AWARD-WINNING Zimdancehall chanter Killer T continues to dominate the genre with his recent release of a richly-packed singles collection, Mukuru Mukuru.
Killer T’s manager, Kudzai Biston, told NewsDay Life & Style that the singles collections were meant to keep fans abreast with his new songs.
“I don’t think our fans will be overwhelmed by the release of these singles collections because they are just getting new music. We want to keep them
entertained. We have not any other alterior motive, but to just churn them out singles. This is how we work,” he said.
“There is no big difference (between the latest collection) and the last, All we are doing is just mixing music for both the ghetto youths and elders.”
The Mbare-bred chanter, who recently released another singles collection, Ghetto Rinenharo, which he reckons is a thanksgiving offering to his fans, who have
kept faith in him following accusations by some music pundits that he had abandoned dancehall, having taken up a mellow sound that appealed to more mature
Killer T, who is arguably the most-sought-after Mbare musician, said if there was a chance, he would do a collaboration with afro-jazz rising star, Tongai
“Greatman” Gwaze, who once revealed he was a fan of Killer T.
“Yes, I met Greatman before and we talked about this. If we get another opportunity to meet again, we can organise to have this collaboration,” Killer T said.
The Ndamuda hit-maker, who is scheduled to perform in the United Kingdom and Germany in August this year, said his music targeted both the young and older
“The shows we have had so far have attracted quite a number of fans abroad. This is because Killer T produces songs that have a strong message that can help
improve people’s lives in times of hardships, including giving answers to social problems,” Biston said.
