ZIMDANCEHALL chanter Freeman, real name Emegy Sylvester Chizanga, was Tuesday interviewed by ZRP’s Homicide division following the killing of a third armed robber associated with him.

This is the second time Freeman has had to answer police questions about his associations, all related to armed robberies.

A police statement released Tuesday revealed the state security agency was worried about Freeman’s relations with robbery suspects.

“The ZRP confirms that musician Energy Chizanga (34) aka ”Freeman” is currently being interviewed by CID Homicide in connection with ongoing investigations into criminal allegations and association with armed robbery suspects,” read the statement on X.

His first date with the police followed Charles Chirara’s killing in 2021. Chirara, who performed bouncer duties for him, was one of the four robbers shot dead by ex-cop Joseph Nemaisa.

This year, close friend Godknows Machingura (44), a socialite and well-known music promoter based in South Africa was killed in a shootout by one of ZRP’s CID squads.

Images of Machingura and Freeman have been shared extensively on social media platforms.
