“I Was Only Trying To Say Chillspot Contributed To Zimdancehall Becoming Popular” – Fantan Says




Popular Chillspot Records co-founder Dj Fantan, real name Arnold Kamudyarirwa, has said that he was misinterpreted in an interview last week. Fantan distanced himself from reports in which he was said to have claimed that Chillspot records introduced “Zim dancehall” to Zimbabwe. He also said that he was not trying to diss Winky D or any other artist.

Speaking to H-metro, Fantan said,

Dancehall music in Zimbabwe was there well before Chillspot Records, but never was it really known as Zim dancehall. The term could have been there, yes, but it was not popular.

All I was trying to say was Chillspot contributed to the term “Zim dancehall” becoming popular. People should know that I was not bragging, but I was trying to answer the presenter in the best way I could…I am not looking for any fights in the game…I want to create a better relationship with everyone in the game.

The popular DJ also paid homage to early pioneers of dancehall culture such as Major E, Booker T, Innocent Utsiwegota, Potato, Winky D, and Sniper Storm among others.
