Music producer Arnold Kamudyariwa, also known as DJ Fantan, and Zimdancehall musician Jimmy Mudereri, popularly known as Silent Killer, have put their differences aside and are working together once again. The two had been at odds since last year when Silent Killer assaulted Fantan’s younger brother, Tinashe Kamudyariwa, over an undisclosed issue. Tinashe was hospitalized after the attack, and Silent Killer was later cleared of the charges. As a result, Silent Killer was banished from Chillspot Records, which is co-owned by DJ Fantan.
However, in a recent interview with The Sunday Mail, Fantan confirmed that they have reconciled and are collaborating on a new project. He stated that they cannot allow the past to negatively impact their future and that Silent Killer will be featured on their upcoming riddim, which is set to be released soon. Silent Killer also expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating that he and Fantan had ironed out their differences and were now working together on a new production. He referred to Fantan as his mentor and role model and expressed pride in their partnership.
Silent Killer recently released a 41-song album titled “Hurungwere.” Despite their previous disagreement, this collaboration between Fantan and Silent Killer is a positive development in Zimbabwe’s music industry. It shows that artists can put aside their differences and work together to create excellent music for their fans.
