Popcaan Hit With Beer Can, But Delivers In Zimbabwe

Despite delivering a very good performance to the thousands in attendance at the Harare International Conference Centre in Zimbabwe. Jamaican Dancehall star Popcaan, set was partially interrupted by a missile throwing incident.

Popcaan fell victim to the excitement as halfway through his set, the 'raving king' was hit with a can of beer and sustained a minor injury on his hand. One fan stormed the stage in protest and vented his anger on the diminutive chanter.

Deviating from the mishap, Popcaan continued his performance as if nothing had transpired, proclaiming his love for the Zimbabwean people.

Born Andrea Sunderland, the 24-year-old artiste reeled off several of his hits including 'Fry Yiy', 'Badmind a Kill Dem,' 'She A Gwaan Good', 'The System' and 'Diss Mi Friend' among others to the crowd's approval.

In a bid to display his love for the fans, Popcaan threw his jacket into the crowd evoking  a mini-wrestling contest as everyone wanted a piece of it.

But it was Winky D aka the 'Ninja President', with the backing of a live band, that stole the night from the Jamaican; maybe because Popcaan opted to use recorded tracks instead.

Dressed in red pair of jeans and a matching jacket, Winky D made a grand appearance on stage after asking the engineer to turn the lights down before blitzing on to the stage amid loud cheers from his adoring fans.

Winky D's moment of magic came when he performed his self-praise song 'Messi WeReggae' and Popcaan could not help but smile in appreciation. Earlier, Popcaan formerly known as the Gaza Prefect had singled out Ninja President as one of the most talented Dancehall artistes in the country and Winky D complemented it with a top-tier performance.
