Speaking exclusively to Briefly News, Priddy Ugly said he has always worked and collaborated with artists from Zimbabwe since the days he was at Ambitiouz Entertainment.

"People from Zim have always been showing me love. My DJ for one, DJ Sonas is from Zim, in Bulawayo. I have worked with some Zim-based artists when I was signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment back in 2017.

The star also attributed his recent popularity in the country to the collaborations he has done with Takura. He said his recent contribution to the Zimbabwean rapper's song Nightmares contributed immensely to his popularity.

"But I think recently, it's because I collaborated with Takura. I have done two songs with him in the last three or four years. We did a song in 2020 featuring myself and Tellerman, and he recently reached out and said he was working on a new album called King of Hearts, he sent me some references, and I hoped on it.
"So, ever since we worked on that song and I shared a snippet of my verse on social platforms, a lot of people from Zimbabwe have been showing me some love. So shout out to my people in Zim, I can't wait to come through."
