Many may know as well as they might not know that the dancehall fraternity doesn't stop at the shores of the Caribbean nor is limited to where Jamaicans reside. There could be a lot of Jamaicans in Africa, I dont think Winky D is one of them. He is the self-proclaimed King of the Dancehall in Zimbabwe, and there are many more top dancehall acts in other African countries such as Ghana.
Winky D .. has some problems .. he is in war with his fellow dancehall artiste from Zimbabwe, namely one called 'Badman'. There have been diss tunes and counteractions just like the dancehall atmosphere here in Jamaica.
In a recent news report in the Zimbabwe Herald, it was indicated that the new artiste are looking to take some hype off Winky. They seek their populairty by taking cheap shots at the "King"..
This sounds familiar... in the lyrical wars over the years in Jamaica between artiste, especially the ongoing 20 year war with Beenie and Bounty, .. it has been said that one is parasitic on the other ..and same with more recent confrontations with Mavado and Kartel...where it is said that Kartel is riding on the Mavado international popularity. There is now a barrage of upcoming acts taking swipes at Kartel and Mavado under the disguise of defending their crew.
But what im saying is that the Dancehall war thing is in Africa... a see the connection... Africa cant seem to be at peace with itself ever since me know it... now wonder the extended nations like Jamaica cannot be at peace.
