WE are only in March of 2017 and Killer T is already breaking the Internet.
Social media has gone into a frenzy for the past few weeks after a picture of Killer T with a new look or as the ladies would put it “looking fine!”, made its way into our phones, laptops and literally everywhere.
So whats the fuss about a picture, you ask? Well if you knew the Mbare-bred chanter, who rose to fame after dropping ‘Makarova Gunners‘ a few years ago, before the endless tours to the UK, before he could afford to own a ride, before he had nice clothes, well you would understand what the fuss is about.
Killer T was once a Mbare hustler, just trying to find a living. The picture has been hailed by many as a symbol of rugs to riches. It has also sparked a trend on social media, with a before and after picture (below) titled ‘you [are] not ugly, you [are] just broke’ implying the transformation of the singer is a result of his success that has bagged him a few thousands.
As much as Zimdancehall has been seen as a Ghetto culture, a hobby for the jobless Ghetto-yuts, it has proved to be a viable and well paying employer for those who do well, Killer T is just one of the few that have managed to turn a new page in their lives through it. Winky D, Ninja Lipsy, Souljah Love, Seh Calaz are just a few examples of some artists who managed to shine in the game.
