Over the past few years, there has been a consistent theme which follows Winky D`s releases.
The comments are more entertaining than the music itself.
His followers have reduced themselves to vile defenders of a mediocre product.
After more than a year of silence, he returned to releasing music with a song called Happy Again.
The record, all done in English can easily serve as an example of how not to compose music.
It lacks soul.
For a love song, it was devoid of any convincing emotion.
The only thing he has done, is reminded the country how much of a polarizing figure he is.
One social media user opined of the album; “Dzimwe dzangonharo but APERA HAKE MUKOMANA Happy again=kwasa-kwasa”
There was once Wallace Chirimuko aka Winky D who used to shut down the year. In fact he had a song in which he chanted Ndavharisa 2010….and called himself Messi we Reggae but then he turned himself into an activist singing some song about sand (kasong kejecha) and in so doing apparently poured sand on his own singing career.
Of Winky D, Tafadzwa Leroy Dzenga, an award winning journalist posted on Facebook, “Winky D is not infallible, he sometimes releases average songs. Similarly, he is not persistently terrible – he has good songs. Foolishness is believing that any of the two statements above could be absolute an truth on its own.”
There hasn’t been any notable song from the so called Gaffa with his last memorable song song being MuGadheni only because of a good video and probably the indigenous lines from the Gemma Griffiths.
He followed that with a fun one called Njema which apparently lasted the distance it takes cops to walk a handcuffed chap to the police station and remove the handcuffs.
Then came the latest offering; Happy Again which lacks any happiness.
For a song which had been hyped n was supposed to give wings to the deflated career of the former year-shutter it nothing, not even a stutter. It does not even tease to fly.
The hype that had earlier followed its release ended even before the official release.
Marlon Munyaradzi aka Mhofu Mhofu Mhofu summed it up when he said: “Song ya 10:00 yakutonhowa na 7:00”
Socialite and POSH owner Nomatemba Primrose Ndebele said of the song; “Listening to Jerusarema lite 🤣, Akuna” 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️😜 and she added, “Sorry henyu hakazi kunakidza.”
As if to sum up how dreary the flagship song of the album is, self proclaimed Social Media Minister and Gaffalite, Wellence Mujuru had this to say; “Ticharidza song iyoyo kusvika manakirwa.”
The song has basically failed to make it to anyone’s party list for the festive season.
The fact that people are actually comparing it to and it’s losing to months old songs like Jerusarema by Jah Prayzah and Patati Patata by Roki shows just how bad the song is.
But the Stans will insult a person`s mother for pointing out how terrible the song is.
