 Zanie Brown lands NGO deal

 Zanie Brown lands NGO deal

By Staff Writer

Latest news reaching our desk indicate that singer Zanie Brown is one of the happiest after landing a juicy deal with an NGO over her latest song Muyaye

According to our trusted sources, Zanie was approached by a foreign NGO that is fighting against girls giving birth before the legal years and also keeping girls in school they wanted to use the song in their campaigns and hence they paid Zanie off

“She (Zanie) was contacted by the NGO about the song and she didn’t hesitate, they had a deal that is in 6 figures, she is expected to be doing tours with them in schools as part of the deal” a source told us

Muyaye is one of the warmly received songs of 2017, it was loved by many people because of its inspiration message that got them back on track and also backed it up with a breathtaking video which became the talk of the town.

We have been wondering why the diva has been on plane almost every weekend, doing shopping in Dubai, but this explains it all.

We will keep you posted
