Drama as Dancehall star Winky D launches his new album Njema wearing prison jersey


Dancehall star Winky D yesterday launched his album Njema and he was wearing a signature red and white jersey (same as the ZPCS’s prison jersey) which left one popular journalist asking if Winky D had gone all in, in painting the picture that Zimbabwe is now a prison due to the economic crisis.

Hopewell Chi’ono posted this picture of Winky D and captioned it:

“The outfit

“That is the uniform worn by prisoners in Zimbabwe.

“A metaphor that citizens are prisoners & the country has become a giant prison! #Njema is slang for handcuffs! The citizens have been handcuffed by tyranny, corruption, LOOTING, mismanagement and clan based nepotism.”


Winky D before his album was launched was in a bit of trouble with the authorities after they reportedly banned state-controlled radio stations from playing his new album an allegation they denied.
