Award winning Ghanaian female sensational artsit MzVee is edging the government to come to the aid of the artists in Ghana because they have huge expenses to take care of.
The musician noted that the industry players have suffered some setback since the outbreak of the pandemic due to their inability to feature live shows.
Speaking in a interview with Nana Kwesi Asare on the Big Show on Classic 91.3Fm on Saturday, 15 August 2020,MzVee said :"I have had some few gigs,I have been paid for,so that's lucky for me but what about the rest.
And I don't know what the government is trying to do about that because at the end of the day,we(entertainers) are the people who keep life going in this country.
"And we are always entertaining people,we are always playing free shows for people,doing free endorsement for people but this is a time where we are struggling and there's no help coming in like that for us",she bemoaned.
She was also of the opinion that no matter how luxurious entertainers have lived in the past,they still need the support of the government is the era of the pandemic.
"They(government) should still support because the money cannot stay the same forever,money comes and goes and we keep spending and our expenses are actually a lot and we spend on videos,we spend on a lot of money on a single video,it's a lot of money;we spend on keeping up appearances because it's show business,so we spend a lot to get back all we get.
"So right now things are not going on well,they (government) should not think that there is money around,so they(government) need to support the artists.
MzVee is currently promoting her single "Baby".
