Urban Grooves musician, Roki has sparked controversy on social media after his new music video “Uchandifunga” broke the local record as the fastest song to hit a million views on Youtube.
Roki’s offering becomes the first video in Zimbabwe to amass over 1 million views in just four days.
Following this astonishing achievement, many social media critics have raised their concerns over this massive gain in such a short period of time.
Some went as far as accusing him of buying views on Youtube while another section applauded him for his major comeback.
Here are some of the reactions from social media;
Can we conclude that Roki bought views? 800K views gain in a minute? pic.twitter.com/Iypoy9eJ4R

If he had been getting 250k views a day ndaibvuma hangu but he was getting just over 135k views a day for 3 days and then boom 800k views in one day. Something is not adding up. #Roki

We can’t erase the fact that Java is popular, so is Roki too and talented. However, when it comes to influencing voting intentions, I don’t see a significant relationship.

😅 During the weekend I said, the influence Java has had on Rocki is too much to ignore and many commented kuti let’s just celebrate Rocki’s comeback without involving Java. Now that his video has recorded 1.2M views makuti Java atenga ka views. Java wei zvakare? 😅😂
