Zimdancehall’s 19-year-old Spucky B wins Sasai African Talented competition. Spucky B will receive the grand prize of US$10 000 after beating competitors from many parts of Africa including Nigeria and Ghana.
19-year-old Keith “Spucky B” Antonio was crowned the winner of the Sasai African Talented Competition which was launched in September, Newsday reports. Speaking about winning the competition, Antonio who said he started his music in 2014 said:
How I entered the competition it’s quite funny, I saw a flier on Sasai Facebook page, I downloaded the Sasai application and followed the requirements to participate in the competition.
When the results were announced, I was offline because I had no data, so I received calls from people congratulating me and then I realised that I had won and I almost cried.
Speaking about his music, the dancehall chanter said his dream is to meet WInky D:
I have released three albums namely, Anywhere released in 2016, Spucky Ndini Inini (2017) and Tayenda Chi-Bilateral (2018) and I believe that these albums gave me the experience which enabled me to win the grand prize. I participated under the music category.
This is just the beginning, I see myself rocking regional dancehalls. I am greatly inspired by Winky D. I have always been a fan of his since childhood and some of my fans say I sound like him. Apart from doing his music, Spucky B is a lower 6 student at Washington Hill High school.
