Ghanaian singer MzVee has admitted that she had problems while with Lynx Entertainment managed by Richie Mensah.
Earlier, she had downplayed claims that problems at the record pushed her to leave.
In a recent interview, the singer disclosed that she had problems at Lynx Entertainment before departing in 2019.
However, MzVee was quick to add that it was her depression that pushed her out and not the problems.
“No every workplace has problems so I won’t sit here and pretend that there was no problem. There are problems everywhere, there are problems at home, at work, everywhere there are problems so yes definitely back and forth anytime but we always found a way to come to an agreement but the reason why I left was that I just couldn’t contain the depression.”
The ‘Natural Girl’ hitmaker said she told her boss then, Richie, that she was leaving music entirely because she could not stand it anymore.
“In 2019, I took a yearlong break from music but I didn’t know I was going to come back. The depression was very serious so with all the thinking all that came into my mind was that I was going to stop the music because I was just done. I wasn’t even thinking straight then. All I knew was that I was not ok so I just needed time off so I just went off the scene”
“I’m the type of person who doesn’t speak up much, I don’t share my thought with people because I’m very to myself. When I was growing up my mother will say Vera you, I don’t know what you are thinking. I can come from school straight to my room, I was very by myself. Secondary School, from dormitory to class.
“It’s just how I’ve been because growing up we were in a very strict home and we weren’t allowed to have friends and play around so I was antisocial so sharing my thoughts with people is not something I never knew how to do so anytime I had a problem, it was all on me and then it compiled to a point that it was just driving me insane”.
“The only person I could talk to was Richie. So as for Richie in somewhere 2017 we had the discussion and I told him that I think I will be stopping the music soon because he knew I was going through something. So 2018, end part of 2018 when I told him I’m going to stop, he was like he knew it was coming so that was it. He didn’t want me to stop but that was it”
MzVee returned to the music industry in 2020 and has so far released three singles with music videos.
