Killer T was in the UK recently and he stopped by BBC studios to do an interview with DJ Edu on BBC1 Xtra and it wasnt that good.

Perhaps you haven’t heard, let me tell you Killer T broke that queen’s language from left to right, but we dont blame him, seriously, its a second language, plus maybe the pressure?!

At one point the Chairman actually had to explain in Shona what he wanted to say, asked when he started music, Killer T replied, “… let me explain it in Shona, ndovanhu (ghetto youths) vainzwisisa ngoma rangu.” Another moment was when he was asked to explain the meaning of his recent track ‘Bvunza Tinzwe‘  he just said “Yayayaya…the manager can explain” to which his manager Kudzai “Supa” Biston came in to help.

Since this interview dropped it has been shared ‘like seriously’ on social media and has even gathered over 50,000 combined views on Youtube. You can check the full interview below:

Fans & Celebs Pouring Sympathy

Some fans have taken an initiative to support the Zimbabwean dancehall artist over his infamous interview.

Bee Tsitsi Muchuwa

Chirungu (English) is not a sign of intelligence. Please sit down and be humble. #KillerT

We can only rise by lifting others. Those who can read and write, add or subtract, think they have made it in life.

As Africans i personally think we should embrace each other and make Africa a better place for our children.

I mastered English language quite well, though i might not pronounce words as expected but i try ko chirungu chaukauya nengarava ka ,chimwe chakadonhera mumvura, But its not an achievement at all.

Never make fun of someone who speaks broken English. It means they know another language. The only language most probably spoken in hell is ENGLISH.

Swahili,Zulu,Shona, Nyanja,luganda and kikuyu etc is spoken in Heaven. OH YES

ENGLISH REMAINS A LANGUAGE AMONGST MANY OTHER LANGUAGES. IT IS NOT A MEASURING INSTRUMENT FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE ABILITY TO SPEAK IT and neither is it a measuring instrument of intelligence

Plot Mhako

Killer T to me is a revolutionary. I hope the conversation mutates to change

Carl Joshua Ncube

We validate ourselves too much with the English language. our ignorance is so apparent right now with this killer t interview, but like I said Zimbabweans must not think literacy and an accent is the same as intelligence

 

Comments as seen in HMetro

The video is HERE. Killer T just dropped the video that made news a few weeks ago with viral pictures. Like the one Killer T was looking all fresh and the ones with Killer T in a coffin. These pictures made noise for a lot of reason, but we are here to talk about the fresh video, right?

Watch the brand new video from Killer T, the Chairman, for Bvunza Tinzwe. The video for the song which asks questions about death and what happens after, was shot at a cemetery and yes, features an almost scary moment when a coffin with Killer T in it was opened!

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.

Although some have went on to call out the artist for allegedly bleaching to look like American celebrities and not being proud of his roots, many have applauded the transformation.

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.

The only part of any list we care about, is the dancehall part and the freshly released NAMA nominees list is no exception.

More like last year (link for ZIMA) two artist are representing us this year which are Kelvin Kusikwenyu aka Killer T with one nomination for Outstanding Song (Takangodaro) and Wallace Chirimuko aka Winky D with two nominations for Outstanding Male and Album (Gafa Futi).

As suspected Winky D is head to head with Jah Prayzah for his two nominations although Jah is leading with three nominations also facing Killer T for Outstanding Song (Mudhara Vachauya).

Empress Fungie (Fungisai Zvakavapano Mashavave) is also on the list, but we are not sure if she is officially Zimdancehall yet.

It would be interesting to see if the two Zimdancehall artists manage to stop Jah Prayzah from scooping all the nominations at the Award show set for February 18 at 7 Arts in Avondale, Harare.
