WINKY D and Jah Prayzah fans in Masvingo were left clutching at straws last week when the two musicians failed to turn up for the Masvingo Music Festival as promised by the organisers.

Fans who spoke to NewsDay accused the organisers of selling them a dummy and demanded a refund.
They also accused the organisers of not coming clean on what exactly transpired after paying $5 for advance tickets and $7 at the gate and $15 for VIP tickets.
Although efforts to get a comment from Caravan Park public relations and communications manager, Fortune Ngarande, were fruitless, organisers reportedly sent an apology via WhatsApp.
“We also apologise for the inconvenience after the well-planned Music Festival which was to be lightened up by the two music stars, Winky D and Jah Prayzah, failed [to kick off]. Several factors that contributed to the failure including the rains,” the message read .
The organisers then assured the fans that the festival has been rescheduled to November 3, when it will be held free of charge featuring the same artistes.
