Who Was Killer Kau?

Killer Kau, real name Sakhile Hlatshwayo (born 1998, Soweto, Gauteng, South Africa).

Killer Kau education

Killer Kau was a grade 11 student at Lavela Secondary School in Zola. Despite the fame, he is passionate about education. He was quoted saying that he cannot trade education with anything. He has bigger plans to pursue law at the university, and one day, he inspires to become a judge. It may seem like a big dream, but he is already on the right path to achieve it.

Killer Kau career

Hlatshwayo, who goes by the stage name of Killer Kau, is on the brink of fame with the single Tholukuthi Hey being produced by the renowned DJ Euphonik. He says it all started when he made a silly video of himself while chilling with friends and posted it on WhatsApp. His contacts asked him to send it to them, and, in no time, it had gone viral within his circle of friends. Since then, Killer has released more hit songs in an attempt to prove that he is not a one-hit-wonder.

As a gospel singer, he never thought he would record a house song. He sings baritone in the Stay PC Church Choir and African Heavenly Soul Singers male choir.
