When MzVee went through depression a few years ago, she reportedly declined help from her record label, Lynx Entertainment, ghanaweekend.com has learnt.
This was revealed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah, in an interview with Caleb Nii Boye on 3FM.
“She left because of the health issues that she was going through. We tried to help her with the health issues but she wanted to deal with it on her own. Then she built a new team and started again,” he said.
Contrary to speculations that MzVee left Lynx because she may have had issues with the label or her label mates, Richie said she rather left due to health reasons.
“MzVee’s case was a very personal thing. She’s said it several times, I mean. The depression that she was going through really affected a lot of things. So I didn’t let MzVee go. One thing is, MzVee stopped music. Do you get me?” he said.

In 2019, MzVee (born Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda) announced that she had ended her 8-year relationship with Lynx Entertainment.
“Lynx Entertainment will always be a strong pillar in my career, and so it comes as no easy task to have to announce my departure from the label. Both parties have amicably consented with continuous support for each other to part ways moving forward,” a statement she posted on her IG page said.
“These 8 years with Lynx Entertainment, has been absolutely delightful and a blessing and I am glad we still hold our relationship regardless of our decision to part ways. I am eternally grateful. In this regard kindly note that all bookings and business enquiries should be thus communicated through my official channels, i.e. my official business email the new management number and my social media handles,” she added.
She later opened up on going through depression at a point in time. She said it was one of the reasons she took a break from music.
Since then, she has been producing her own songs including ‘Sherif’, ‘Hallelujah’, and ‘Coming Home’ ft. Tiwa Savage.
She recently released her 10:30 album.
