Meet M.G Hkh: A rapper on a determined journey for success


M.G Hkh, born Prince Peter Moyo on October 18, 1997, in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, is a Harare-based Zimbabwean rapper, songwriter, and automobile electrician. Despite being considered one of the city’s underrated talents, his deep lyrical content and proficiency in Shona have earned him a dedicated following. 

His affiliation with Heart Entertainment Magazine and the Hkh Family Group has significantly shaped his musical journey in an impactful way. 

Family Background

M.G Hkh is the son of Patrick Moyo and Norah Mutede. His parents played a significant role in his early life until their untimely deaths; his mother passed away in 2005, and his father followed in 2011. These events deeply influenced his emotional and musical development.

Early Life and Education

Born in Bulawayo, Prince Peter Moyo moved to South Africa with his family two months after his birth, seeking a better life. He grew up alongside his sister, Eunice Moyo, in a family of two children. He did his early education at Urban Deep Primary School in South Africa and Gororo Primary School in Zimbabwe. 

He completed his secondary education at Herentals Group of Colleges in Zimbabwe and later trained as an auto electrician at Manicaland Training for Enterprise Trust. And with this, he shows a determined resolve to make it in the music industry.

Musical Career

M.G Hkh’s music career officially started in 2019, performing freestyle rap at school events under the moniker “M.G The best Rapper.” 

His debut album, Pray Hard, released in 2020, emphasizes perseverance and spirituality. Despite struggling commercially due to limited promotional resources, his track Rufu Runopedza from this album, a tribute to his late parents, resonated with many.

In 2019, he joined the Hkh Family Group, founded by Mr. Potter Hkh, and featured in the song Chipo Changu. His collaborations and performances with notable Zimbabwean acts like Gze and Tehn Diamond have also helped him gain some recognition.

Personal Struggles and Inspirations

The loss of his parents deeply affected him, influencing his emotional and introspective musical style. M.G Hkh’s stage name originated from his childhood nickname, which he adapted to fit his professional persona. 

Before his music career gained traction, he endured a period of homelessness and financial struggles, often selling sweets and biscuits on the streets to fund his studio sessions.


His discography includes the album Pray Hard (2020) and the single track No Pressure (2024). M.G Hkh continues to influence his community through his music, advocating for resilience and faith. 

He remains an active figure in Zimbabwe’s rap scene, aiming to expand his influence and reach a broader audience.
