Winky D is still haunted by the incident in London when he collapsed on stage after a fan sprayed him with an unknown substance
This became clear in Bulawayo when the Ninja President fled from fans after performing at the launch of Jah Prayzah’s new album. Fans angling to shake the hand or take selfies with the star were left disappointed when he gave them a cold shoulder. The star’s entourage would not let any fan touch him, shrugging off the hands of those that got too close for comfort.
According to Winky D’s manager, Jonathan Banda, the star is apprehensive about flashing a smile for the camera or engaging fans because he has had bad experiences with rowdy fans in the past.“There are a lot of factors involved in terms of allowing his interaction with fans or not. On Saturday, for example, he was quite tired and he needed to go and rest because we had many shows on the trot in the last few weeks.
“Security is also quite tricky and one time in the UK a fan sprayed him with an unknown substance and he collapsed. All those are things to factor in,” he said
