Zimdancehall chanter, Wallace Chirimuko, popularly known as Winky D is reportedly broke and failing to release his latest project owing to the impact of Covid-19 stifling his revenue flows.
In efforts to control the spread of Covid-19, Government’s restriction on public gatherings has affected the arts industry leaving artists with little to no revenue streams.
According to reports, Winky D’s manager, Jonathan Banda, said the Vigilance stable had promising new material to offer to their fans but were however facing budgetary issues to release those productions.
Recently, the Mu-garden hitmaker who charges more than a USD1000 per session dragged his long-time friends, Magamba TV, to court and slapped them with a US$12 000 lawsuit for illegally using his track “Parliament” without his consent.
He argued that the use of the track was taken out of context, according to reports, as it portrayed him as having affiliations with a certain political party and decided to have an out of court settlement.
Since the commencement of the lockdown period, Winky D has released only four songs, prompting his large following to speculate that the Gaffer has seen better days and should concede that his times of dominating Zimdancehall are over.
Twitter in recent days has been buzzing with memes and ridicule of skeletal remains of people who apparently died waiting for Winky D to release a song.
Meanwhile a video of prominent gospel artist, Kudzi Nyakudya, has been doing rounds on social media showing him ferrying people with a silver mushika-shika Toyota Wish along Samora Machel Avenue near Trek fuel station.
