Winky D’s disappear is the number 1 most played song on BBC

Dancehall music sensation Winky D’s hit song Disappear has risen from number five to number one on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Radio 1 Extra Destination Africa Top Five (5).


Disappear was produced by Oskid at KeNako Muzik.

Winky D’s hit is followed by Ghanaian star’s Shatta Wale’s self-produced tune titled Hol’ It while Zigo (Remix) by AY stands on third position.

Black Coffee’s song We Dance Again is on fourth position and 25-year-old Nigerian music star Wizkid’s Final anchors the continental chart.

Winky D’s song, which is also nominated under the Outstanding Song at this year’s edition of National Arts Merit Awards (Nama), is off the Ninja president’s 10-track latest album Gafa Life, which was arguably the most played song during the just-ended festive season.

Winky D has always been a favourite of (BBC) Radio 1Extra Destination Africa Top 5 presenter DJ Edu.

Five years ago, during a tour of the United Kingdom, the Ninja president did a free style on the programme at the invitation of DJ Edu.

Disappear’s entry onto the BBC chart is yet another feather in the cap for a song that has courted both popularity and controversy in equal measure.

So popular is the track that local artistes are falling over each other to do cover versions of the hit.

Guitarist, singer and songwriter Tariro neGitare added a jazzy feel to the song while a duo going by name Us Two — made of Chido Chigwedere and Mutsa Chiromo — teamed up with one Zviko to create their own cover version of the self-styled Zimdancehall president’s hit song.

Social media has been inundated with various versions of the song with one of the most interesting being a cover of Disappear in a Roman Catholic style by an unidentified group.

The cover is so well done that one can easily mistake it for a church hymn.

Disappear also has several apostolic style versions.

Apart from Disappear, Winky D’s latest album carries hits like Mirror, Woshora, Idya Mari, Ngoma Futi, Survivor featuring Shinsoman, Copyrights, Holiday featuring Guspy Warrior and Not Nice.
