South African singer and songwriter Toya Delazy was on Thursday announced as the voice of the fourth Powerpuff Girl.
The KwaZulu-Natal-born artist will be the first black Powerpuff Girl to join Blossom, Bubbles and Butter Cup.
"[Toya] is confident, bubbly and quirky, all the [Powerpuff Girls] values that we are familiar with, love and appreciate," an executive at Turner Broadcasting, Jamie Ondarza, reportedly said.
The five-part series, The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four, will air on Cartoon Network later this month.
South Africans have taken to social media to congratulate the 27-year-old:
