Kenya is on the list of Africa’s top hip hop artist thanks to Octopizzo. The P.Y.D.U (Put your drinks up) rapper is on a high and the world knows it. Landing on number 13, he shares the countdown with Olamide, Ice Prince, K’Naan and Phyno.
The news doesn’t come as much of a shock to his manager whose name he wishes remain hidden said,
“We are used to it. In fact he should be in the top 5. So all the other Kenyan rappers should take a back seat”
Octopizzo is one of the coolest lyricists in Kenya and it definitely shows. The ‘Ivo ivo’ rapper as been on a high with various tours all over Europe and America.
Not only is he into the music, he is currently the UNHCR youth ambassador, he recently launched his initiative ‘I have a name’ with Oxfam to help youth refugees in Kenya. Also hailing from Kibera, he has done plenty to help the youth in the area. Seems all his hard work has paid off with the recognition from the people at SA Hip hop magazine.
