DANCEHALL superstar Wallace “Winky D” Chirumiko is penetrating the global market as his music continuously gets recognition in Africa.

Since the release of the beautiful video of MuGarden, which features Gemma Griffith’s, Winky D’s music has received notable appreciation from some of the television and radio shows in Africa.

Recently, MuGarden was introduced as song of the week on Music Time In Africa (MITA) TV,  an online television which has more than a million followers across the world.

The song Ijipita, off the album – Njema – was also introduced by MTIA TV as one of the songs to listen to among other new songs released by other African artistes like Wizkid from Nigeria, Maro from Uganda and Amaze from Liberia.


Hence, Winky D is being considered as one of the Africa’s finest artistes since MTIA TV mostly recognises the best musicians on their show.

Winky D’s manager Jonathan Banda said they appreciate that their work is going beyond borders.

“It is in arrangement and objectives of every artiste to be recognised internationally.

“I acknowledge the recognition that we are getting across Africa and everywhere,” said Banda.

Meanwhile, people are expecting videos from the recently released album, Njema.

Banda has revealed that it is one of their objectives to come up with the visuals for Njema album.

“It is our desire to have visuals for this recent project.

“At the moment, I do not know how many videos we will release because a lot of factors will determine the outcome,” he said.
