More details will be provided in due course.”

The unfortunate incident happened just after police stormed and stopped Winky D’s performance at Castle Tankard.

Four members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police reportedly invaded the stage whilst Winky D was performing his fourth song forcing the show to end abruptly.

This angered fans who started throwing cans and bottles.

It is still not clear why the police stormed the stage and stopped the show. However, some critics have already started to assume that they were enforcing curfew regulations while some think that the move to stop Winky D’s performance was politically motivated.
