Robberies have not stopped him!
Bulawayo-based underground gospel rapper Trevor Sibanda (stage name Mahcoy), has been robbed several times of his studio equipment, but that has not stopped him.
The first robbery was in 2016, and he lost his laptop which he used to record and keep his project and he was left with unmastered music on his external hard drive.
Still recovering from the wounds, in 2018 thieves pounced on him for the second time.
As if that was not enough, last year on the Christmas Eve, thieves paid him a visit and he was stabbed on his tummy in his studio while trying to fight back.
He almost lost his life.
By God’s grace, Mahcoy has been given a second chance and he has successfully released an Extended Play (EP) titled Ndinofamba naJesu.
On the EP, he collaborated with talented hip-hop artistes Monster and Zvanuwa fashion maestro Mr Kata.
He is looking forward to attracting more collaborations and also doing visuals for some of his tracks.
“My comeback to the industry has a huge change that is quality and more experience. My prowess in music has changed because I have become mature than before,” said the rapper.
“As for next year, I will be releasing two solid albums and I promise my fans and followers that they will get more good music,” said Mahcoy.
He prays that his released EP gets an award as it is strong and many people from different walks of life can relate with it.
He no longer does freebies.
“I am no longer interested in doing free gigs as shows are my source of revenue. I am looking forward to gaining sponsorship which will improve the quality of my music,” said Mahcoy.
