Police Disrupt Winky D’s Chitungwiza Performance While Holy 10 Performs Ibotso In South Africa

Winky D, a popular Zimbabwe musician whose real name is Wallace Chirumiko, faced controversy during his first live show since releasing his contentious album Eureka when members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police ordered him to stop his performance at the Blue Roof in Damview, Chitungwiza on Saturday evening.

The disruption occurred when Winky D attempted to perform his latest song iBotso, which led to violent skirmishes on stage and angry reactions from the audience.

The album’s songs denounce social and political injustice, corruption, and economic hardship, leading to accusations of promoting a regime change agenda.

Holy Ten, a hip-hop artist who collaborated with Winky D on the song Ibotso, expressed regret and claimed the song was being dragged into partisan politics.

The album also drew fierce criticism from Zanu PF officials, including a call for a ban on Winky D’s music by the Zanu PF-affiliated Economic Empowerment Group.

Ironically, Holy Ten performed the same song Ibotso while on stage in South Africa.

His fans sang along Winky D’s part while Holy 10 sang the verses.

Opposition activist Makomborero Haruzivishe has aired out concerns about police disrupting Winky D’s show.

@PoliceZimbabwe
for singing Ibotso hit song in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe last night.

2. Second frame contains video of Holy Ten performing the same Ibotso hit song in East London,South Africa last night.

3. This is pure evidence that Holy Ten was forced by fear of ZanuPf to publicly ‘regret’ featuring in Winky D’s #Ibotso hit song that criticizes corruption in Zimbabwe.

4. Truth is Holy Ten doesn’t regret featuring in the Eureka album otherwise he wouldn’t be performing that song live three(3) months later.

5. Zimbabweans love that song & ZanuPf hates that song because they are corrupt.

6. Minister of Sports and Arts industry Kirsty Coventry will never speak out in defense of her ministerial constituency because she is part of the system, she is a beneficiary of corruption herself!

7. Let us #RegisterToVote for a Zimbabwe where Holy Ten will not be forced to ‘regret’ featuring in a song he loves very much, a free Zimbabwe that doesn’t protect corruption to the extent that Winky D’s life is threatened by the state for merely singing anti-corruption songs.

There have been mixed reactions on social media about Holy 10 performing the same song he said he regretted doing.
