Winky d’s manager Banda said “mari iyoyo ndoyatinobhadhara base guitarist wedu
Details have emerged, indicating that Winky D allegedly snubbed Mai TT’s wedding, after being offered a paltry US$500.
Mai TT is reported to have wanted Winky D to grace her wedding and perform for attendees on the day. The white wedding will be held on the 19th of April in South Africa. She got married to Tinashe Maphosa in the United States in an intimate ceremony, last year and the couple has since had their traditional wedding.
Mai TT reportedly contacted Winky D’s camp so they can invite him to perform on the day. She then offered to pay him US$500 to play for an hour.
Winky D’s manager Jonathan Banda allegedly responded: “Mari iyoyo ndoyatinobhadhara base (sic) guitarist wedu or our Dj Layan for one hour [The amount you are offering us is the kind of money that we pay to our bass guitarist or to DJ Layan for an hour].”
If true, this is not the first time the Zimdancehall legend has declined to perform. In 2020, Winky D turned down an offer from controversial socialite Passion Java for an undisclosed project. The project was worth a staggering US$35 000.
Banda said they could not take up the deal because they were swamped with other projects at the time.
Meanwhile, Mai TT’s wedding coming up later this month will be a pay-per-view event and the public will have to fork out US$5 to watch all the proceedings.
