MC Troy drops tune for Miss Zim

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

Gone are the days when we used to cel­e­brate Hol­ly­wood women. It is now time to com­mem­o­rate our own, and Bu­l­awayo-born hip-hop chanter Den­nis Matogo (24) who is known as MC Troy in mu­sic cir­cles re­cently dropped a scorcher of a song ded­i­cated to the reign­ing Miss Zim­babwe beauty pageant Belinda Potts.

This song also gave him an op­por­tu­nity to embrace the beauty of Zim­bab­wean women.

“Ba­si­cally this song came about af­ter the 21-year-old Belinda Potts from Masvingo won Miss Zim­babwe and I was in­spired that no mat­ter which part of Zim­babwe you come from you can dream big and achieve your goals.

“What I can say is this song gave me an op­por­tu­nity to embrace our own beauty, than to rap about for­eign women, why should we sing about Hol­ly­wood fe­male char­ac­ters and not give our song ti­tles from our own,” he said.

He also said he is happy be­cause be­fore he pro­ceeded with the song he had to seek her per­mis­sion.

“Be­fore do­ing this track I had to fol­low the pro­ce­dure, so I had to re­quest her, sent her the demo and she agreed and I worked on it, he said.

The ded­i­ca­tee for the song loved it.

“What made me happy is that Belinda loved the song and she ap­pre­ci­ated the sup­port that I gave her and it is not only loved by her but women as a whole and in this track I fea­tured Msizkay, pro­duced un­der HitEmHard records by Skido and Freak,” said Matogo.
