IT was just a matter of time before Tamy Moyo, Nutty O’s and Bulawayo’s Cal_Vin’s magic on stage attracted the United Nations (UN).
The world body has roped in the youthful music trio for their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under the UN Vision 2030 initiative.
After inking the UN deal, the three are set to release a new joint single — Leave Nobody Behind — influenced by the UN initiative which is aimed at improving life for all human beings across the world, mainly focusing on the least developed and struggling nations.
Speaking to NewsDay Life & Style yesterday, Nutty O said the deal will allow him to expand his market into the global world.
“It’s a positive song. As I always do music that is life-relatable in order for me to inspire and motivate people out there, with this song that we are doing for the UN project, I am just looking forward to expand my market and represent my region outside and looking at the bigger global picture,” he said.
Nutty O’s manager, Byron Kabaira, said the single addresses issues of human life and poverty in a number of struggling African nations.
“The primary aim is to eliminate poverty and especially increase the middle-class all over the world by 2030. While some of the goals seek to address improvement of human life, other goals focus on the interaction of human beings with the environment,” he said.
Kabaira said the general theme of the project was Achieving a Better Life.
The United Nations Development Programme Zimbabwe and Econet Zimbabwe are part of the project.
“Our brand thrives to be one of significant positive and inspirational impact to the multitudes of youths in Zimbabwe, Africa and the world at large. Working with such organisations elevates our hopes for the achievement of our dream fashioned around global brand impact in general,” Kabaira added.
The musicians are making waves in the industry after Tamy recently released her single Zviroto, which has been topping the charts in the showbiz scene and Nutty O is expecting a game-changing move with a catalogue of international collaborations lined up for next year.
