The stage was set for the Best of Both Worlds Concert. The long-held debate of who is better between Zimbabwe's two biggest artists was finally going to be settled. Well, they were finally going to stage a show as just the two of them and fans would finally decide which of the two outshines the other.

As the time for the concert approached however reports started coming out that the venue for the concert HICC was surrounded by the police. On a post giving an update of the situation highly renowned entertainment journalist Plot Mhako wrote:

"BREAKING NEWS: There's police all over HICC, vakuda kuvharisa chinhu. "We have been told to strip down all the equipment." Promoter reportedly taken in by police"
As the news filtered through last night many fans feared that the artists themselves would be part of those arrested but it didn't turn out so. Winky D is no stranger to show controversy as last year he had to cut his performance midway at the Castle Big Braai celebrations after fans became violent and a further while back he had to cancel a performance in Kwekwe after being pelted with projectiles. Plot Mhako went on to confirm cancellation of the Best of both worlds concert and he complained about how Zimbabwe was a difficult working environment for creatives. In his post he wrote:

It's NO-show. The show has been cancelled. Zimbabwe is a hard place for creatives. SAD!"

The event organisers Kayse Connect have since issued an apology regarding the cancellation of the show but they don't reveal the reason why it was cancelled. The show had a limit of only 100 in-person fans while the rest would have to stream the performances from home. All covid-19 measures were adhered to at the time and many are insinuating that the show was cancelled due to sabotage by fellow promoters. In Kayse Connect's statement they said:

We regret to advise that despite our best efforts it has become impossible to proceed with the Jah Prayzah and Winky D, BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, PAY PER VIEW event as initially scheduled. We will update you on further details soon. WE SINCERELY APOLOGISE 

An exciting stage had been set for the concert after Winky D latest release, a song titled Reply had set a record on YouTube for the most views within 24 hours on the digital platform. Jah Prayzah previously held the record for most views on YouTube with his song Mukuwasha which amassed 178 000 views in 24 hours. Prior to that Winky D held the record with 171 000 for his hit MuGarden featuring Gemma Griffiths. Jah Prayzah's recent release, a song titled Porovhoka which performed well in relation to views but fell short of 2 000 views to equal his own record.
