Speaking on Accra-based TV3 monitored by, the musician explained that her mental disorder, which affected her gravely, reached its peak when she lost her romantic relationship because she became less sociable.


Though I was content, I am human and have problems. You know when things happen to you personally, unfortunately, there is a spill over that affects everything. I was super depressed for two years, 2017 and [20]18 so I did pull away and it affected my relationship with people, work, family and even my [intimate] relationship, she confessed.

MzVee also revealed that her fellow female artiste, Efya, was her little hope when her back was against the rope.

Efya, whom she described as a sister, became her psychologist in her trying period because she could relate to her situation, especially being a victim herself.

She explained that despite the challenges, depression made her realize how strong and confident she could be.
