The Bigman Winky D born Wallace Chirumiko has proven nothing but the best to ever emerge from Zimbabwe. The chanter has managed to win most of his international awards. Late 2020, he was nominated at the AEUSA under the Best Dancehall Artist and became victorious.

At the AEUSA he was nominated along with greats like Shatta Wale, Jose Chameleon, Prince Bright, Patoranking, Bebe Cool, Sheebah Karungi, Stonebwoy, Samini and Navy Kenzo. Whereas at this years IRAWMA he was up against acts like Buffalo Souljah, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy and Patoranking.

Winky D managed to outrun all those acts and became the victorious out of them all. Winning in USA and Jamaica sets a high tone of recognition of Reggae and Dancehall from Zimbabwe. It has been a long time coming for Zimbabwe to be recognized at such ceremonies.

Even though the fans have tried by all means to make him collaborate more with trending acts to suit the market, Winky has denounced them and chose to work on his own until they recognize him in an interview with Trevor.

Critics have risen from different creatives and fans claiming that, he was not the perfect winner for the award. Since creatives like Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale have performed well as artists from Africa. They have been featured on official riddims and even collaborated with top acts like Vybz Kartel, Jahmiel, Skillibeng and to mention a few.

For Winky D it would seem not deserving but the chanter has worked big time. This is not the first time he was nominated in Jamaica, it’s probably the second. At first he was nominated under the Best Song with Kings Of Africa featuring UK based Gappy Ranks. After that he went on to collaborate with acts like King of Dancehall Beenie Man, Red Rat and to mention a few.
