Winky D pulled out of the Morgan Heritage concert at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) after promoters told him he cannot perform with a band as per request of the main act (Morgan Heritage) who travelled without a band.
Morgan Heritage also told the promoter that Winky D can only perform after them. Below is a statement issued by Winky D:
Vigilance Management hereby informs music lovers who were looking forward to seeing Winky D at the HICC tonight, that he is no longer performing there as earlier advertised. We sincerely apologize for the difficult decision that had to be taken, this was necessary, as informed by the failure of the Promoters to abide by contractual obligations, chief amongst which were their denial of Winky D to perform with his full band, the Vigilance. The reason given for this denial was that since headline acts were not using a live band, he likewise should give up the band arrangement. This led to direct orders for the Sound engineers to pull down the set up that would have enabled Winky D to perform with a band. It would have been nice to be part of a reggae conversation in music. Looking forward to a chance to reconnect musically with ones and all. Love and respect.
