He started his music career in the early 2000s and has since released multiple hit songs such as "Disappear," "Gafa Futi," and "Kasong keJecha." Winky D's music has a unique blend of reggae, dancehall, and Zimdancehall sounds, which has made him popular with the Zimbabwean youth.

Like Jah Prayzah, Winky D has also won multiple awards, including the Best Male Artist (Southern Africa) in 2022 - All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) and the 2021 International Reggae and World Music Awards for Best African Dancehall Entertainer. Winky D has also collaborated with several local and international artists, including Beenie Man and Oliver Mtukudzi.

The Verdict

To determine who is the better artist between Jah Prayzah and Winky D, let's take a look at the number of views their music videos have on YouTube. As of April 2023, Jah Prayzah is the most viewed artist in Zimbabwe on YouTube with a total of 50 videos that have surpassed the one million views mark, while Winky D has a total of 19 videos that have achieved the same feat.

As of April 2023, Jah Prayzah's YouTube channel has over 577,000 subscribers, while Winky D's channel has just over 226,000 subscribers. This means that Jah Prayzah has a significantly larger following on YouTube than Winky D.

It is also important to note that Jah Prayzah's videos tend to have higher replay value on YouTube than Winky D's. For example, over the past 12 months, Jah Prayzah is the most streamed artist in Zimbabwe with a total of 36.8 million YouTube plays averaging 100 000 views per day without releasing any new album whilst Winky D has an average of 25 000 views per day and a total of 19 Million YouTube plays inclusive of his new album Eureka Eureka.

Another comparison we can make between both artists is the number of international collaborations each artist has under their belts. Jah Prayzah has over eight collaborations including his biggest hit Watora Mari featuring Diamond Platinumz whilst Winky D only has one with Beenie Man, for My Woman.


In conclusion, based on the information above, it is clear that Jah Prayzah is a better artist between him and Winky D. Jah Prayzah has more videos that have surpassed the one million views mark, has a larger following on YouTube, and his videos tend to stay on the charts for longer periods.
