Winky D, Holy Ten Collabo: "Winky D Must Be Banned From Performing In Zimbabwe"

Winky D, Holy Ten Collabo:

The Economic Empowerment Group (EEG), a Zimbabwean empowerment lobby group founded by Mike Chimombe after he was relieved of his post as Affirmative Action Group (AAG) president, has said Winky D must be banned from performing in Zimbabwe.

The group accuses the Dancehall chanter of dabbling into politics through music, especially the song Ibotso he collaborated with hip hop artist, Holy Ten.

At a press conference held this Tuesday, the group said Winky D’s music promotes hatred instead of building the nation as promoted by President Mnangagwa in his “Nyika inovakwa nevene vayo mantra.

The song is from Winky D’s album titled Eureka.

Meanwhile, Linda Masarira who leads the opposition Labour, Economists and African Democrats party (LEAD), says Winky D and Holy Ten have a constitutional right to express themselves through music. Her Twitter post seen by Pindula News reads:

I am a big fan of @winkydonline & @holytenmusic I will not allow them to be bullied by anyone for expressing themselves through music. Freedom of expression is a constitutional right enshrined in section 61 of the constitution of Zimbabwe. I have an ask, pane pavakanyepa here? (did they lie?)

The song speaks about the social ills prevalent in Zimbabwe. It also attributes the hardships faced by the common man in the southern African nation to corruption by political elites “who steal from the powerless masses” (vanodya zvavapfupi nekureba).

The duo has faced persecution to the extent that Holy Ten, born Mukudzei Chitsama, has said he is regretting working with Winky D in Ibotso. He cites the sensationalisation of the song by commentators, mainly journalists, and activists.

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change spokesperson, Fadzayi Mahere has said “An artist’s social commentary on the state of our society & the lives of citizens is not” hate. She added:

The attack on art is regrettable indeed. We need new leaders.

@,,,,dottt needs to be reminded that in a democracy it's not a crime to push for regime change as long as it's done constitutionally I know that you are a d-u-m-m-y but I think that's too basic for you not to know That's why opposition parties are there If you don't agree with Winky D's message then don't listen to his music That's what we call tolerance and maturity Don't choose for us what we should or should not listen to

Hands off music


We have had about many big wings corruption involvement on the press but they walk free, now a musician is expressing what he sees happening in our society through his music... y'll now raising their voices against him.
and this political party that says let's ban him from performing in Zimbabwe, what contribution have they done to the society.

ZIMBOS murikuita noise about Eureka ibhotso song, why didn't you make noise when you hear about corruption being done by some.

kamfana aka Holy zero karikuratidza kuti kamfana with that statement how can you say you regret the collaboration while ma you agreed at first to collabo.

thus lack of professionalism mfana your music is borring disgrace to the music industry

Winky hs a right to express his views. Infact l respect him for the courage. If his music is to be banned then let's ban Jah Prayza, Sandra Ndebele and other Pro ZANU PF singer. Or maybe the standards change whn singers criticise

It's sad that Zimbabweans don't know what is politics. Politics is life, a living person cannot be excluded from politics because that would mean they don't eat, breath, travel, do shopping, it's just not possible. Anyone who is alive is actively involved in politics every time.
Denying a person political involvement is denying them life

Those foaming at the mouth and calling for Winky D to be banned from performing in this country are myopic.

Music is always political. A musician expresses his political persuasions through music.

It is wrong for people to say all musicians must sing [ NYIKA INOVAKWA NEVENE VAYO ]

During the war of Independence, Thomas Mapfumo and others chose to sing in praise of liberation war fighters while others sang against the war liberators.

restriction on artistic expression, either by individuals,political parties or govts, is one of the blatant infringements on human rights.

Honestly l think that criticism is not a bad thing it's a reminder of how to improve the way your doing things .If Winky D had made a comment on the political situation in zim it's important for our leaders to digest it and try resolve.We all know no leader can admit failure but se vakuru vedu it's something to take and analyse and think about .If you can't see it take ma herbs and start meditating .🦁#lion of teranga
