Mzvee, a stage name used by Ghanaian music diva Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda, has counselled young up-and-coming musicians to practice extreme patience with their careers.
The “Natural Girl” singer claimed that there are some dishonest people in the music business who are always eager to take advantage of musicians. She added that these people take advantage of new artists, use them, and then leave them because they (the dishonest people) always put themselves first.
The award-winning crooner advised these musicians in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Property FM in Cape Coast that up-and-coming musicians should be very patient and that they will find the right collaborators.
“When people ask me for music recommendations or other advice, I always tell them to be very patient. There are good people and bad people, as well as those who are willing to take advantage of you and use you before abandoning you because they are only concerned with themselves.
“Therefore, my advice is to always exercise extreme patience. You will eventually find suitable companions, but it is not simple. The market has fierce competition. You have to be incredibly patient to find the right people to work with because so many people go through so much just to get their names, their voices, and their faces seen.
