It appears when you are good at it, one album cd is enough to get you a set of wheels!
Last night was the official launch for Winky’s latest offering called Gombwe. The double event which was also a birthday bash for the 35 year old dancehall Igwe was held at the HICC which was oversubscribed with fans filling to hall to capacity and more with some people resorting to stand in passage ways to get a glimpse of the action.
Many artists took to the stage as they helped the Gafa celebrate his birthday and launch. South African based Buffalo Souljah who was the guest artist did not manage to mesmerize the crowd enough as he seemed to enjoy his songs more than the crowd was.
When it came time for the Gafa to take on the mic, fans went crazy. With screams and shouts covering the 5,000 seater as excitement clearly rose within. As usual the Gafa (or is it now Gombwe) did not fail to impress.
Opening with a slew of his old hits, he later on started introducing some of his brand new tracks from the album.One such song that caught our attention was Ngirozi, which he features the Vabati VaJehova group.
Ginimbi, a popular Zimbabwe businessman later joined Winky D on stage and pledged to buy the album for $20,000 before increasing the figure to a whooping $40,000!
