Farewell to daddy of dancehall

ripHARARE Stereo One International DJ Daddy Distress, who was laid to rest in Seke last month, is being remembered by the online community .

Zimbabwes reggae dancehall community has opened a forum for tributes on social networking site, Facebook. Many said he would be greatly missed in the dancehall scene.

Daddy Distress was remembered for his dancehall hits and for his long running on-and-off beef with Winky D.

He was mentored by the white rasta Isaka from reggae crew African Exodus Sound based in Chitungwiza, and was one of the 90s dancehall youths who famously used to tear up the dance as he sang to various dancehall tunes such as Punnany and the Mud Up, lighting up the Rumours Night Spot aka Agony Centre. Daddy D also performed in Chitungwiza Hall.

He was later to join King Stereo One International as an MC. His feud with Winky D was sparked off with Winkys hit song Zhing Zhong, which he claimed cast doubt on his integrity. Towards the end, Daddy D recorded music with King Labash.
