Mercedes Haizel Cobbinah known in the music circus as “Queen Haizel”, has affirmed her love for nudity and will not trade anything for it.
According to Ghana’s freshest afrobeat songstress, many people who openly criticized her “purposeful nudity” often tend to admire her privately.
The Afrobeat music star with large following from her home-city, Cape Coast explained that “going nude was her arsenal which formed part of her strategy for putting her heartfelt messages to her followers across the world.
“I don’t just go nude because others are doing it, but for a purpose. The last one that gained much public outcry was to immortalize my Mother who died mysteriously during the gas explosion in Accra,” she revealed.
The 27-year-old “tooli” songstress who interacted with the media in Cape Coast as part of moves to promote her new songs said, she was not perturbed by the vile propaganda, insinuation and aspersions against her.
“Am not disturbed at all because I know with time people would learn to understand me. It’s show business. I am capable of doing many things but our culture, tradition and happenings in the industry has restricted me.”
“This is nothing new and am not the one reinventing the wheel of nudity in Ghana. Traditionally, some women go nude to curse others. Through that, they achieve their aims,” she said.
She described herself as Ghana’s finest female icon with unique matchless voice and proud to be a plus size with unique style.
The energetic, dynamic and versatile songstress projected herself as a queen in everything she does and ready to introduce something different to Ghanaians who were stuck on same genres for decades.
On the intense competition in the music industry among female artistes, she said “I’m in no competition with any of my fellow ladies.
She said she respects every musician. They should not be threatened by her works but support each other and work in unison to move the industry to its highest peak.
Queen Haizel is poised to be the first ever female songstress to walk home with the ultimate VGMA Artiste Of The Year award.
