POY to release Nothing for Mahala


LOCAL hip-hop artiste Nicholas Muchinguri, aka POY, is set to release his third album titled Nothing For Mahala  at the end of August.


The 16-track album includes a love song Prince Charming, Impilo and Yebbo.
POY worked with producers from Botswana and Zimbabwe on  the project.

The track Yebbo was produced by Face the Music Records and Botswana producer SlimCash.
The song has enjoyed good reception by the public after performances at different night spots.

“After a long time composing serious songs, I just felt like singing a feel-good and fun song for people to enjoy and dance to. Yebbo has proved to be a party anthem,” POY told Southern Eye.

The Mabomba hitmaker worked with local upcoming artistes Kasi Lunatis, Khaya, Young Stan, Warfresh and Pronix.
He also worked with renowned artistes Po’Zee and Mjox on a track titled Bulawayo La.

“Many of my songs mostly relate to real life experiences, from times of struggle to times of joy. In the song Blow My High I talk about a time in my life I was crazy and playing with drugs,” POY said.

POY has five albums to his name, among them 15 Minutes of Fame and Babylon System.
POY was born in 1980 and went to high school at Plumtree High School. He won the
People’s Choice award at the first Zimbabwe Hip-hop Awards in 2011.
