Forgotten dancehall artist Nasty Trix, who found stardom with his hit songs Chidanger, Chimoko and DDF before taking a sabbatical, is bouncing back.

Ready for his comeback with a new album – Nasty Trix.
Ready for his comeback with a new album – Nasty Trix.

The 28-year-old artist, whose real name is Trust Dojiwe, told The Zimbabwean that he was kept out of the music industry by other interests in South Africa, but now was the time to be reunited with his fans through a major album.

“We are working on a 15-track album, called Tsaga era. It will be great and I hope to be reconnecting with my fans through the success of that collection,” he said.

The musician also revealed that some of the tracks on the album would feature prominent artists currently riding high in music circles.

He mentioned urban grooves hitmaker Madiz of the Handiende Kumba fame, Willom Tight and exciting crooner Diana Samukange as some of the artists to be featured on the album.

Nasty Trix was nominated for the ZIMA Most Promising Artist award in 2006, but lost to Bulawayo-based rapper Pozee, who was working with his sister, Skhu.

His music career dates back to 2002 when he hit headlines in the media after recording an album while still in secondary school. He then collaborated with Madiz to produce another scorcher soon after completing his O level studies.

Though Trix is banking on his old fans to help him rise to his former glory, he will have to shrug off challengers – dancehall artists such as Mawaya waya hitmaker Shinsoman, Killer T, Guspy Warrior and old dancehall horse Winky D.
