Among the pioneers of Kenyan HipHop, Abbas and Bamboo burst into the local music industry as the K-South hip-hop group. At the time, the group composed of three members, Bamboo (Tim Kimani) KC (Abbas’ younger brother) and Abbas (formerly Doobeez). Founded in 1995, their name is an abbreviation of Kariobangi South, an estate in Nairobi where they were based.
Abbas took to his social media page to fire shots at Bamboo following critics that the group was really riding low in the Hip Hop scene. This is what Abbas posted in what looked like an accusation that K South was slowing down his prowess:
“K-south this…k-south that….going solo was the best thing that happened…cant do bizness with non-focused peeps…lets see whose who!!!”
