Our Own Toya Delazy Is The First Ever Black Powerpuff Girl

Go girl.


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.
