Ghanaian singer MzVee has revealed that she was robbed in South Africa when she travelled with her team to shoot a music video in the country.
According to her, the robbers took away huge amount of dollars, their passports and other belongings.
She said upon their arrival, they dashed into a shop to get some items they will need for their stay in South Africa for a week while they shoot her ‘Baby’ music video.
But unfortunately, they were followed by some armed robbers who took away monies they had on them after they left the shop.
“The song I just released has a fascinating story attached to it. I shot the video in South Africa and when we got there we were robbed. After we had left the airport, we dashed into a shop to get items we will be using for our stay in South Africa but after we left the shop, some people were looking at me someway”
“I don’t know whether it was because of the bag or something but they followed us and robbed us of all the dollars we had on us. All the money I was going to use for the project was taken including our passports”, she said on 3FM.
MzVee added that they reported the matter to the police after losing everything they had.
The singer noted that she had wanted to give up on the shoot but she was motivated by the people around her.
“I had to meet the video director for the first time and make some payments but we had to meet at the Police station. When we were coming we had to use the Police Statements. They stopped us at the airport and we were there for a very long time before we were allowed passage. I must say that the people around me motivated me. I could feel they were worried but they had to put on that smile to spur me on”, she stated.
The artist is currently promoting the music video for the song titled ‘Baby’.
