Top Kenyan rappers Octopizzo and Khaligraph Jones have been exchanging harsh words on social media after Khaligraph led a group of artists to Deputy President William Ruto's Karen residence last week for a meeting to discuss ways the Government can help entertainers beat the hardship occasioned by the Covid1-9 pandemic. Octopizzo went on a ranting spree and lashed out at Papa Jones, claiming that he is an opportunist.
He implied that Khaligraph and other artists who went to meet Ruto were just after their personal interests. Their never-ending beef continued after Octopizzo disagreed with Khaligraph over the strict measures imposed by the Government to curtail the spread of the deadly virus.
While Khaligraph pleaded with the President to reopen the country, Octo wants the lockdown to continue.
The Namba Nane rapper went live on his IG page and said that the Government should not lift the lockdown following the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases. He claimed that 50 grandmothers in Kibera have succumbed to the virus and according to him, the country is under lockdown for the sake of such aged people who are at a high risk of contracting the virus.
Khaligraph's brother Lamaz Span, who is also a rapper, has posted a cryptic message that seems to be aiming a dig at Octopizzo after President Uhuru's lifted some of the tough measures imposed to curtail the spread of the virus. In the post, he mocked Octopizzo saying that despite him supporting the tough rules imposed by the Government, he was not invited to State House on Labour Day, and still, he was left out when renowned artists visited Ruto.
''Kuna jamaa amepiga campaign hapa IG ati tusifunguliwe nchi na bado hakuitwa statehouse na pia Kwa VP hatukumweka kwa list 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.punguza kasheshe .... ma bouncer na waiter kesho ndio watipiwe wa first tukizidi... 🔥🔥'' the cryptic message reads.
