Desmond "Stunner" Chideme has emerged as Zimbabwe's king of bling.

In a survey carried out on The Herald website pitting Stunner and Mudiwa Mutandwa, a gospel music rapper, the "Godo" hitmaker was an overwhelming favourite.

Stunner's popularity had waned in recent past after the release of his infamous sex tape with pin-up girlfriend and fashionista Pokello Nare. Out of 208 people who voted, Stunner got 119 votes whilst Mudiwa garnered 89 votes translating to 57 percent compared to Mudiwa's 43 percent. The "Battle of Bling" commenced when the two rappers performed at the finale of My Own Boss reality show last month. Dressed in a smart jacket, matching black trousers and a pair of glass shoes, Stunner was first to take to the stage and quickly "anointed" himself as the true "Boss of Swag." "I know I have been in the news for good and bad things but as you can see when it comes to fashion I am a trendsetter," Stunner said much to the delight of the audience.

Stunner then went to sing the self-praising song "Godo". After a good performance, Stunner received a standing ovation. Not to be outdone was Mudiwa, clad in a lime green jacket and a pair of jeans, the gospel musician started by off by boasting about his academic qualifications, describing himself as the "best university student to graduate last year." He then sang his famous song "Taita Mari" and businessman Philip Chiyangwa joined the rapper on stage as the house went ablaze with everyone singing along to the chorus.
