Winky D has written some massive hits in his time as an entertainer and although it is difficult (near impossible!) to choose, we have decided to compile a list of 10 of our favourites. Which of these are your favourite Winky D jams?
1. Musarova Bigman
This track has stood the test of time because of its ability to paint a vivid picture of a young couple caught red-handed doing the dirty by the girl’s father... in his own house! It gained popularity because of the “girl” depicted in the song’s martyr-like behaviour of trying to save her lover from the wrath of her father, rather than saving herself.
The beat for "Disappear" is unparalleled! It’s funny that in this song Winky D believes that alcohol will make all of one's problems go away. This song is one of the biggest party anthems that he has made during his career, and it is suitable for literally any kind of groove session. He definitely took a lot of time in composing this extraordinary track.
We love this track because it was a unique, unexpected collaboration between Winky D and gospel act, Vabati vaJehova. It also served as an extraordinary comeback for the much-loved Vabati vaJehova group. This track is heavily laden with meaning, as it reveals the need for spiritual intervention in some of the problems we face in life. The harmony of voices between Winky D and Vabati vaJehova is to die for.
4. Panorwadza moyo
This melancholic song is now even more appreciated because it features the late AND VERY GREAT Oliver Mtukudzi. It’s perfect for consoling someone who has just lost a loved one.
5. Gafa party (toi toi)
This song has Afro-pop and Zimdancehall written all over it; making us appreciate the genius behind it. It’s easy to dance to this "Gafa Party" as it just requires one to go with the flow. Seriously, even if you can't dance, this song will get you in the mood to party!
6. Bhachi ne Jean
This song isn't just a hit; it's an entire fashion movement! Wearing a jean trousers and a jacket has been trending since the release of the song.
7. Takaipa takaipa
We absolutely love a person confident in his abilities. In this song, Winky spares no punches and reveals just what he thinks of himself. Moreover, he identified himself as the actual definition of reggae, which is a big claim!
8. Bho yangu
In this song Winky D advises people to take good care of their beloved possessions because not everyone is happy with their success and they will do all they can to sabotage their happiness. It’s an eye opener to those who are too trusting to be mindful of those surrounding them.
It's not just about partying and women when Winky D hits the mic. This is a song about death and how we need to value our loved ones now because we may lose them any time. It has a strong reggae vibe to it.
10. Twenty five
Lastly, we have a song that speaks honestly about how unfulfilled dreams can affect us. This song also shows us that sometimes, what is not meant for you will simply not find you.
