Killer T plays it safe on Mashoko Anopfuura [Album Review]
Killer T launched his highly anticipated album, Mashoko Anopfuura at Club 1+1. The album reportedly bagged at least $70 000 dollars from celebrated socialites Genius "Ginimbi" Kadungure, Benjani Mwaruwaru and Albert "Chief Albert" Kadambi.
A lot of people had different expectations of the album but Killer T doubled down on the winning formula, a catchy hook with a signature beat we are all to familiar with. Fans has responded kindly to his new offering with standout tracks like Hondo Yenzara which features Jah Prayzah and Kufamba KwaPaurosi already amassing over 100 000 views each on popular video sharing site Youtube. These figures are obviously understated given these songs have been uploaded on multiple profiles each with a significant viewer-ship. What is more impressive is that it's all without an visuals for the song.
His critics have pointed that his sound is monotonous and lacks creativity. But to his credit Killer T tried to try something new on a few number of tracks. Handigumbuke and Mweya Mutsvene actually sound like the type of songs Jah Prayzah is famous for. The tracks were produced by Munya Vialy. On Waidongerera Killer T actually goes Rhumba style and he even does it perfectly.
Overally Killer T delivered an album which will resonate well with his fans but he did little to win fans. However he experimented a little, probably a subtle test of the sound which he is planning to adopt. I expect Killer T to continue experimenting with new sounds although his is cautious about it as he clearly does not want to alienate his die hard fans. Whether he will be able navigate this precarious dilemma is yet to be seen, but for his growth he has to try.
