Winky D should not dabble in politics
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
