HARARE – The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) has decided to lift its ban on Winky D’s music, because, let’s be real, it wasn’t like it was going to silence him anyway.


After a whole year of trying to censor the Zimdancehall artist’s outspoken social commentary, the powers that be finally realized that, oh wait, the internet exists! And people can still listen to his music online, at parties, and in their cars, and pretty much everywhere else.


So, with a heavy sigh, ZBC has begrudgingly allowed Winky D’s music back on the airwaves, but only after carefully curating a selection of his most innocuous tracks. Because, heaven forbid, they might accidentally play something that critiques the government.


Winky D, ever the rebel, celebrated his “victory” by thanking his fans for their support during his New Year’s Eve concert. “I only had the internet and dreams, and then you (fans),” he said, winking at the authorities.


Meanwhile, the ZBC is still trying to figure out how to censor the internet, but we’re pretty sure they’ll get there eventually. After all, it’s not like they have better things to do, like, say, fixing the economy.
