Award-winning rapper, Khaligraph Jones, has addressed his alleged beef with fellow rapper Octopizzo.
For a long time, the duo never saw eye to eye. Speaking during an interview with Mpasho.co.ke, the burly rapper said,
“Back in the day if someone would have asked me about this I would have said wakwende. But right now I am the OG and you asking me about him won’t add or take anything away from me. But right now I give him his credit, he is a good rapper he came before me.”
Khaligraph says he is no longer a young man to get upset over petty things I give him his respect other than that there is nothing.
“If I bump into him I would say high, if he doesn’t want to then he can go elsewhere.”
Asked what advice he would give upcoming artists, especially those doing Gengetone, the father of two responded,
“I tell people to step back regroup and re-strategize and we all go through problems. I also go through problems, things I do not talk about. Blaming people won’t solve your problems. No one owes you anything in this industry.”
Asked if he mentors young people, he said,
“Some people are shining right now. It all comes down to discipline. If you don’t have discipline you cannot go anywhere.”
Khaligraph says when the time comes and his kids want to pursue music or be in the limelight he will respect their decision.
The musician also spoke about keeping his kids away from social media, saying he has never been for the idea of starting Instagram pages for his son and daughter.
He wants them to start their own pages when they are of age.
