Khaligraph Jones receives another prestigious award nomination two months after winning AFRIMMA

Khaligraph Jones is currently the most successful rapper in Kenya. The Kayole rapper was crowned the best ‘Best Rap Act’ in the 2018 African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) which was held in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Fresh from winning AFRIMMA, Khaligraph has been nominated for yet another continental award – Soundcity MVP Awards Festival.

The Soundcity MVP Awards Festival is an event presented by Soundcity TV which awards plaques to musicians and performers across Africa. Since 2007, the winners are chosen by the viewers and fans by popular vote [sic]

Stiff competition

Khaligraph will be going head to head with Africa’s rap heavyweight including Ghana’s Sarkodie, Nigeria’s M.I. Abaga, Phyno and Falz and South Africa’s Nasty C, A.K.A and Kwesta.

Sauti Sol have also been nominated for Soundcity MVP Awards in two categories – ‘Video Of The Year’ and ‘Song Of The Year’  for their song ‘Short n Sweet’ with Nyashinski.
