Hip Hop artist Holy Ten has sparked controversy within the Zimbabwe music sector by claiming that award-winning dancehall star Winky D is a snake longer than his dreadlocks.
The latest attack by Holy Ten comes after the Anotobvawo Kune Vanhu hit-maker said he regretted working with Winky D after their collaboration Winky D’s latest offering Eureka on the song Ibotso.
The song has been interpreted to be political amid by Zanu PF aligned groups for the song to be banned on all radio stations.
“The man you are talking about (Winky D) is a snake longer than his dreadlocks. But even the serpent did not force the apple, which became a global disaster, into Eve’s mouth. The serpent spoke and Eve made a decision. So in this case, I’m Eve. I would have never done a song with Winky Gee, that’s me avoiding to be sued. I’m not stupid, I have done law and we signed contracts,” said Holy Ten
The hip hop artist is now under heavy criticism for reigniting flames that had already been doused with award winning journalist Hopewell Chin’ono leading the disapproval.
“My brother Holly, stop player hating. Winky D has been doing this music thing for decades, so you might learn something from engaging with him without dissing him. Winky D is bigger, that is why everyone was happy to see him give you an opportunity to duet!
“Show some respect to Winky D and also you must realize that the kind of things you are saying here can turn some of your fans off. Live and learn, don’t destroy your career dude with this silly and misguided comments. Winky D gave you a bigger platform than you ever had, a thank you is what a decent person would do. Do you have management, if you have change them.
“A REAL manager wouldn’t let you say this crap! Usatande Botso munin’ina, unopera sesipo!!! Holy must understand that ZANUPF is not stupid. They know he did this song willingly but then regretted & is worried about losing the free stuff. They know that he is trying so hard to fix his image with them. ZANUPF has more respect for Winky D because they know where he stands with his views,” Chin’ono said
He added “Holy is just blowing with the wind, so ZANU PF has no respect for him at all, and they have said it privately. They know he is saying these stupid things to pretend like he is on their side, they know that all he is afraid of is losing freebies, they ain’t stupid. Asviba both sides and the more he talks, the more he looks like a clown. Sad!!!”
