HARARE – A star-studded cast is set to share the stage at Borrowdale Racecourse tomorrow at the annual OK Grand Challenge.
The artistes include Winky D, Judgement Yard and the Mukoko hit makers Tytan and Ammara Brown.
Winky D manager Jonathan Banda told the Daily News that big organisations such as OK fell in love with the 33-year-old artiste because of high level of professionalism exuded by the musician.
“One secret of life is that; be good every time and fortune will follow you. As a band, we are guided by principles of professionalism.
“Winky D has been consistent in the provision of good acts and he is not known for wrong reasons such as controversies.
“We always deliver polished acts whenever we perform and that is the secret behind our success story. We promise nothing but a top-drawer act performance on Saturday,” said the award-winning arts manager.
Winky D is among pioneers of dancehall music in the country.
Since the launch of his musical career, the Igo Figo singer performed in almost every continent and has won a number of musical awards.
Some of his goings include Zimdancehall awards — Best Song Award with track (Rokesheni) Best Social Message (Mafirakureva), Best Live Performer and Best Video and Choreography, Best Artiste 2013 (male) among others.
He won several awards at the National Arts Merit Awards with album Igofigo, (Gafa Life) Disappear and People’s Choice gongs.
The Ninja President, as Winky D is affectionately known by his fans, shared the stage with international musicians such as P-Square, Capleton and Beenie Man among others.
Ammara, the daughter of the late guitarist and vocalist Andy Brown, is known for rocking the stage whenever given an opportunity.
The Mukoko hit makers — Ammara and Tytan — after the Saturday event are set to take their song to the United Kingdom where they are scheduled to perform at Summer Splash 2016 event to be held in Luton and Wolverhampton on July 22 and 23 respectively.
