One of the best Zimbabwean reggae-dancehall musicians is Wallace Chirumiko, better known by his stage names Winky D, The Big Man (sometimes spelled “Di Bigman”), Dancehall Igwe, Gaffa, Ninja President, or Professor. He was born in 1983.
He is regarded as the originator of Zimdancehall and one of Zimbabwe’s finest modern musicians.
The gaffas have persisted in defending him in this situation by saying that he stays away from controversy for the benefit of his family.
Here is all the information you need to know about Winky D’s wife and kids, as well as an overview of his life and profession.
It is unknown who Winky D’s wife is, and it is also unknown if he has ever been married. He does, however, mention his daughter Tayenda’s name in a few songs. Like most famous people, Winky D keeps his personal and romantic life private. Despite having been in a few partnerships in the past, some reports claim that he is currently single.
Winky D was born in Kambuzuma, a crowded district of Zimbabwe’s capital city of Harare. Trevor Chirumiko, commonly known as Layan, is Winky D’s brother. In addition to hosting television, Layan is a singer and songwriter.
He first became interested in music when he was eight years old and started listening to reggae. He would take his time locating and gathering reggae music cassettes and LPs.
In Harare, Wallace Chirumiko attended both elementary and secondary schools. Prior to attending Kambuzuma High School, he attended Rukudzo Primary School.
With assistance from Bartholomew Vera of Blacklab Studios, Winky D entered the studio. His early hits, such “Rasta” and “Dead Inna War,” as well as his creative stage acts, kept the dance floors hopping.
The success of his tours in the United Kingdom, the United States, Asia, and South Africa show that he has gained followers all over the world since then. He has now recorded eleven albums, many of which have charted. The “King of Dancehall,” “Gombwe,” “Gafa (Gaffer),” Extraterrestrial, “The BigMan,” “Messi wereggae,” and “Truthsayer” are some of the monikers given to Winky D in the ghettos.
In August 2013, Winky D was not invited to perform at the National Sports Stadium’s gala celebrating President Robert Mugabe’s inauguration due to conflicting reports about the musician’s whereabouts at the occasion.
