Kenyan music is now international thanks to rapper alias Khaligraph Jones. Anyway, let’s be honest, Kenyan music crossed Africa’s borders a long time ago. All I mean is that his latest is release is a gamechanger. That’s all.
Papa Jones has been on a roll since the year began. If you are keen, you’ll notice that he has a new single, including songs in which he is featured, almost every three weeks.
Nameless recently featured him on the remix of Megarider. The song, which was released roughly three few weeks ago, has been getting massive airplay on local TV and radio stations.
Even before the dust settles, Khaligraph is back with yet another single. And no, we are not complaining. In fact, we couldn’t be any happier.
Yesterday, Khaligraph dropped his latest single dubbed Superman and belive you me, it’s a work of art. Just like wine, this 28-year-old rapper keeps getting better with time.
In the song, Khaligraph talks about his musical journey and how he became one of the biggest rappers in the game because of his sheer determination.
As expected, his rap flow was on point in the song. His lyrics were mostly in English so much so that if don’t know who Papa Jones is you would mistake it for a foreign song. Okay, I’m pushing it.
My favourite line in the song is “My passion for music drove me to the studio not of the money and hype, was dedicated and committed I made the microphone my honey and wife…”
The video which was directed by Jeff Adair was also on point. As it begins, there’s a flicker which hits the ground before Khaligraph emerges from a bush. Perhaps, this is meant to reinforce the fact that he’s a superman.
The beat, which was produced by Motif, was also superb.
Watch Superman below and tell us what you think.
Comme ci, comme ça
