‘Winky D Is A Snake Longer Than His Dreadlocks’: Video
Zimhip Hop singer Holy Ten has once again come out guns blazing attacking Zimdancehall singer Winky D over their collaboration song Ibotso which he said he regretted doing soon after its release in January.
Speaking during an interview with Daryll, Holy Ten says Winky D is a snake “longer than his dreadlocks”, drawing a comparison from Adam and Eve’s bible story.
Watch the video below:
He says he wouldn’t have collaborated with Winky D had he known his ‘ulterior motives’ to set him up. The song, Ibotso is considered to be carrying some political intones.
He also did not say Winky D’s name to avoid getting sued. However, his remarks attracted backlash from Winky D’s fans, particularly, journalist and CCC activist Hopewell Chin’ono who said Holy Ten should be careful to destroy his career
He also said that Holy Ten was seeking to please his “ZANU PF handlers” whom he believes sponsor him. “My brother Holly, stop player hating. Winky D has been doing this music thing for decades, so you might learn something from engaging with him without dissing him.
Winky D is bigger, that is why everyone was happy to see him give you an opportunity to duet! Show some respect to Winky D and also you must realize that the kind of things you are saying here can turn some of your fans off.
Live and learn, don’t destroy your career dude with this silly and misguided comments. Winky D gave you a bigger platform than you ever had, a thank you is what a decent person would do. Do you have management, if you have change them.
A REAL manager wouldn’t let you say this crap! usatande Botso munin’ina, unopera sesipo!!! Holy must understand that ZANUPF is not stupid. They know he did this song willingly but then regretted & is worried about losing the free stuff.
They know that he is trying so hard to fix his image with them. ZANUPF has more respect for Winky D because they know where he stands with his views. Holy is just blowing with the wind, so ZANUPF has no respect for him at all, and they have said it privately.
They know he is saying these stupid things to pretend like he is on their side, they know that all he is afraid of is losing freebies, they ain’t stupid. Asviba both sides and the more he talks, the more he looks like a clown. Sad!!!”
Both Holy Ten and Winky D released albums at the beginning of the year and are both trending on Youtube.
He also addressed his beef with Volts JT during the interview.
