Sunday Mail reporter Takudzwa Chihambakwe has criticised Zimdancehall musician Winky D saying his recent releases are a sign of desperation.
Chihambakwe said Winky’s recent releases paint a picture of someone who does not know where he truly stands as far as his sound is concerned. He also criticised the recently released “Kasong Kejecha” which he said is a nauseating attention-seeking gimmick. Chihambakwe said Jah Signal and Enzo Ishall are better than the Zimdancehall veteran. Below is an extract of Chihambakwe’s article:
At the moment, Winky D has nothing on the “Kanjiva” chanter who has other hot singles to silence competition. If one argues that Enzo is on a lucky stretch, then let us talk about Jah Signal.
The “Sweetie” hit-maker might have been right when he sang, “…vhunzai ma Gafa vachiri va penyu vasati vafa. Ndiri kupisa hamusati matsva… dzatove nyembe mukuru regai ndigare pachituru (ask the Gafa while he is still alive, before he dies. I am sizzling hot, you haven’t seen anything yet…I have a bigger rank now, the throne is mine to seat on)”
Jah Signal has been buzzing since 2017 and 2018 has seen him set himself up as a force to reckon with. Probably Winky D is now crushing towards his nadir alongside the likes of Soul Jah Love and Seh Calaz, who are also struggling to shine on the market with their new albums as was the case a few years ago.
Last week Winky D decided to return to dancehall and dropped the track “Kasong Kejecha”.
Due to its political undertones, the song has been quickly embraced by those inclined to opposition politics, who like Winky D, are also pursuing relevance with nauseating attention-seeking gimmicks.
“Kasong Kejecha” is just another mundane offering from the Gafa. He tries to thrive on the now abused calypso beat, which sounds just like everything he has released since “Disappear”.
Perhaps a different producer could have done a better job. It sounds rushed.
After the “Paper Bag” flop, Winky D is willing to do anything, including selling his soul to the devil just to get some spotlight. After all they say no publicity is bad publicity. But truth be told, only a miracle would cause it to buzz more than hits from Enzo Ishall and other acts from the Chill Spot family.
