Zimdancehall chanter Kelvin Kusikwenyu, popularly known as Killer T, will tomorrow release his album titled Concious of a Diary amid sparking a longstanding online debate about his allegiance to the first family.

On Wednesday Killer T posted on Facebook a picture of himself with the first lady, Auxillia Mnangagwa, wishing her a happy birthday.

Taking to his Facebook and Instagram accounts last week, the Bvunza Tinzwe singer uploaded a hearty snap standing next to Mnangagwa

However, it is yet to be ascertained whether last week’s storm was meant to publicise the much-awaited album.

If the reaction on social media is anything to go by, Killer T has to face a moment of truth tomorrow.

“I just wanna say happy birthday kuna Amai Mwari akuwedzereyi makore akawandisa ekurarama muchengetwe na Ishe nhasi izuva renyu (may God grant you more years of life as well as take care of you) enjoy your birthday Momz,” Killer T captioned the picture with the first lady.

However, most of his followers took to the comment section to register their disdain over what they viewed as a public display of his political alignment.

“Nxaaa this is y the country is not going anywhere (sic)… these influential people are looking for money thru blood suckers #Demloot,” wrote @anesuchanyau on Instagram.

“Chairman makuda kushaya mafns yamatanga iyi vanhu havana kufara nayo (you will lose fans as a result of this because people are not happy about this,” @hastingsisa1234 also commented.

Local musicians have often been subjected to scrutiny and criticism when they openly praise or endorse political figures, particularly those that are in the ruling party.

In some instances, perceived political ties to Zanu PF have threatened to derail artistes’ future projects with names like Jah Prayzah quickly coming to mind.

Other social media users accused Killer T, who is set to launch a new project this week, of soliciting for favours as has been done by other artistes who dined with politicians in the past.

“Asi wakuda kuzoitwawo provincial hero kani?

Ndopaunoona kuti Zanu pa strategy dzeku campaign kumberi .yatobata ma ghetto youth ese,” commented Artwell Nheya Makaudze on Facebook.

According to Baba Sponono TK Jeche, the 31-year-old should also post publicly about the government’s injustices.

“Ndoomacelebrity akadhakwa aya asingaonekwe kana pachitadzwa. When censorship and massacre goes on munenge makanyarara mongo appear aamahappy birthday kuna mai Mnangagwa. What a disgrace.”
