Tamy Moyo inks another deal
SONGSTRESS Tamy Moyo (pictured) recently inked a lucrative deal with a property developer, Membership Class Movement (MCM), a VVIP brand that specialises in events, celebrity promotions and lifestyle.
The talented 24-year-old was named brand ambassador of MCM VVIP at a glittering event marked by pomp and fanfare.
Only last year, Tamy signed another lucrative deal with Zimoco, the only official distributor of Mercedes-Benz passenger and commercial vehicles in Zimbabwe.
As brand ambassador of the country’s leading company in the motor trade, the Ndibereke hitmaker became the first person in Zimbabwe to drive the Haval Jolion vehicle.
And it appears there is no end in accolades coming her way after MCM VVIP picked her among the young crop of musicians to be ambassador.
“I am excited about the partnership with MCM VVIP because for once as artistes we are getting the recognition that we truly deserve and it’s amazing to be working with the brand,” said Tamy, who has over 248 000 followers on Facebook.
Apart from her ambassadorial role, Tamy will be featured at several concerts organised by MCM VVIP and the latest, slated for 22 October, is dubbed: #Business is pleasure at the Palms in Borrowdale.
“The show is designed to host business leaders, captains of industry, celebrities, socialites and the who’s who in Zimbabwe for a night of great entertainment and an opportunity to do business in a pleasurable manner,” Anthony J Mcmullen Jn, the chief executive of MCM VVIP, said.
Designed from a passion to see business and pleasure mixing in one place, the event will act as a platform to network, socialise and promote the Zimbabwean entertainment scene.
“As MCM we want to contribute to the wellbeing of the people of Zimbabwe in business by creating an environment that is pleasurable and yet an opportunity to pitch one’s value proposition in a relaxed manner.
“We are simply saying you can do business while having pleasure. Business is pleasure. The night is going to be filled with glitz and glam from the venue settings, sitting arrangements and a uniquely designed stage for all the performances,” he said.
Billed to perform are some of the best male artistes in Zimbabwe, including Nutty O who is riding high with songs such as Handipere Power and Open Doors, rapper Holy Ten and Ishan, who are also currently chart topping on all radio stations.
Tamy started singing at the age of seven.
While in Form One at Harare’s Westridge High School, she was handed her first ambassadorial role, with Childline Zimbabwe, joining no less a music luminary than the late iconic Oliver Mtukudzi.
Born Thamsanqa Moyo on 5 January 1998 in Harare, the youthful artiste performed at New York’s famous Madison Square Garden at the tender age of nine, marking the beginning of her journey in the industry.
She is the current best female artiste in Zimbabwe as of the 2019 National Arts Merit Award winner.
Tamy has done a collaboration with Jah Prayzah and has shared a stage with the likes of Mtukudzi, Mafikizolo and Joe Thomas.
The international market has also opened up for her, having performed at Coke Studio Kenya, Norway’s Oslo Festival as well as the Mother Africa Festival in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
As an actress, she is best known for her role in the 2020 film, Gonarezhou.
