The General’s popularity received a boost early this year at the Mavado concert in Harare.
The Hapana Hapana singer literally booted Winky D also known as the Ninja President off the stage.
This happened after Winky D had exceeded his performing time and overlapped into Sniper’s but The General failed to tolerate that.
During that fateful stage performance, Sniper angrily jumped on stage, snatched the microphone from Winky D’s hands and started firing at him.
In his song Hapana Hapana, Sniper said he is a soldier hence he fears nothing. He sang that he is prepared to fight until everything is destroyed.
