“We are travelling with our entire band to the UK for the first time. We are going to be using the live band as usual back home and that will work as preparations for the April show,” said Killer T’s manager Kudzai ‘Supa’ Biston.
Speaking through his manager, Freeman expressed to be touring with a live band.
“We are going to perform in the UK, Birmingham with a live band in April. We have been demanding such arrangements for a while and we are happy that there is a promoter who has addressed our concerns.
“This will help us leave a good impression whenever we go on stage. When most of the artistes come to perform in Zimbabwe, they come with their full entourage and we want the same to happen to Zimbabwean performers,” said Kafelapanjia, popularly known as Watta.
Freeman will use the concert to celebrate his recent NAMA success, where he scooped the album of the year and male artiste of the year awards.
