It looks like we won’t be treated to some hip-hop drama featuring Kenya’s top rap stars Khaligraph Jones and Octopizzo.
The two have had a long-standing rap beef since their dramatic fallout about a decade ago. Back and forth the two have thrown jabs at each other in their music, interviews, and social media posts.
But now, that is all a thing of the past according to an aging Khaligraph Jones. The “Khali Cartel” rapper is about to turn 28 and says he’s outgrown the drama.
In fact, he had nothing but nice things to say about his rap rival Octopizzo during an interview at Kiss100.
“I’m always trying to refrain from such, reason being I’m trying to focus on more constructive things so uhmm Octo is as young talented guy. on some real though he is young talented doing this thing, and I have seen this guy from way back where he had nothing,” said Khali.
“Just seeing him right now I feel happy for him, coz we both have the same kind of background. I’m from Kayole and he is from Kibera, and so I let the young brother do his thing, I have nothing bad to say about him. Uhmm we had issues back then, but I’m about to be 28, so I ain’t got time for that right now.”
Here’s to hoping that they finally work together on a project!
The rapper also addressed the fake news from several sources that he is the newest owner of a Sh3 Million mansion.
“No….I don’t even know, you know it’s funny how ..I just post innocently first of all let me just clarify that the house is not even my house I was actually doing a show in Kitale, so that’s where I was staying so that ain’t my house for clarification purposes,” he said.
