Winky D fans unfollow Holy Ten over “Snake” remarks
a Zimbabwean hip hop artiste, has lost about five thousand Instagram followers after he called his compatriot, Winky D, a “snake.”
Holy Ten and Winky D collaborated on Ibotso, a song from Winky D’s latest offering, Eureka.
The song has been interpreted to be political, with a lobby group Economic Empowerment Group even saying Winky D should be banned from performing in Zimbabwe, because of the song.
Holy Ten, who has previously said he regrets working with Winky D, dissed the Kambuzuma-raised chanter while speaking on an online show The Episode. He said:
It can’t have been a setup. Because at the end of the day, even a snake… The man you are talking about is a snake longer than his dreadlocks. But even the snake did not force that apple on Eve. She was partly involved.
He spoke, and she made a decision. I am Eve. Maybe that’s why I didn’t graduate. I would have never done a song with Winky G. That’s me avoiding being sued. I’ve done Law. We’ve signed contracts.
The remarks attracted varying responses with award-winning journalist Hopewell Chin’ono advising the Anotobvawo Kune Vanhu hit-maker to learn from his ‘elders’.
The week started with Holy Ten sitting on 288 000 followers on Instagram and at the time of publishing was on 283 000.
