In 2015 as part of plans to celebrate a decade in the Ghana music industry, songstress Mzbel, born Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah launched the maiden edition of the show dubbed “Mzbel Red Concert”.
The show which took place at the National Theatre thrilled patrons to a live band music and a great stage craft from Mzbel as well as supporting acts on the night.
A year after, the show has been christened “Mzbel Rockz” as part of a grand scheme to impact society in more meaningful ways through music.
The team has decided to use the platform not only to entertain patrons but also to use it as a channel to sensitize teenagers and young adults within Jamestown community by equipping them with the requisite sex education.
As an artiste, Mzbel “believes strongly that by educating all young girls and by empowering those that are already out of school with employable skills, we should be able to curtail the prevalence of teenage pregnancies, skin bleaching etc. within the Jamestown community,” said Kwame Kusi, Mzbel’s manager.
The event will allow the team to throw more light on the need for proper sex education and to support identified young girls from Jamestown through an Education and Skill Acquisition Program.
Speaking at the launch held at the Alisa Hotel, Mzbel emphasized on the need to empower young ladies and reiterated her commitment to relief efforts aimed at the empowerment of the young people of Jamestown.
“Mzbel Rockz” is scheduled for Sunday, May 1, 2016 at the Bukom Square.
