Eureka: Holy Ten Says He Regrets Working With Winky D

Zimbabwean hip-hop musician, Holy Ten has said he is regretting working with Winky D in Ibotso, a song which is on Winky’s latest album titled Eureka.

Holy Ten, born Mukudzei Chitsama, cites the sensationalisation of the song by commentators, mainly journalists. In a Twitter post seen by Pindula News, Holy Ten said:

Activists, journalists, lawyers – Split opinions will not do any good for a brand that’s trying to serve & save everyone so help me by not acting like I’ve picked a side. Do not politicize a project that I’ve considered a mere honor to be a part of. I regret it now honestly 1,075 Heartbreak Emoji Illustrations & Clip Art - iStock

The song, Ibotso, has been viewed by some as depicting Zimbabwe as a long-decayed society in which the residents naively hope things will miraculously change for the better.

Zimbabwe is a crime scene, said Brezh Malaba, a journalist, in his analysis of the song. He added:

Corruption-induced poverty has unleashed devastating poverty on ghetto youths. Hunger has ensnared naive girls into a life of debauchery. There are artistes who conveniently choose to ignore these stark realities. 

Winky D has set himself apart.

In Ibotso, he lays bare the ugly underbelly of a long-decayed society which foolishly hides beneath a threadbare cloak of self-denial, in the forlorn hope of swiftly waking up from a prolonged nightmare. Where delusion meets deceit, victims abound.

The Gafa chants: “Vanotora zvevapfupi nekureba”. What comes next is epic. Holy 10, his eager apprentice, then intones: “Sekutamba sekuseka”. From that point on, the flow is infectious, irresistible, delectable.

Some commentators said Winky D should just join politics suggesting he was paid by the opposition to push the regime change agenda.

Winky D says he just mirrors societal issues affecting the common man.

  1. If you air out your opinions in Zim and it’s about real issues affecting the common men then you are an enemy to some…

  2. Holly is a snitch going against the goodwill of the community…. Winny is very thoughtful and knows what to say when to say… Zvakare aiputsa hari. . chokwadi chiripachena
