Zimdancehall musician Enzo Ishall has finally spoken out over reports he participated in the recent Zanu-PF primary elections.
The Kanjiva hitmaker was the butt of social media jokes on Tuesday after he amassed a measly 7 votes out of 1,385 in Sunningdale.
The Ehe singer was unable to secure a nomination to contest as a Zanu-PF candidate for Sunningdale in the forthcoming elections.
Enzo Ishall seemed to have taken the supposed defeat with grace after he shared a video featuring the iconic Batman villain, Joker, applauding and a silhouette of James Bond, bearing the codename 007 on his Instagram stories.
However, hours later the Vakamhanya Makarimwa chanter took to his Facebook page and denied he had participated in Zanu-PF’s primary elections.
He said if he were to participate as a Zanu-PF candidate he should not be judged as it is his democratic right. Enzo Ishall added that if he were to participate in politics he would inform his fans hinting that he will do so in the next elections.
“We are in the age of social media lies where names are thrown around for popularity by has been journalists. I was never part of the primary campaigns in the recent ZanuPf elections. My vote is my choice and it is my democratic right If I chose to support ZanuPf. However, we need to stop making cheap shots just to get a few likes. Next time if i choose to participate don’t worry i will inform you. 2028 tichachimhanya,” Enzo Ishall wrote on his Facebook wall.
Zimbabweans Weigh In On Enzo’s Response
