Zimdancehall superproducer DJ Fantan has sparked controversy after he released a statement supporting Deputy Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation, Tino Machakaire. Machakaire has been trending on social media platforms after he was alleged to have splashed US$770,000 on a Rolls Royce Phantom.
The Deputy Minister has denied purchasing the luxury vehicle. However, he has come under fire from some quarters of social media who have accused him of benefitting from irregularly awarded tenders and contracts from the state.
DJ Fantan, real name Arnold Kamudyariwa, waded into the controversy when he released a statement on social media backing Machakaire. In his message, Fantan claimed that people were soiling Machakaire’s name for social media clout.
Writing on social media platform Facebook, Fantan said,
Dear hon @machakairetino be strong mukuru, bcoz kune vanhu vanoda kusvibisa mazita evamwe pa social media just for clout.
Garai muchiziva kuti ane bhora ndiye anomakwa, strongest soldiers get the hardest fight.
& ndimi mbinga 1 isina noise kana show off asi murikurira muma streets zvekudaro. So zvinorwadza vavengi.
Now vakufambisa mbiri yekuti makatenga hammer kkk havasikuziva kuti munobatsira hamma.
However, the Chillspot Records producer’s statement sparked controversy on social media. Some people did not respond well to the statement and accused him to stick to music and avoiding politics. Other people, on the other hand, defended both Fantan and Tino Machakaire, saying the minister’s hands are clean.
Newewo u are an idiot kana wakuda kupindira dzisiri dzako, ndimi mukudya mari dzenyika imimi in the name of arts, u dont even think, ko zvava kambokuvhariyayi wani Fantan Dweet.

Stick to your chosen trade and you will be alright. This discussion is beyond your intellectual capabilities. Hakusi ku spinner uku bambo. You should have found someone to interpret to you in a language you understand better Tendai Biti’s discussion on corruption yesterday. I’m hoping to see a retraction of this post.

Pamberi naFantan. In Zimbabwe support winning team. Unodya vamwe vachimama. Vachangikubuka for 2mins mangwana vanotofuma vachidedzera levels production. Sezvamakaita pa java misred.
My respect for this guy officially ended today. Ko vakadini kuramba vakamupfigira havo paye
. Never bring Zanu politics into your career. The party has no good reputation to boost your business.
You’re now singing for your supper ka, at least you knw where your bread is buttered. As for the rest of us Zimbabweans we are wallowing in poverty because of that corrupt blesser of yours and his zanupf cronies
Bambo these are sensitive issues…don’t provoke millions of ordinary citizens who are suffering at the hands of the misrule and plunder of this corrupt and vampiric regime! Do you know that the group or the brand u represent is oiled by desperate youths who are trying hard to irk a living by chanting zimdancehall anthems for peanuts…ita eazy chief! It’s even safe to conclude that Zimdancehall is a movement which reflects the poverty and brokenness of our society!
I thought ndimi maghetto voices.bt ukada kusimbisa vari kudya nyangwe iri cash yavo ziva haufe wakatamba mushe nevarikushaya.Zim situation ma1 stay in your lane.
