Ghanaian dancehall star, MzVee, has been nominated in a new BET fan-voted category that will celebrate rising stars from across the channel’s international footprint.
MzVee is nominated alongside South Africa’s Cassper Nyovest, Uganda’s Eddy Kenzo, the United Kingdom’s MIC Lowry, George the Poet and Novelist in the viewer’s choice ‘Best International’ category.
BET announced the new category on Facebook.
MzVee has produced several hit singles including Borkor Borkor, Natural Girl and Dancehall Queen.
She is signed to the award-winning record label Lynx Entertainment and was the winner of the New Artiste of the Year award at the 2015 Ghana Music Awards.
Mzvee was born in Accra to Ernest Hamenoo-Kpeda, a businessman, and Florence Hamenoo-Kpeda, a caterer.
She has 2 older sisters and a brother and attended St Martin de Porres School in Accra in her early years.
She first burst onto the Ghanaian music scene in the summer of 2012 as the lead singer of Lynx Entertainment’s girl band D3, which released hit singles such as ‘Good Girls Gone Bad’ and ‘Gyani Gyani’.
The band, however, split at the end of 2013 due to educational commitments of the young group members.
