Zim dancehall diva Ninja Lipsy has distanced herself from the common trend of drug use in local dancehall circles. “I’m a sober-minded professional who is not into the use of drugs. Personally, I think dancehall artists should try to portray positive messages both in their music and life,” she said.
Her remarks came at a time when several dancehall acts were linked to the abuse of drugs, ranging from marijuana (mbanje) to bronco (cough syrup).
Lipsy became an overnight celebrity when she featured in Zim dancehall pioneer Winky D’s hit single Tairirana PaFirst Sight released in 2011. Of late, Lipsy has released a string of singles that have gained her a fair share of the Zim dancehall stakes.
She is currently riding high with her singles Makanyora Wiri and Big Up (Mabhebhi Anotsvaga Mari).

Some have been forced out of the business and former prominent entertainment joints have been left empty. Venues such as Flava Town, Afripot, Tops Night Club, Motoring Club, Soul City and Gulliver’s Club have scaled down, while Chapter One Leisure Centre, Stinos and Cannibal Inn have been pushed out of business.
