Ghanaian singer, Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda popularly known as MzVee, has recalled her high school experience and how she chose to study Home Economics due to laziness on her part.
According to her she thought it would be the easiest way to acquire a second-cycle education.
However, later did she realise that the practical component of the course consumed so much of her time that she couldn’t read her books, making it one of the toughest things to do.
In an interview on Prime Morning on Tuesday February 21, 2023, she said the experience taught her lesson that nothing good in life comes easy.
MzVee stated that she later lost interest in the course, but it was too late to make any changes, so she did her best to graduate.
“I picked Home Economics because I was lazy. I didn’t want to learn. I came to understand that it is one of the toughest things to actually do. Because the practicals consume so much of your time that you are unable to read your book.
“It was tough, and that’s where I learned my first lesson, nothing in life is easy. Everything is difficult. So far as you want to succeed at it, it is difficult”, she said on Accra-based Joy Prime.
Talking about how she found herself doing music, MzVee said she was influenced by a colleague in high school to join a girl’s band, dubbed ‘D3’ in 2012, which became the genesis of her music career.
According to her although she never planned to pursue a career in music, she was discovered by Richie Mensah, who liked her voice after she went to the studio with her colleague, Samira Burai.
“That’s the shocker because I didn’t plan on doing music. I literally just stampeded upon this blessing. I didn’t send myself to see any producers”, she explained.
MzVee is collaborating with Redding-ton Chalets to host an “Independence Concert” on March 4, 2023, at Whuti in the Volta Region.
