Retired singer Mzbel has detailed who deserves to be called a celebrity and who does not come close to wearing that crown.
The ’16 Years singer, in her statement, backed the words of PRO of Ghana National Gas Company, Ernest Kofi Owusu-Bempah that most people on social media are so called celebrities but do not deserve that title.
Mzbel in an interview said; If someone should be called a celebrity the person must earn the title but right now the moment someone becomes popular on social media we start calling that person a celebrity,”t. “It’s not every popular person that’s supposed to be called a celebrity but unfortunately that’s how they’re treating it here.”
“But in our time when we started music, social media wasn’t there so for you to get an opportunity on radio or TV or appear on a front page of a newspaper, your works must have gotten to a level that makes you deserve that privilege. So you have to earn the title of a celebrity but right now it’s like that social media makes people celebrities overnight and turn back to say all these people call themselves celebrities” She said on Kastle FM.
She added that social media has made it common for anybody who performs music and release videos to call him/herself a celebrity because of their following.
