Winky D, born Wallace Chirimuko and other local dancehall artists like Guspy Warrior were scheduled to perfom with Capleton on New Years Eve but as it seems the show will continue without da Bigman.
Local promoters are known to exploit local musicians as they are forced to perfom for free whilst their international counterparts pocket all the change. This dates back to 2008 when Joe Thomas pocketed $50 000 whilst Oliver Mtukudzi was offered $500 for the same show.
The "Musarowa bigman" star officially announced that he is no longer part of the Capleton Zim Tour yesterday
Failure to reach common ground
failure between my management and the promoters of the event to reach common ground over certain terms relating to my performance. - Winky D Facebook
Efforts by Blacklab Records which manages Winky D's affairs to iron out the issues with Red Rose entertainment the promoters of Capleton were all in vain. Leaving no choice but to withdraw
Allow me to express my sincere & heartfelt apologies regarding the following. Accept this as official notification of my withdrawal from the Capleton Zim Tour. - Winky D's Facebook
