Togbe Afede Denies Mzbel

The Paramount Chief of Ho Asogli State, Togbe Afede XIV, has dissociated himself from the controversy over the arrest and detention of popular artiste, Mzbel, known in private life as Mabel Akua Amoah. Togbe Afede has told The Herald newspaper that he does not know Mzbel and has never seen her in anyway.

He also said that he did not in any way intervene or try to intervene for her release of the songstress and her accomplices when they were arrested about a fortnight ago, for traffic offence. Mzbel and two others were arrested for allegedly assaulting a policeman who, in the course of his duty, tried to arrest them for a traffic offence.

Her arrest generated some mix feelings, and police sources at the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU), reportedly told the Herald newspaper that among the people who called to have the girl released was Togbe Afede XIV, but he has denied any involvement in securing bail for Mzbel.
