Zim dancehall act Killer T is set to rekindle his romance with fans when he performs at the Zim Dancehall Shutdown gig slated for this Friday at the City Sports Centre. Killer T, who is now popularly known as the “Chairman”, said he relished performing at his favourite venue, the City Sports Centre. “It is back to business and I promise fans a great show. There is going to be a lot of energy and vibe going at the gig. We did it during Sting 2014 and now we are back again to do what we know best. Isu tirikutsvaga bag (This is serious business we are looking for money),” Killer T said.

Killer T, who shot to stardom courtesy of his chant “Po po po po”, has upped his game and is back to his winning ways.

Since his last performance at Sting 2014, the “Chairman” has claimed his rightful spot in Zim dancehall and this time he is not taking any prisoners.

He has slammed factionalism that has rocked the genre saying it was counter-productive.

The “Makarova Gunners” hitmaker is on record as saying that factionalism had no place in Zim dancehall through his oft-quoted slogan “Isu hatiite zvemagroups”.

This was in reference to so-called camps and groups that glorify their idols thereby dividing fans according to favourite artistes.

The more visible groups include “Maninja”, “Mabhanditi”, “Danger Zone”, “Ndururani”, “Masoja” and “Mafia 19”.

“One thing that people should understand is that mangoma haasi nhabvu. You find that in football there is Dynamos, Highlanders, ZPC Kariba, CAPS United and so on.

“And fans have to choose one club, but in Zim dancehall music should be just music and nothing else,” Killer T once told The Herald Entertainment.

Asked about Kenny Mandebvu whom he sings about in some of his songs, Killer T, said Mandebvu – who hails from Chitungwiza – was introduced to him by his producer Kutso.

“Ana Kenny ndomadhara edu vanotisupporter,” he said.

Born Kelvin Kusikwenyu, Killer T said he took music as a business and would want to deal with everybody.

Currently, Killer T is putting up his own studio in Mbare to allow him to record anytime he feels like.

Besides Killer T, other artistes billed to perform are Soul Jah Love, Kinnah, Dhadza D, Terminator and Winky D.
