‘Fashion police’ troll Khama Billiat

The social media was ablaze on Thursday as ‘fashion police’ trolled arguably Zimbabwe’s richest footballer Khama Billiat (net worth of R18 million) mocking him for his dress code when the national soccer team received clothing from leading boutique 4 May .

The gesture was extended by 4 May director Colbert Chimedza to motivate the national team.

Khama was clad in navy blue suit and multi-coloured sneaker that got tongues wagging with some section of the webosphere and self proclaimed fashionistas arguing that the sneaker was ‘out of touch’ with his apparel.

“Khama’s suit is on point but that tractor like sneaker is not matching with the suit.He should have worn a flat sole sneaker.The challenge is these young boys have no fashion taste , they are used to the ghetto regalia,” wrote one social media user.

However, Zim Morning Post established that the pair of ‘kicks’ that Khama was wearing are worth a fortune and are a must have in the wardrobe of any metrosexual man.

Juventus star striker Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his penchant for fashion and style and he has ‘kodak moments’ wearing an almost similar sneaker to that of Khama- and he was also rocking a suit!

The pair of sneakers that Khama was rocking is a Dolce & Gabbana Superking which cost 675 pounds which is equivalent to RTGS$2670 on the prevailing official inter -bank rate.

That amount is enough to pay at least five lowest paid civil servants basing on the salary accord that was reached between government and civil servants this week.

The lowest-paid worker in the civil service will now be getting $570, up from $441.

So against that background, despite the troll from ‘fashion police’, it is an ugly fact that Khama was dressing expensive resonating with a trending dancehall song titled ‘Smart Inotangira Kutsoka’ performed by Enzo Ishall!

Meanwhile, although there were logistical hiccups, the Warriors are geared for the crunch tie against Congo-Brazzaville to be played on Sunday at the National Sports Stadium.

The cheapest ticket is selling at $10 and a bumper crowd is expected to rally behind the Warriors.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa is hosting the troop at the State House on Friday afternoon.
