Khaligraph Jones has referred to Octopizzo as young talented guy. The two have been beefing for over a decade and their rivalry had escalated since the start of 2018. However, the older rapper seems to be fed up of the drama.

The long lasting beef between Kenyan rappers Khaligraph Jones and Octopizzo seems to be coming to an end. For over a decade, the two rappers have been throwing rap jabs at each other in interviews, on social media and even in their songs. Just a few days ago, Octopizzo said he did not understand Kaligraph Jones’ and that the rapper should stop bleaching.


The ‘Khali Cartel’ rapper, Khaligraph Jones, seems to be fed up of the drama and he has declined to retaliate to Octopizo’s statements. He, in fact, had only good things to talk about his nemesis while on an interview with KISS 100 FM. Khaligraph had this to say;

“I’m always trying to refrain from such, reason being I’m trying to focus on more constructive things. Octo (Octopizzo) is as young talented guy. On some real though, he is young talented doing this thing, and I have seen this guy from way back where he had nothing. Just seeing him right now I feel happy for him, because we both have the same kind of background. I’m from Kayole and he is from Kibera, and so I let the young brother do his thing. I have nothing bad to say about him. Yes we had issues back then, but I’m about to clock 28, so I ain’t got time for that right now.”

As Ugandan rappers escalate beef amongst themselves, their Kenyan colleagues are squashing it all. Is it a case of wrong timing? Different interests? We shall see.
