Self-proclaimed OG Khaligraph Jones has spoken on his relationship with fellow rapper Octopizzo claiming that the Number Nane finest hates him so much.
On Wednesday, Papa Jones shared a photo posing with Sauti Sol during the video shoot of their song Rewind, attracting a comment from a fan who praised his progress in the game, noting that such things piss off Octo.
“Exactly 1 Year ago,The OG and @sautisol Dropped REWIND. still a banger, more blessings my brothers ata kama wengine wenu Mumekonda sai” reads Khali’s caption on the photo.
In a quick rejoinder, the Ngori hit maker responded saying that Octopizzo hates him so much and he can’t engage with him because he doesn’t know the price of a diaper.
“Hizi ndo vitu Octopizzo akiona anazidisha beef, but Og ni OG” Commented a fan called 1989yayoo.
Khali’s response “@1989yayoo Pizzo the de king and you know it, Jamaa ananichukia na roho yake yote, aliniambia haezi ongea na watu hawajui bei ya Diaper.”
Recently in an interview on Mambo Mseto, Octopizzo disclosed that he has not been in communication with Papa Jones for the past three years.
“The last time I spoke to Khaligraph Jones was two years ago. I, however, regularly keep in touch with King Kaka and Sauti Sol’s Polycarp because they are real people. During our conversations, rarely do we speak about music. Most of the time, our chats revolve around the state of Kenya, family – our spouses and children,” said Octo.
The duo, who have often been pitted against each other for the title of “King of Rap” have on different occasions expressed interests to work with each other.
Octo even made it very clear that, they can collaborate as long as the projects brings in money.
“I won’t work with an artiste for the sake of it, for the sake of hype, for the sake of giving in to pressure from certain quarters. I would work with a musician because I am passionate of the project we’re pursuing. I am ready to work with Khaligraph Jones so long as our partnership will bring me money and increase my fan base; that is what matters most to me,” added Octopizzo.
Khaligraph Jones Interview
Interview in Coke studio
KenyaBuzz: What is the story behind your name?
Khaligraph: There is no story behind the name. I thought it was a cool name that suited me and my personality and I decided to go with it.
KenyaBuzz: What impact would you say platforms like Coke Studio have had on your journey?
Khaligraph: I’d say it gave me visibility. Coke Studio is big and their audience is all over Africa and it’s always a good look on your career when you have a big brand like Coke behind you.
KenyaBuzz: What artists are you collaborating with this season?
Khaligraph: I have been paired up with one of the biggest and most influential artists in Africa, RudeBoy and it’s exciting because we are different individuals with different personalities and different vibes so we’ll make magic.
KenyaBuzz: What new projects should we expect from you this year?
Khaligraph: I have put out dope visuals for my album (Testimony 1990) and 2019 expect more dope visuals for the tracks on the album.
KenyaBuzz: Favourite Kenyan old school rapper?
Khaligraph: Abass Kubaff, and I have reasons why I say that. I remember when I was starting out, someone gave me Abbas’ contacts and I called him and told him that I was a rapper and I had a song and was interested in working with him. He got back to me and invited me to the studio. For someone on his level to agree to work with me then was great and I appreciated that. I get a lot of calls from artists and unfortunately I can’t work with everybody so I understand his situation. But for him to agree to work with me back then is something I will forever respect. That is why he remains to be my favourite old school rapper. Even now there’s a lot of rappers who can’t match him skill and his talent.
