Okay so I have to admit, MzVee is my own favourite Ghanaian artist, and not just because she is just so cute !!! But, there is one thing for me that makes her stand out and that is her belief in positivity and being so proud of being a “natural woman”. Two things that help her send such a great message to her fans and the people of Ghana.
