they’ve made it. I’ve been there before. When I came out as Bandana, that was the same thing I went through. But I was living in a single room and I wasn’t making money,” he said.
According to him, what hurts him most is that some of these musicians who are seen playing on the international stage are paid as low as £100 and £200.
“Some of these artistes are paid £100, £200. You’ll see this person is travelling and I go like, when you went there how much money did you make? Do not lie to the next generation. Do not let them feel like travelling and meeting people out there is the business. The business is how much money are you putting in your pocket? How much are you saving? Cos we are all growing…it’s a seasonal thing.
“I’ll grow one day and see that at this age I have to stop doing music so when I stop what am I going to do? So, I’ve started now, doing businesses here and there. If you think that this is going to be forever… that is why you find old musicians coming out and complaining and it makes me feel sad,” he lamented.
In 2018, Shatta Wale was billed to perform at the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Awards held at the Accra International Conference Centre but he failed to turn up.
Explaining why he did not perform at the awards, he said he had no contract with CAF and that he wanted to prove to them that “I’m a very serious artiste who takes his business seriously.”
“CAF didn’t sign a contract with me. They didn’t link any of my management team so when that whole thing came up I was a bit surprise that how come they would want to pay me some money without contract.
“It wasn’t because they paid my Nigerian counterparts more than they offered me. It wasn’t because of the Nigerians. I wanted to show them that this is a serious artiste who takes his business serious. If you wanna put me on a show there are procedures that you have to go through,” he explained.
In his opinion he is the only serious musician in Ghana and it was evident from his collaboration with American singer, Beyonce
“I’m very, very serious,” he said.
Asked if there was no other person in the industry he would consider serious, Shatta had this to say: “I don’t know who to mention. I can’t mention any.”
“What I’m saying now is the truth and it’s the hard truth. They will find it difficult to understand. All those names you are mentioning they are names that I have spoken to and I have educated them on how we should move this music thing,” he explained.
According to him, a serious artiste does not “chase” foreign artistes for collaborations.
“All those artistes you are mentioning are chasing Nigerian artistes. I don’t go chasing Nigerian artistes. They come to me. They love me for the work I do so they come to me with a good heart. It’s not just about talent. I take my business serious.
“When you know what you have, you’ll always sit down and wait for the right time. Like I waited for Beyonce’s collaboration to happen,” he added.
