Video: A little too late
become more than the visual accompaniment for song but mini-movies that tell a story that complements what is said in the track. This is an element that seems to be lacking in the chanter’s video which was either made on the premise of a non-existent script or a flimsy one. While his creative storytelling in songs suggests a man with a strong pen, for the making of this video, this ability seems to have disappeared along with the rest of the problems he so laments in the song. This is of course if he supplied the thin storyline to the Kyle White directed video. Disappear managed to touch so many people because it gave a nod to the problems that people face in everyday life. Despite not prescribing any solutions to these troubles, his Oskid produced party anthem suggests that people can find smile, joy and party despite these problems. This is not captured in the video however, with the few video vixens that Winky features in the videos hardly looking the type to be troubled by the problems printed on papers that he holds up to the camera in the video. While it was undoubtedly a party song for the ages, the video fails to capture any festive mood, with Winky D and the few ladies that feature in the video hardly making up a crowd sufficient for a party. Thus the gyrating vixens that feature in the video are mere eye-candy, thereby making the video a throwback to earlier times when slapping a couple of beautiful ladies in front of the camera was enough to get a video attention. The video’s one redeeming quality is that it perhaps announces Winky’s departure from the pool of Zimbabwean artistes that make the much lamented grainy videos. With such a high video resolution it is likely to rack in thousands of views on YouTube and bag Winky his much craved regional and continental recognition.
