Ghanaian Hiplife Artiste, Belinda Nana Akua Amoah, popularly known as Mzbel in the entertainment industry, has given birth to a baby girl and has released a short documentary on the prenatal and postnatal stages.
The artiste, who stunned Ghanaians a few weeks ago with her baby bump photos, has given birth to a baby girl whom she calls Ohemaa at the Metropolitan Hospital at Gbawe, Accra.
The sequential videos merged into a short documentary featuring the time she was due for labor, where she said, “Time Aso oo!!” and mentioned that she had about less than an hour to put to bed.
It follows the cleaning of the amniotic fluid and blood from the baby right from the womb, where an open cut was seen around her tummy. The baby was later presented to her, and the father of the child, though absent, welcomed the new baby with a flower bouquet.
In an interview with a Youtuber on his channel Obibini TV, the artiste was elated about her new birth as she posted, “for to us a child is born, to us @baby_ohemaa1 is given and the government will be on her shoulders… forever grateful”
She affirmed that the baby she had put to bed was real and not a joke. She mentioned it wasn’t one of Shatta Michy’s April fool pranks where she wore a silicon belly that matched her skin tone, thereby deceiving Ghanaians.
Mzbel said she knew her baby was going to be a girl since she had conducted a scan to know the child’s sex, and she needed a girl to balance the gender once she had a boy already. She remarked that she kept receipts of the female clothing and mother care stuff she bought and told the vendors she would return them for a change once the gender of the baby took an unexpected turn.
She, however, did not disclose the date of her child’s birth because of her spiritual inclination and how social media is no longer safe. ‘Ohemaa’ was the name she gave out as her daughter’s name once the naming ceremony has not been done to officially give her a name. She ascribed meaning to the name Ohemaa,” saying she is a queen, following the inquiries they had done. She stated that she would have come out with the name, but following how the social media scene has become, she wasn’t going to put valuable stuff about her out there.
“I don’t want anyone to know the date I gave birth. I am into spirituality. I have understood spiritual stuff so it is not everything you post on social media. Social media is not just a place for fun, there are powers and other stuff there so the day I gave birth no one knows but I have given birth” she said.
She reckoned how Yvonne Nelson’s relationship was marred by netizens who digged into the personality of the man who was responsible.
She also debunked people’s claims that she wasn’t pregnant and stated that, she was dressed in certain clothes that did not reveal the pregnancy, and she always had a bottle she spat into, which many did not observe. Nonetheless, her family and workers knew she was pregnant.
Mzbel further advised Ghanaians not to put their valuable information on the internet since she wasn’t going to do that for anyone to disrespect her man. She deemed the identity of the father of her child personal, which no one should be interested in. “I won’t put my peace of mind outside. My relationship, things that matter to me are the things that matter to me” she said
Concerning the naming ceremony, she revealed that, she will be named following conventional cultural rites, not in a church, and that as a traditionalist, she will uphold Ghanaian culture since the father of the child is also a traditionalist.
“I have accepted Ghanaian culture. I am a Ghanaian I’m not white; I see Christianity to westernism. Once I am a Ghanaian, I will name her traditionally, and it will depend on her father who is also a traditionalist”.
