After her course at the GIL and a stint with Manifold Tutorial College, she earned an internship slot with GBC Radio 1 where she hosted a children’s programme “Mmofra kyepem”. From GBC Radio 1 she joined Groove FM, [now Adom FM], as an intern and co – hosted a child focused programme titled ‘Kids on Groove’.
Haven worked with Groove FM for a while, the pursuit of higher laurels led Mzbel to TV3 as a production assistant for one of the station’s youth centered programmes known as Goldblast. She worked also as floor manager for same and also as a production assistant for another programme “Talking Drum”.
In the year 2002, Mzbel had the opportunity to work with Hush Hush Studios, which at that time had come on the scene as a new production firm. While at Hush Hush, she sometimes would be asked into the studio, and as the technicians played their instruments, she sang along, songs she had created. These were songs she would usually sing to herself with no serious intention of pursuing a music career. While working part – time at Hush Hush Studios, she secured another job, at Metro TV as the only digital video editor and also producer for ‘Smash TV’, a weekend entertainment programme.
From Metro TV she was employed by Apex Advertising as a video editor and production manager. She had to combine Music and her job roles at Apex, and when she found the two overly demanding, Mzbel chose to give the music the full span of her attention. Over time, she has been criticized for her choice of clothes which have been described as “sexy” or “skimpy”. in her own words, Mzbel believes however that as an artiste you must look unique. She has always had the ambition to be a source of inspiration to the under privileged and to be able to help the down trodden.
