It appears rapper Khaligraph Jones has resolved to take matters into his own hands in a bid to rescue the local music industry.
The high-flying rapper first took the bull by the horns about a fortnight ago when he took issue with local media personalities for overplaying foreign music at the expense of Kenyan content.
What followed was a heated debate and a seemingly lukewarm attempt by media players to play more local content. But according to Khaligraph Jones, playlists on some radio stations have since been restored to default settings.
It is perhaps for this reason that the Khaligraph Jones has decided to be the change that Kenyan musicians need. The ‘Juu ya Ngori’ rapper has hinted at launching a new radio station that will play strictly Kenyan music.
Khaligraph Jones dropped the hint on Instagram last night without divulging more details.
“Radio station coming soon. #PlayKeMusic?,” posted Khaligraph Jones.
This comes days after Khaligraph Jones disclosed that it took over 1200 songs before his music was accepted on Kenyan radio.
