Toya Delazy Voices Fourth Powerpuff Girl In African Version Of The Powerpuff Girls
Today (07/09/2017), it was announced that South African singer, pianist, dancer and performer – Toya Delazy has been announced as the voice of the fourth Powerpuff Girl in the sub-Saharan African version of The Powerpuff Girls. The five-part TV special which will feature the new character – “Power Of Four” will air on Cartoon Network Africa on Saturday 21st October at 7.05am CAT. According to unclear sources such as Channel24 and TV With Thinus, it implies that Toya will be voicing the fourth character in the international English version rather than just Africa however this seems unlikely because:
1. No press outside South Africa has reported that Toya will be voicing the fourth Powerpuff Girl.
2. The statement by Jaime Ondarza – The Senior Vice President of Turner Southern Europe and Africa says that we will find out more in October, the five part special airs in the United States next Sunday (17th September), obviously we will find out more about the new Powerpuff Girl before then.
3. No official statement from Cartoon Network USA or from another English-language version (UK, Australia etc.) of Cartoon Network.
4. Toya Delazy sung and produced the African Powerpuff Girls theme song, the theme is exclusive to Africa, this could be the same for the voice of the fourth Powerpuff Girl too, it’s been known before in English language dubs, an example is Jane Horrocks voicing the role of Queen Eleanor (instead of Wendi McLendon-Covey) in the UK variant of Long Live The Royals. Australia also has their own version of The Powerpuff Girls theme song too.
Also, I want to make a point about the new Powerpuff Girl, I’m fully aware about a certain leak circulating around on the internet months ago, but I won’t publish anything until Cartoon Network themselves has made an announcement.
