Blaqbonez claps back at Khaligraph Jones in new diss track ‘Green Blaq Green’ (Video)

If you are an avid internet user like myself then I am sure you are aware that local rapper Brian Ouko Omollo, better known as Khaligraph Jones, has been beefing with Nigeria’s Emeka Akumefule, alias Blaqbonez.

It all started when the Micasa Sucasa hitmaker was crowned Africa’s Best Hip hop act at Soundcity MVP awards. He beat the likes of Falz, Kwesta, Sarkodie, Medikal, Reminisce, Ricky Rick, Zakwe and, wait for it, Blaqbonez.

A day after the awards’ ceremony, this lad who if you ask me stood the least chance to bag the coveted award, took to social media to blast Soundcity and Khaligraph.

Blaqbonez explained that he should have been awarded instead because apparently he’s the best rapper in Africa. He also vowed to release a diss to Papa Jones the following day.

His sentiments provoked Khaligraph Jones so much so that the Kayole-bred rapper and released a diss track dubbed Best Rapper In Nigeria.

In the song, Papa Jones makes fun of Blaqbonez while lambasting him for rapping to Afrobeat and claiming that it is Hip Hop.

Khaligraph told the Nigerian artiste that he is the best rapper in Africa while describing himself as the G.O.A.T which stands for Greatest Of All Time.

To add insult to the wound, Khaligraph bragged how he beat Blaqbonez in front of his people, adding that he should wait for the next season if he is dissatisfied.

Hours later, Blaqbonez fired back at Khaligraph with Green Blaq Green which is a deviation from his usual Afrobeat style. Maybe, just maybe, he listened to Khaligraph afterall.

In the track, he claims that Khaligraph looks like he’s 52 based on his face and tells him to stop clout-chasing because he is never going to blow up in Nigeria. Therefore he should stop trying.

Blaqbonez also stated that he’s not afraid of Khaligraph, adding that if at all there’s any Kenyan that he holds in high esteem then it’s Eliud Kipchoge.

While I must admit that both diss tracks are really dope because of the tight punchlines and cheeky rhymes, both you and I know that Khaligraph carried the day.

Put some respect on Khaligraph’s name!

Kenyan rapper Brian Ouko Omollo, better known as Khaligraph Jones, has managed to achieve feats that most of his counterparts can only dream of. I therefore feel that it’s about time he gets the respect that he deserves.

A few days ago, the Songea hitmaker was crowned Africa’s Best Hip hop act at Soundcity MVP awards beating music heavyweights such as Falz, Kwesta, Sarkodie, Medikal, Reminisce, Ricky Rick and Zakwe.

While a number of Kenyans, especially his die hard fans like yours truly, celebrated this milestone, which is no mean feat, some people weren’t too pleased since they are not used to Kenyan artists bagging such prestigious award.

Case in point is a 23-year-old rapper known as Blaqbonez who was also nominated alongside Khaligraph. I am not so sure why he thought he would win but that’s a story for another day.

A day after the ceremony, this chap who if you ask me stood the least chance to bag the prestigious award home, took to social media to blast Soundcity and Khaligraph.

Blaqbonez explained that he should have been awarded instead because apparently he’s the best rapper in Africa. He also vowed to release a diss to Papa Jones the following day.

However, Khaligraph outsmarted him and dropped his diss track dubbed Best Rapper In Nigeria¬†so much so that no one even cares about Blaqbonez’ diss which was released a day later.

While I’m happy about the publicity that Khaligraph is getting over the so-called ‘beef’, I’m also perplexed because a 23-year-old who’s not even known in his home country thought he stood a chance against Papa Jones. How?

If you have been a fan of Khaligraph for as long as I have been then I’m sure you know how much work he has put to get where he is at the moment and that means that he deserves every right to enjoy the fruits of his labour.

Blaqbonez has also made some great strides in his career but he should know that for a Kenyan to bag such an award then he must have put in a lot of work because let’s be honest, very people give a hoot about music from our country.

The Nigerian music industry is far much ahead of ours the same way Kenya leads the pack in churning out athletes in the continent.

This means it is probably ten times harder for a Kenyan musician to get noticed than it is for a Nigerian. As such, we need to put some respect on Khaligraph’s name because it didn’t come easy.

Kwesta’s new collabo with Rick Ross ‘I Came I Saw’ is totally fire (Video)

South African rapper and songwriter Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi, better known as Kwesta, has dropped a new track with Rick Ross and it’s getting a lot of love.

The song titled I Came I Saw, which was released exactly a month after Kwesta’s collabo with Rich Homie Quan Run It Up came out, has been getting a lot of airplay.

To the best of my knowledge, this track talks about Kwesta’s upbringing in Katlehong township in South Africa. In as much as it was not a slum, life wasn’t easy, according to the Ngud hitmaker.

The underlying message, at least according to me, is that you can still make it big despite where you come from that’s why he says, “I came I saw I conquered all.”

I really love this jam. Other than Kwesta’s hoarse voice – which I’ve since gotten accustomed to, I couldn’t get enough of the part where he dropped a verse in English. His flow is really dope and I’m not exaggerating.

As expected, Rick Ross also did a good job. His deep baritone gave the jam an edgy feel or so to speak. I’m sure many people won’t forget the part where he says, “I came I saw Kwesta and his grandma in Katlehong.”

The video which was filmed in Kwesta’s hood as anyone can predict, was also on point. Apart from the amazing shots and dope choreography, one thing that struck me about the video was the cameo from Kwesta’s grandmother.

Kwesta has linked up with Rich Homie Quan on ‘Run It Up’ and it’s a massive hit (Video)

Talented South African rapper Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi, popularly known as Kwesta, has released a new jam with Rich Homie Quan and we are really feeling it.

The song title Run It Up is a masterpiece because it offers different styles and elements off rapping, I’m sure you will agree with me on this after listening to it.

Rich Homie Quan dominates the first half of this song with melodic raps and a catchy hook before Kwesta delivers a verse that reps his hood and reminisces of his upbringing.

Maybe it is just me but the fact that Kwesta’s verse was in Zulu really spiced up this jam. It brought a lot of life and is the main reason why I’ve have had this song on replay since I first heard it.

Unlike Kwesta’s previous releases like Ngud, Spirit and Vur Vai, this jam wasn’t influenced by the Kwaito sound but that does not mean that it’s not dope. Actually, this departure is commendable since he nailed it.

I totally love the video concept for Run It Up, it shows them in the hood performing before various backgrounds that include rooftops and an excited audience of ordinary community members.
