Shinsoman dispels mental instability rumours

Released on New Year’s Eve, the song titled Akupenga is in response to the allegations that the musician, born Romeo Anthony, suffered a mental condition in December leading to him being hospitalised in South Africa.

Speculation was rife when he failed to attend the King of Dancehall press conference and the subsequent show headlined by Jamaican Turbulence, raising more questions than answers.

However, rumours in the dancehall circles later suggested that Shinsoman had been taken to rehabilitation in South Africa battling a drug abuse complication.

Speaking to Standardlife&style, the musician’s manager Joe Machingura discredited the reports describing them as the “work of the devil”.

“I have been receiving many phone calls enquiring of Shinsoman’s mental health status which is actually shocking to me since he is not mentally disturbed,” said Machingura.

Despite Machingura dismissing the allegations, the matter is being received with mixed feelings among the dancehall fraternity.

Social networks like Facebook have been awash with posts fuelling the speculation, with some saying the Mawaya Waya singer’s behaviour since December has been questionable.

One of the posts read: “Hanzi Shinsoman akupenga kwahi izvo atanga kumhanyisa vanhu makuseni achibvisa hembe zvirikunzi izvo azoendeswa kuGomo Hospital munoionawo sei? #maibesa# (It is said Shinsoman has gone mad. They say he stripped naked and chased around people in the morning and he has been taken to Harare Hospital).”

Meanwhile, another Mbare-bred dancehall chanter Killah T (born Kelvin Kusikwenyu) recently released a song Makazviwana Kupi, also discrediting the rumours.

Apparently, Killah T was in December said to have been arrested for rape and in the song he dispels the rumours.

He also lambasts people who have been peddling the speculation of both his alleged rape and Shinsoman’s mental disorder.
