Takudzwa Victoria Rosa known popularly as Tkay Maidza has been featured in the British Vogue. The Zimbabwean born, Australian based singer was taking part in a personality test that contained a lot of quirky questions. The feature follows another major moment in Tkay Maidza's career as she was part of the FIFA 21 soundtrack recently announced by EA sports. She features amongst many major artists like Stormzy, SIA, Calvin Harris, Dave, Burnaboy and Charli XCX to name a few.

The song featured on Volta, the FIFA soundtrack album is called Grasshopper and it's from her latest album titled Last Year Was Weird Vol. 2. It's the second instalment in a series of three albums from the 23-year-old artist and Pitchfork gave it a 7.5 rating after it's release. It features a mixture of alternative and mainstream sounds as the artist tells his story. In the Vogue feature, the artist was asked which song she never gets tired of reading and her answer was “Be Your Girl” by Teedra Moses. An alternative song that fits right into some of the themes brought out in Tkay's music.

Adding to the recent honours of the artists besides the Vogue feature and FIFA soundtrack inclusion, on 23 September Tkay Maidza was YouTube music's trending artist on the rise. There's no sign of stopping her momentum and it seems 2020 will only get better and better for the young artist. On Vogue's question of what painting she'd like to own, she replied
"I love Renaissance paintings a lot. Imagine having “The Last Supper” in your dining room! Iconic."
The Vogue personality test was very revealing as the artist said she'd like to be Tony Stark (iron man) if she could be any fictional character from a movie, series or novel and if she could live in another city it would be LA because she finishes a lot of her music there and that's where she even shot the music video for "Shook" and all it's a very productive place. Another revelation that would leave the culturally strong Zimbabweans shaking was her response to the question; "What's your signature dish when you're entertaining?"
She replied, "I honestly never cook, but I do a big takeaway order from Nando’s for everyone! I am a pro when it comes to that menu, so it always goes down a treat." 

Tkay Maidza has made long strides in her young career but it's only just a beginning, we're expecting so much more from the girl from Zimbabwe as she takes on the world.
