Zimdancehall sensation Winky D, born Wallace Chirumiko, has been nominated in two categories at the All Africa Music Award (Afrima) 2022.
Winky D was nominated for the Best Male Artist in Southern Africa and Best Artist in African Reggae-Dancehall together with fellow artiste Nutty O.
Nutty O’s song Handipere Power was selected alongside Winky D’s Happy Again in the African Reggae-Dancehall category.
The Gaffa President was once again nominated with his song Happy Again under the Best Male Artist in Southern Africa category.
Having a double nomination in Afrima shows that Winky D is indeed a cut above the rest as he is raising the Zimdancehall flag higher.
Winky D will battle for honours for the Best Male Artist in Southern Africa category with South African DJ and record producer Kabza De small and Master KG, among other African stars.
This is the second time Winky D has been nominated for an accolade of such a magnitude.
In 2019, The Gaffa President alongside Jah Prayzah were nominated for the same award by African Music Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) which was scooped by South Africa’s Sjava.
