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:
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!…
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
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
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
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, 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….
