Zimbabwe: Phreshy Is Back With New 'Hot' Song

Upcoming Kwekwe-based hip-hop musician Precious Herschneider Frank, popularly known in music circles as Phreshy , has unleashed a "hot" single titled Amai.

Phreshy said the song, which was produced by Tash Manhize, was a dedication to her mother who brought her up single-handedly.

"The song is dedicated to my mother and all single mothers out there. It is very hard to raise children as a single parent, so I wrote the song to highlight what my mother went through in taking care of me and my siblings. I'm going to pay her back when I'm settled," she said.

A student at Great Zimbabwe University where she is studying towards a Geography and Environmental Science degree, Phreshy said locally, she was inspired by DJ Naida and internationally by Nicki Minaj.

"I am so into hip-hop, that's why I am a fan of Nicki Minaj. I love everything that I sing, but my favourite song is from my debut single titled Muri Two, which I collaborated with Promics and Blue Jay," she said.

She said her demanding college tasks were the reason why she was yet to release an album.

"I try to manage school work and music, but it is challenging. When I focus more on school, I stop recording and this is the reason why I have not released an album," she said.

Phreshy fell in love with music at the age of 12 years because music was part and parcel of her upbringing. She started writing her own music in 2013.
