LIST: Winky D’s Songs About Leadership Failure

Zimdancehall musician Winky D, whose real name is Wallace Chirumiko, has faced a lot of criticism in recent days following the release of his album, Eureka, on which several artistes featured.

Winky D’s critics include self-styled prophet and ZANU PF sympathiser Passion Java, Economic Empowerment Group (EEG) president Mike Chimombe, music producer and promoter DJ Fantan, and Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation Deputy Minister, Tinoda Machakaire, among others.

They all accused Winky D of dabbling in politics and attacking the government, with DJ Fantan going as far as claiming that the musician was paid to criticise the government.

Holy Ten, who featured on “Ibotso”, one of the tracks on the album, said he regretted collaborating with Winky D, saying the song had been politicised.

However, Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa (Independent) said there is nothing wrong with Winky D bringing up pertinent issues which are plaguing the country.

Mliswa argued that “Winky D never insulted, attacked, or cursed anyone”, adding “the thematic content on Eureka Eureka is the same since way back for Winky D” as he “has produced many songs before with similar content.”

Here are some of the songs by Winky D that divided opinions:

Ibotso

In the song, Winky D says:

Vanotora zvevapfupi nekureba. Ini ndiri Muimbi chete, handina Pfumo Bakatwa, saka musandikakata. Ndoda pekugara, ndoda Roof, ndoda chekudya mumba mune Hupfu.

Paghetto tirikuchema kunge rufu. Vamwe varikukwata varikuchemera muvhu. Vauya netsvimbo hanzi ndiani arikuti bufu, Vatengesa, tengesa vopuhwa mafufu, torwisana tega maHutu nemaTutsi, ayewa hauzombozvida futi.

Zvimoko zvogaya life iri mu beauty, vobhaizwa nemadhara ane ma cooler box muBoot, yobva yangorohwa raw “Sushi”,  Pobarwawo Kamwendo ka Yuti koshaya kuti life irikunanga nekupi, koona maGhevha kotambidzwa pfuti,  Kopinda paGhetto ko blinger neGucci, Holy vatipire kuti “Vanotora zvevapfupi nekureba sekuseka, hoyoo!…

KaSong Kejecha

Here are some of the lyrics from the song, released in 2018:

Aka kasong kejecha, kusvika zvaita better, kungo dira mavhu
Life ngaikike kunge nhabvu
This time am not sorry
Ndapinza 40 marori, zvese kungodira majecha
Tinohwina ndabheja
Aihwa ini am not sorry
Ndapinza 40 marori, zvese kungodira majecha
Tino hwina ndabhenja

Njema

In this song, Winky D seems to have been saying people are oblivious to their imprisonment:

Tinoona setakasununguka
Tichiti hatina zvinotishupa
Kubatana kwenyama nemapfupa
Asi mweya yakasuduruka
Tava kufamba tiri tega panyama
Tisina anotigeza munyama
Zvatiri nhapwa mukurarama
Kusadziona dzakachena munana

Twenty-Five

In this song Winky D said:

Kune maguta hakuendeke because vane mari vakatenga zi-chain ndoku-lock gate
But Gafa ririku-tryer ku-cover gap
Ndongoramba ndiri pandima ndichishanda chete
Chishuwo changu ndechekugara patafura
Ine food fanike iri mune yaChiyangwa plate

Parliament

Point of order Mr Speaker, paghetto ndinokumbira kuti dai masvika
Hapamboda zvekutumira, huyai mega muzvionere maghetto youths aka sticker
Nekuti kufa kwema youths ndokufa kwenyika
Pachapagarwa nani ipapo muchinge madzika?
Handimbo withdrawer statement rangu itai serious imika

Kutonhodzwa kwaChauruka

Kutonhodzwa kwaChauruka, vaive denga vachauruka
Kutonhodzwa kwaChauruka, vaifembera vachasuduruka
Pacharira mpururu, mpururu
Pasi pano hapanzwaro, pakaturunura mikono
Kudzikama kune mubairo, saka famba uine muono
Vamwe vachiti ndisu vachenjeri vakabva kumabvazuva
Muchatsigirwa nevanyengeri, muchatadza kupapfura
Saka dzikama wamai….
