10 Thirty

Multiple award-winning dancehall/ Afro-Pop artiste, MzVee, known in real life as Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda, has stated her readiness to release her brand-new album titled: ‘10 Thirty’.

The popular singer, at a private listening session organised to seek showbiz experts and industry stakeholders’ opinions ahead of the launch, announced that the album will be dropped today, June 24, 2022.

According to her, the title of the album, ‘10 Thirty’, connotes her 10-year span in the music industry as she turns 30 years old this June 2022.

The 10-tracks album features some of the best musical talents in the country, as well as the African continent, notable among them, is Yemi Alade on the track titled Dumebi, Kwesi Arthur – Flex, Kofi Kinaata – Winner, Tiwa Savage – Coming Home, and Stonebwoy on Pull Up. Others are Harmonize from Tanzanian on Something and Bella Shmurda on Abeg. The solo tracks include Fed Up, Turn Up, and Dzinam.

Touching on her absence from the music industry for a while and the hurdles she had to deal with, she mentioned that it was a hard decision, especially considering her background and the kind of music she wanted to do, coupled with the pressure to conform to certain immoral trends was difficult.

“My 10 years stay in the music industry had gone through numerous challenges, especially coming from a very strict home. That switch from being a church girl to being a musician doing secular music was very difficult for me, and I had to take time off to rethink my career and bounce back very strongly. It has been such a ride and a rollercoaster in my 10 years spell in the industry. I have met lots of good people and bad people pretending to be good people,” she said.

The 10 Thirty album will be her fifth album following the previous one dropped in 2020. And she is very optimistic that this compilation of dancehall and afro-pop/afro-beats, recruiting some of the greatest peers across the content who fit a particular genre, will make waves across the globe.

Distinguished guests present at the private listening session applauded her for her creativity and hard work pushed in by the team to produce such an all-around 10-track album. They also commended the 17-year-old talented Kizzy-Beat, who produced all the songs on the album.

Explaining the production process, she said: “It wasn’t an easy task at all, but of course, we knew from day one that it isn’t going to be easy. I recorded over 50 songs and it was narrowed down to 10 songs. I wrote some of the songs and this album is a very special one. I can’t wait for my fans to hear it”.
