Winky D walked away the biggest winner on Wednesday night, bagging four accolades at the inaugural Zim-dancehall awards.

The Ninja President, as Winky D is fondly known, scooped the Best Male Artiste Award, Best Social Message Award for his hit “Mafirakureva” which was tied with Jay C’s “Positive”, Best Performer Award and the award for Best Video and Choreography.

There was, however, chaos when a fan believed to be from Killah T’s camp threw a can at Winky D protesting that the results were rigged. This resulted in Winky D’s brother-cum-producer Layaan and his manager, Jonathan Banda, confronting the man and creating a scene.
