HIPLIFE ARTISTE Berlinda Nana Akua Amoah, known in showbiz as Mzbel, has said it is compulsory for an artiste to lead a flamboyant lifestyle.
The award-winning female artist backs her statement that because of the high standard fans literally set for celebrities, they tend to always hold whatever celebrities do in high esteem.
She continues that being an artiste, one needs not to dress and live like a regular person because the musician is assumed to have got to a stage where it is above the standard of regular people.
Defending her claim, the controversial musician added that the fans would always hit hard on any artiste who wears fake stuff and lead unappealing lifestyle.
“The moment you become a star, your standard of living changes, the least thing you do goes viral so you have to present yourself in the best suitable way before you appear in the limelight.”
Mzbel, however, said the music industry is not lucrative as it used to be.
According to her, artistes only get money when they play shows and star in adverts or when their songs are being used for promos.
“There are a lot of rich artistes around but they don’t invest in music because they think you may outshine them, which is wrong. So one has to solely strive for his or her own greatness in order to make money,” she told Kasapa Entertainment host, Kojo Preko Dankwa, on Kasapa 102.5FM.
