Winky D in concert @ HIFA

 Winky D (born Wallace Chirumiko) is a Zimbabwean born and based reggae/dance hall artist that is taking the Zimbabwe music scene by storm. He featured at the recent Harare International Festival of the Arts 2011 on the Telecel main stage and he had the crowds dancing, cheering, singing along and begging for more by the end of his energetic and enthused performance. 

Whilst I would not consider myself a reggae or dance hall fan, Winky D managed to draw me into his music during the concert because of his stage presence and humble way of presenting himself and engaging with his audience. His songs are heartfelt and speak of issues of life that we can all identify with. He injects humour and thought provoking lyrics which make cause you to engage. Winky D, is also known as 'The Poor People's Devotee' and 'Di Bigman'.
