Killer T Strikes a Chord with ‘Kana Ndanyura’

Not everything needs to rhyme but also very difficult to ignore the consonant arrangement of the letter K in Killer T whose real name is Kelvin Kusikwenyu. The song in focus is Kana Ndanyura. You might want to treat that as overexcitement. But this is the song. Evidenced by trending across the digital length and breadth.

The song which seemingly borrows a western Africa taste sparks a choral ignition which we would like to believe as where the genius is – Ko kana ndanyura, amaiwe ko kana ndanyura. In unison.

It surely invites echoes of a sing along, from bathrooms with soap in our eyes or in the giant HICC.

Enough blabber, Killer T is one of the most successful zimdancehall artists we have had. Obvious, right? What is the current state of the genre? Shambles. We always had a skewed philosophy. It is a borrowed genre they have told us. They however underestimated the eternal ties of urban music elements. The cultural ones. Contemporary sounds evolve. The same way urban culture in the early 2000s is different from what we have today. A 26 year old man is at war with innocent 20 year olds. Everything has been about generations and how we have moved from one apiece to the next.

Hence, dancehall would not be imagined to be at its demise. Just on its knees begging a chance to be weaned off. The recurring instances of the genre having the highest subscription on mainstream is a reminder that it has indeed grown. Has it returned to its glory days? We think they never left.
