ZIMDANCEHALL chanter Tocky Vibes, real name Obey Makamure, was forced to change the name for his newborn baby after irate nurses refused to sanction the name that he had chosen.
Tocky had named his son, Chamakuvangu, after an album he did last year.
However, the nurses at the clinic protested against the name and informed the musician that they were not going to write the name on the baby’s card.
The affable musician did not take this to heart and renamed the baby after himself, calling him Obey Junior.
Speaking to online publication, the musician said nurses protested the ‘weird’ name.
According to Tocky, he had named his “heir” after last year’s album, Chamakuvangu until nurses protested against the name.
“I had named him Chamakuvangu but manurse akabva azviramba ndikazongomuti Obey Junior Makamure (nurses denied the name and I had to settle for Obey Junior Makamure),” said Tocky Vibes.
In her pregnancy stage, earlier this year during the January violent protests, Tocky’s wife survived a possibly fatal setback as she was caught up in a teargas crossfire involving the citizens and soldiers with the uniformed forces attempting to quell the violent protestors.
The incident inspired Tocky to pen Soldiers Diss-track.
Meanwhile, Tocky Vibes is set to release his fourth studio album titled The Villagers Money by end of this month. The album has two volumes with the first one already in circulation.
