Mzbel and her father Mr Albert Amoah

Musician Mzbel says she is confused about the final funeral arrangements she should host for her father.

This is because some of her followers have discouraged her from holding a funeral for her father who was buried in accordance with Muslim tradition as was his wish.

But, Mzbel who said her family had approved of a “huge” funeral to be held, did not know which direction to take.

“I am lost and confused,” she wrote in her post on Facebook.

The singer’s father, who was a practising Muslim was buried on January 28 a day after he was announced dead.

But in a post on Facebook on Sunday, January 30, Mzbel announced that she and her family planned on having two funerals for her father – One in Ghana and another for the family in Manchester, London.

She stated that the family also intend on having a one-week observation. The decision to do so, she said, was made by her uncle.

Mzbel in her post wrote, “my Uncle has spoken! He is my daddy’s direct back born! Maame Ekua Bentuma Amoah. You are a princess 👸 Your Uncle is Nana Asare Oky3hen Yeboah I, Apagyehene, Nana of Ekumfi Nanabin Twidan Royal Family.”

“Again the Chief of the Mfanteman Association of the Greater Manchester UK. We will have a huge funeral back home in Ghana and here in Manchester! With my permission, you can go ahead with the one-week observation!”

But, her post attracted some views from her followers and the public. Many called on her to respect her father’s wishes not to organise a funeral.

Mzbel conflicted on whether to hold 'huge' funeral for late Muslim father

They explained that burying her father according to the Islamic customs was all that was needed.

One lady who goes by the name Hajia MJ Adams and reportedly a member of the NDC told Mzbel that there’s no better gift a daughter can give her late father than obeying his order.

“Thus no funeral, 3 days, 1 week or whatsoever. Honour ur father’s will and you will be blessed. Don’t try and go against his will as people are ordering you to. Kindly do as he says and you will be rewarded. But if you wish to please the world and reject ur father’s will, that’s ur business. May Allah continue to forgive, have mercy and grant Mr. Amoah Aljannah,” she wrote.

Hajia MJ Adams urged Mzbel to use the money she’d use for the funeral for a charity work of her choice.

But Mzbel in response stated that “Hajia at this point I’m lost and confused! 😭😭😭 my Uncle in Manchester, Nana Asare Oky3hen Yeboah I Apagyehene, Nana of Ekumfi Nanabin Twidan Royal Family. Again the Chief of the Mfanteman Association of the Greater Manchester UK wants us to honour my Dad with a funeral.”

The radio show host told Hajia to instead reach out to her uncle and channel her concerns to him.
