Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones is in trouble with his Kenyan fans.

So recently the rap game lost a true gem, Nipsey Hussle and the O.G paid homage, a move that didn’t please fans.


Khaligraph released a tribute track and shared it on Instagram to mourn the late US rapper.

Khaligraph’s tribute verse was revealing and touching as it highlighted the late’s character and philanthropic acts.

The tribute track to Nipsey caught the attention of KOT who slammed him, with many saying he should have done the same for the late Kantai.

Kenyans on Twitter did not hold back when it came to criticizing the rapper’s choice to pay tribute to the international artist, claiming he did nothing for local greats such as Kantai and Sagini who he worked with.

Khaligraph clapped back saying:

SOME WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND.  ITS ALSO NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY, WE HAVE MANY TALENTED RAPPERS IN KENYA WHO WERE ALSO INFLUENCED BY KANTAI, HE WAS A KENYAN RAPPER NOT A KHALIGRAPH RAPPER, EVERYONE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY.

Do you agree with KOT?

‘I feel so bad that I didn’t reach out to Kantai last I was in Kenya’ STL expresses regret
When Kantai passed on, Khaligraph was vocal on the fact that he lost a brother in the music game after trying to bring him back to the music scene.
So let us cut Khaligaph Jones some slack.
