The feud is said to have reached a crescendo with Layan allegedly leaking a riddim meant for Winky D to another artiste. The riddim for the song MaFeelings Pamangoma was given to Platinum Prince penned a song titled Vhum Vhum.

According to a source Layan “is not happy because according to him, Winky and his manager, Jonathan Banda, take more money than him after shows and he feels his talent is not being recognized.”

Winky D’s manager Jonathan Banda has however said “Jah man, remember these are blood brothers and if there is anything like that they will resolve it on their own. They have been through a lot together and their bond will not be disrupted by music and money,” he said.

Banda claimed the rumours were an attempt to destroy his client’s career:

“I have to go now as you know I have not been around and we are busy preparing for our weekend programme.  This is a cheap rumour and in the coming days, the truth will come out,” he said.
