There has been a lot of mixed feelings over Killer T ‘s BBC 1Xtra interview in which he failed to interpret the meaning of his hit track Bvunza Tinzwe in English.
Killer T, who struggled with his English during the interview with DJ Edu on the popular Destination Africa show, has received sympathy from Zimbabweans on social media.
Here are some of the comments:

Chirungu (English) is not a sign of intelligence. Please sit down and be humble. #KillerT

We can only rise by lifting others. Those who can read and write, add or subtract, think they have made it in life.
As Africans i personally think we should embrace each other and make Africa a better place for our children.
I mastered English language quite well, though i might not pronounce words as expected but i try ko chirungu chaukauya nengarava ka ,chimwe chakadonhera mumvura, But its not an achievement at all.
Never make fun of someone who speaks broken English. It means they know another language. The only language most probably spoken in hell is ENGLISH.
Swahili,Zulu,Shona, Nyanja,luganda and kikuyu etc is spoken in Heaven. OH YES
ENGLISH REMAINS A LANGUAGE AMONGST MANY OTHER LANGUAGES. IT IS NOT A MEASURING INSTRUMENT FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE ABILITY TO SPEAK IT and neither is it a measuring instrument of intelligence
Killer T to me is a revolutionary. I hope the conversation mutates to change

We validate ourselves too much with the English language. our ignorance is so apparent right now with this killer t interview, but like I said Zimbabweans must not think literacy and an accent is the same as intelligence
