TAMY Moyo is without doubt Zimbabwe’s number one diva today.
The gorgeous 23-year-old is a singer and actress with a reputable brand built over 14 years.
Bearing testimony to Tamy’s standing is her newly-launched partnership with another very strong brand – ZIMOCO.
ZIMOCO, the only official distributor Mercedes-Benz passenger and commercial vehicles in Zimbabwe, on Friday unveiled Tamy as brand ambassador of the country’s leading company in the motor trade.
On top of being ZIMOCO’s brand ambassador, the Ndibereke hitmaker becomes the first person in Zimbabwe to drive the stunning Haval Jolion, which she was presented with at a well-attended event at ZIMOCO’s immaculate Sam Levy’s Village showroom on Friday morning.
The term “game recognises game” couldn’t be more appropriate, as Tamy herself aptly put it in accepting both the vehicle and her ambassadorial role.
“I’m deeply honoured and excited for this wonderful partnership between two strong brands, ZIMOCO and Tamy Moyo,” she told a cross-section of invited guests.
“I’d like to thank ZIMOCO for allowing me to carry their brand with dignity.”
Tamy, indeed, knows all about dignity. It’s precisely the reason ZIMOCO didn’t hesitate to partner her.
Manfred Chaniwa, the company’s Business Development Manager for Passenger Vehicles, said they decided to partner Tamy because the is a wonderful role model – graceful and classy – just like ZIMOCO itself.
“Today we are here to unveil two great brands, the official appointment of Tamy Moyo as the ZIMOCO brand ambassador and the launch of the all new Haval Jolion which is the vehicle we will be handing,” Manfred said.
“We are proud to be working with this young and ambitious lady whose brand resonates with the ZIMOCO brand and speaks to a wide spectre of the market. As we expand our product line, ranging from high end vehicles to everyday practical and affordable vehicles, the partnership between ZIMOCO and the Tamy Moyo brand will bring great synergies as we expand our market.”
Tamy is young, and she doesn’t take for granted what she has achieved thus far in her career. She’s not selfish – seeing the success of other young people is something close to her heart.
“Let this (ZIMOCO partnership) be the opening of doors for more corporates to support young artists,” she said.
“I want to be a bridge between young people and ZIMOCO, as well as other movers and shakers.”
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 artist 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 artist in Zimbabwe as of the 2019 NAMA Merit Awards.
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.
