Hopewell Chin'ono didn't set out to become an internet sensation when he made a song about corruption in Zimbabwe, but that's exactly what happened when he uploaded 'Dem Loot' to Twitter. The outspoken Zimbabwean journalist has been arrested three times in six months for tweets protesting graft. In a video that has gone viral, Chin'ono has released a short free-styled reggae dance-hall track, titled Dem Loot -- "They Loot" -- in which he chastises rampant state corruption in the southern African country.
