Yes ladies and gentlemen, Zimbabwe’s King of Dancehall meets THE King of Dancehall for a match nobody saw coming!
A few days ago the Dancehall Igwe, Winky D announced that he will be dropping a new single featuring Jamaican artists Beenie Man, everybody got excited waiting for the fresh single. Only to be hit with a brand new video from the two Kings of different worlds!
Now we’ve got to rewind a little bit. A few months ago in August of this year Winky D performed on a Beenie Man show in Zimbabwe, a show which caused noise after for what some might say the wrong reasons. Some local newspapers started pointing at the fact that Winky D managed to outshine Beenie, a debate which led some to say Winky D was now far better than the King himself.
Was there bad blood now between the two chanters? I think its safe to say not a lot of people saw this collaboration coming. After Beenie Man was humiliated in the form of bad press after such a show, many would think he was done with Zim-dancehall. But Alas!
King Beenie has managed to show he is fully behind the Zimbabwean born genre as he collaborates with one of our own.
