Powerpuff Girl Bliss will be voiced by pianist, producer, and singer-songwriter Toya Delazy. The accomplished musician announced her involvement with a picture of her in the recording studio. She was all smiles in the photo, which also included a Powerpuff Girls poster in the background.
The new five-episode Powerpuff Girl special will première at the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival on Saturday, October 7, in the Cartoon Network screening area located in the Kids Zone.
Delazy commented on Media Update: “I have always wanted to be a voice-over artist for a cartoon character. This has been something I have wanted to do ever since I was a child. Never did I think I would be recording a voice-over as the new Powerpuff Girl for Cartoon Network Africa though. It’s an honour to be associated with the campaign, and to represent Cartoon Network on the African continent again.”
In an interview with East Coast Radio she said first worked with the network when she did a theme song for them. She jumped at this opportunity when the call came.
The Powerpuff Girls is produced by Cartoon Network Studios, with Nick Jennings serving as executive producer and Bob Boyle as co-executive producer.
The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four premières on Saturday, October 21 at 8am CAT.
In August Delazy also released the music video for Kekeke, which is available for download on her site, itunes and YouTube.
