Amongst fans who have given a nod to the song, a staunch Winky D fanatic identified as Tina Musonza, explained why Winky D is still relevant on the local music scene.

“Winky D has proven to be relevant on the local music scene. Winky D has been well known as an artiste who proffers solutions to societal issues. His songs reflect how the society is at the moment where love is non existent but he rewinds the clock back, reminding people that love still exists.

Through visual images on the video of his track Akayenda he challenges people’s brains to think beyond money, material things, and fame and reminds them that love is the most important aspect of the world,” commented Musonza.
