Winky D proves his class

HARARE - Self-proclaimed Ninja President Wallace “Winky D” Chirumiko used the Zim Dancehall Shutdown 2013 Concert at the Harare Gardens on Friday night to demonstrate that he still remains the undisputed king of the genre.

Against the backdrop of unrelenting claims that Winky D’s dancehall throne is under serious threat from dozens of promising artistes sprouting all over the capital city, the Ninja President had to summon all his potency.

Clad in red and black ninja gear, Winky D took to the stage at around midnight and immediately thrust into top gear with the yesteryear hit Ninja Christmas.

With the big crowd urging him on and singing along, Winky D dropped a string of his popular dancehall hits turning the Harare Gardens into one noisy venue.

The ninja president ended his animated performance by singing his hit of the moment Mafeelings Pamangoma that encourages unity among artistes.

Several other dancehall artistes also wowed the fans including Freeman whose act preceded Winky D’s closing performance.

Freeman, who is currently riding high on the popularity of his hit Doctor WemaGitare, probably delivered his best performance in a long time.

Another star entertainer on the night was Dadza D who once again hogged the limelight with a well-polished presentation.

The highlight of the Prince of Fire’s act was his performance of his 2010 hit song Magetsi Aenda that won the applause of the animated crowd.

Other lively performers on the night included Guspy Warrior, Lady Squanda, King Shady and popular DJs Garry B, Smiley and Godfather Templeman.

Meanwhile, a number of Zimbabwe’s top reggae artistes will converge at the Mbare Netball Complex this afternoon for a gig organised by the Friends of the Warriors dubbed “Good Morning South Africa.”

Artistes on the bill include Mic Inity, She Calaz, Nadine Brown,S oul Jah Love, Kinnah and Jah Child.

The concert is meant to raise funds for Zimbabwean football fans who will attend the Chan 2014 football tournament in neighbouring South Africa next month.

Yes, I do not deny the fact that Winky is under stiff competition, but the truth is he has the talent. He is at the meantime King of Zimbabwean Dancehall. Big up Ras Winky.
