Vera Sidika says she has no beef with OG since their bleaching incident: He’s my favorite rapper 

Socialite Vera Sidika has denied that he’s not in good terms with rapper Khaligraph Jones despite their constant back and forths online.

In fact, the socialite said that Jones, who is one of the best rapper in Kenya, is actually her favorite.

She was speaking in a question and answer session on social media where she revealed the two have locked horns different times online but that doesn’t mean they hate each other.


Vera Sidika and rapper Khaligraph Jones first fired at each other sometimes in May 2017 following their bleaching incident. Since the two have been trolling each other online.

Sidika said the beef was all fake.

“The beef was fake, and people did not know that we created the beef. If the fans think we have beef then let them think so,” Vera Sidika confessed.

Khaligraph to Octopizzo: I’m thinking about working with Jay Z, Cassper and AKA, you continue rapping about me

Khaligraph Jones is not focusing on his freenemy Octopizzo sending subliminal shots. He’s past that now. He claims he has a greater vision that needs focus.

People are trying to bring back the beef thing. They should realize that in the past two years, I’ve refrained from that. I was dissing with the guy like three years ago. It is 2018, I’m 28 years, I want to do collabos with the likes of Jay Z, Cassper and AKA. So taking me back to Octo limits my progression,” said Jones after getting word that Octopizzo has dissed him in new track.

Done with dis tracks

Asked whether he’s heard of it, Jones said he hasn’t had time to listen to it yet but it doesn’t matter.

“I haven’t had a chance to listen to it. If I get a chance I’ll listen to it. I’m always listening to people’s albums. Why would I respond to disses right now? 


“You know I’m the OG. If I was to diss a person, I’d have done that. Mimi siekangi mtu. Octo nimemueka on the side. I feel that story pulls me back. Octo is always dissing me in most of his songs but I never take it. If he feels like he needs to rap about me, it’s all good.”

The diss, which is in the track ‘Noma Ni’, Octopizzo attacked the rapper asking him to kill himself if.

“Niliwapeleka kaburini so, wanajua ni mazishi na kwa hiyo matanga yenu jo huskii tutadish. Na kama bado una-hate on Octopizzo kill yourself and die.”

Speculations galore as DJ Khalid starts following Diamond Platnumz on Instagram

American mix master and top producer DJ Khalid has sparked speculations after he followed Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz on Instagram.

DJ Khalid’s decision to follow Diamond could be largely due to the fact that the ‘Zilipendwa’ hit maker recently inked a deal with conic French wine brand Luc Belaire to be its ambassador.
