Winky D Huge Anticipation For New Album Njema

After successfully riding on his hit song “Mugarden” featuring Gemma Griffiths which was released in February this year, Winky D will finally release an album named “Njema” on the 31st of December at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC)

Speaking to this publication Winky D’s manager Jonathan Banda said that the album came as a response to the eagerness and positive feedback that has been shown by fans ever since Winky D’s last project.

“This album is coming hot on the heels of what others would call pressure, but we call it feedback around the artist not having released any content since his heavily invested last project (Mugarden).

“The album is therefore coming as a result of positive response from our fans as this shows that people value our content and people want us to produce content as they can easily relate with it,” said Banda Asked about the timeliness of releasing an album right at the end of the year, Banda mentioned that they felt obliged to meet the fans’ expectations as well as honour promises of periodically releasing music.

“Given a chance, we would have released the album next year, but we feel we should honour our promises and commitments to what the people want, that’s why we decided to drop it on the last day of the year to cap the year,” he said.

Banda expressed the need to have the album launched as a musical concert hence it will be headlined by artists of various music genres.

Notable artists to curtain raise for Winky D include high riding Baba Harare, Zim Hip Hop sensation Takura, Zim Dancehall Chairman “Killer T” among others.

Winky D who is arguably Zimbabwe's best Zimdancehall artist will launch his highly anticipated album on 31 December 2019 at Harare International Conference Center (HICC). The album launch  which has been dubbed "The Final Shutdown" is sponsored by Econet's Sasai who alongside the Zimdancehall star had ahead of the album run a promotion in which they challenged Winky D's fans to come with suggestions of the name.

Winky D's new album which comes on the New Year's Eve is believed to become the music offering in Zimbabwe going into 2020. The album launch is most likely to become one of the biggest New Year's Eve parties in the country.

The album also comes at a time when Winky D's fans had been begging him for a new offering, he last released an album Gombwe: Chiextra in February 2018. However this year Winky D had the biggest song of the year, MuGarden a collaboration with Gemma Griffiths that has broken all streaming records, amassing close to 3.9 million views on YouTube.
