Rapper Khaligraph Jones – or the OG, if you like – released a video of his much-awaited project “Yes Bana” on Thursday.
The jam in which he features Sauti Sol’s Bien who does the catchy hook had an impressive 31,000 views within its first hour and some 1377 comments from adoring fans.
The rapper who is riding the coattails of his international success took the opportunity to quash his beef with fellow rapper Octopizzo, saying in the jam:
“Mimi sina beef an Ohanga, Ohanga hunitaki kwa nini.. mbona usifanye track na mimi, tutop hizi chart za mjini,?” he raps.
The two appeared to have fallen out over the title of who is the Kenyan rap king- with both of them on diffferent times claiming the glory.
Their beef had escalated after Khaligraph claimed that Octopizzo’s success was a result of being bankrolled by his mzungu wife.
Two years later, Octopizzo in his jam Noma Ni threw subliminal shade at the 1960 rapper saying : “Hizo chocha za kurap faster buda jo come slowly. Niliwapeleka kaburini so wanajua ni mazishi, na kwa hio matanga yenu bana husikii bado tutadishi.”
And it appear that Khaligraph who now fancies himself the best rappper in Nigeria with a new name- Ikechukwu- has put the beef to bed.
In the same track, Khaligraph invites fellow rapper Nyanhinki to do a collabo with him, saying the their combined skills will top the charts for days.
