Khaligraph Jones’ decision to lighten up his facial skin complexion is proving incomprehensible by many.

The rapper who has been entrusted with the title – ‘Face of Kenyan hip-hop’ – has literally taken that deserving and coveted title and trashed it without a care in the world.

If you ask me, it is a mind-boggling b*tcha$$ move, especially for a major player in the African rap industry. Real OG’s who command respect could care less about looking lighter. But that’s just my opinion and to each his own.

He may have denied bleaching his skin but Kenyans have refused to be fooled.

Moving on from my personal disappointments with Khali, rapper Octopizzo has predictably joined in the furor by sharing his reaction on social media.

In the Instagram post addressed to his hip-hop brother, the ‘Tergat Gang’ rapper expresses his shock and offers a helping hand to Khaligraph Jones.

This is what he wrote:

“Ndugu Omollo, nilikua nataka nikutoe Rangi lakini sasa siwezi ju umejitoa mwenyewe 😂😂😂😂Ok this is not even funny am in shock!!,kama ni ukweli hizi risto naskia ati unajipaka aloevera then congratulations coz you just played yourself; Na Kama umecatch feelings katoe diss track coz matime we ukua na kiherehere sana.
But as my brother in hiphop kama ni self esteem issues please am open to talk to you as a peer coz sometimes the society can be harsh & am saying this coz #iCare and you are a friend.
So look for me when am back in the country. #Blacklivesmatter #beProud #beBlack#dontquit #8 🤴🏾But Kama umejitoa rangi ju ya hype then wee ni bure kabisa #PullUp #GangGang.”
