A 15-year-old Chinhoyi High School pupil displayed her musical prowess after putting up a scintillating performance at the just-ended Mashonaland West Provincial Agricultural Show, proving that only the sky is the limit to stardom.

The Zim dancehall rookie, VVKAY, born Natasha Petero, told H-Metro Entertainment & Lifestyle that she started music at a tender age, although her musical journey began last year.


She sings Afro Zim dancehall, gospel reggae and soul love meddlies.


Petero beganu who is now studying for her Form Two,  said the musical journey was not a stroll in the park.


Petero said she kept on asking for their blessings until they gave in after realising she had musical talent.


“I am yet to share the stage with established artistes. It’s my hope that one day I will be able to share the stage with Bazooka or Vanchoga,” said Petero.


She added:


“So far, I have written 33 songs, which include mostly love songs.”


Some of the songs include Rudo Rwechibhakera, Chandoda Rudo  Waimbenge Uripi, My People My Nation, and Chikomba Ndakuberekera, among others.


She gave credit to Boss Mikela for nurturing her to become a polished performer.


Boss Mikela is credited for helping Petero settle down as she records her repertoire at Fire Temple Sounds.


However, she bemoaned lack of sponsorship on female artists.


“Most music promoters assist male artistes as opposed to females. I am not sure where the bias emanates but this is surely pulling us down as female artists,” said Petero.


Petero dreams of following in the foot steps of musicians such as Selmor Mtukudzi.


She urged youths to desist from engaging in drug and substance abuse.
