His fame soared when he released the ‘platinum’ album, Ngoma Ndaimba, but for some reason now, ZimDancehall Chanter, Killer T, seems to be losing the Dancehall chairmanship if performances at the Carnival Zimdancehall gig are anything to go by.
Chairman as the singer is fondly known had a lukewarm performance as his biggest let down that at some point, the ‘ghetto yuts’ waved goodbye at him, as an indication for him to vamoose from the stage.
These could be signs that his reign might be coming to and end as his set was not consistent. The Chanter wearily tried to raise the bar towards the end having realised the negative reaction from his fans.
Killer T’s songs such as Jehovha Jireh which usually leave many in delirium failed to rise to the occasion resulting in many concluding that he is more of a recording artiste than a performer.
It was hard for the chanter to match the standards that had been set by fellow chanter Seh Calaz who had performed before him.
Other artistes who performed on the day such as Ras Caleb showed great potential by rising to the occasion.
Last week, Killer T again performed at the Harare Gardens just after Soul Jah Love and had a hard time matching his popularity and fame with fans and critics arguing that his biggest advantage is that his music is now known.
It seems Harare Gardens is not the favourable of ‘hunting’ places for the chanter as his performance was below par.
