On December 26th, 2020, Mzbel’s birthday was spoilt as she had one of her adopted sons, John, taken away from her by the biological mother.
According to Mzbel, who adopted John at age 3, his biological mother came for him because she had realized her son was now fit and had a future.
Mzbel Baby Daddy, Father of MzBel’s Son
The true identity of the father of Mzbel’s biological son, Aaron Adepa Amoah, has remained a mystery to date.
However, ever since Mzbel explicitly admitted on the ‘Delay Show’ — hosted by Delaoris Frimpong Manso aka Delay — that former boss of the defunct UT Bank Holdings, Mr Prince Kofi Amoabeng slept with her a lot of times; many have concluded that the former UT boss is the father of her son, Aaron Adepa Amoah.
Mr Prince Kofi Amoabeng has, however, in an interview on Joy FM refuted the claim that he has a son with Mzbel although he stopped short of mentioning whether he had something to do with the ’16 Years’ hitmaker in the bedroom or not.
Also, ever since Mzbel got very close to former president John Dramani Mahama and the NDC, and later an audio conversion between Tracey Boakye and herself popping up on the internet, alleging an ‘amorous relationship’ between Mzbel and the ex president, some have linked her son to the former president of Ghana, although without any basis.
