Winky D should not dab­ble in pol­i­tics

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

IF I was Winky D, I would stick to cre­at­ing mu­sic that ev­ery­one can lis­ten to and steer away from po­lit­i­cally charged works.

Tempt­ing as it might be, ven­tur­ing into the po­lit­i­cal arena as a mu­si­cian might as well be shoot­ing one­self in the foot.

His lat­est re­lease, Ka­song Ke­jecha, is laden with po­lit­i­cal con­no­ta­tions, some­thing that might prove to be a grave mis­take in the long run.

Just like mu­si­cians such as Tam­baoga, Si­mon Chim­betu or Born Free Crew that openly de­clared their sup­port for Zanu-PF or Ray­mond Ma­jongwe and Paul Mad­zore whose links with op­po­si­tion pol­i­tics is known, Winky D should know or de­clare where he stands.

I am sure many artistes are in panic mode as they are try­ing their best to de­throne the man of the mo­ment, Enzo Ishall, but pol­i­tics is not the way to go about it.

There are many mu­sic fans out here who want noth­ing to do with pol­i­tics.

I love Winky D’s artistry, but when it takes a charge at pol­i­tics I am be­gin­ning to have goose bumps.

Maybe the youth­ful mu­si­cian knows what he is do­ing, but I say to him “be­ware the Ides of March”.

Leave Pol­i­tics to Politi­cians
