Rewinding back to the musician’s exclusive interview with state media he shed light on what makes his music unique.
Saya Killer T: “I sing what I come across every day. There are things that happen here in Mbare that are so interesting. In fact, I get inspiration from the people here. Their lifestyles, aspirations and challenges make me want to pen more songs.
“Mbare has always been associated with evil things. They say criminals and crooks are harboured in the ghetto. What they do not know is that the ghettos have many talents.
We have successful soccer players and musicians that have made it in life that were born and bred in the ghettos.
