The Kenyan entertainment industry is no stranger to drama. In 2023, there have been a number of ugly feuds between celebrities that have played out in public. Here is a timeline of some of the most notable feuds:
Papa Jone And Octopizzo
In an unexpected twist, the Kenyan hip-hop scene witnessed a playful yet intriguing clash as rap heavyweight Khaligraph Jones stirred the pot by humorously suggesting that fellow artist Octopizzo might be better suited for the runway than the recording booth.
During an exclusive interview with Oga Obinna on his widely-followed YouTube show, ‘The OG’ couldn’t help but jest about Octopizzo’s clean and stylish Instagram feed, asserting that the rapper’s fashion-forward posts made him appear more like a “model” than a bona fide rap artist.
Jones, known for his sharp lyrics and dominating presence in the industry, held nothing back as he quipped that Octopizzo should explore his potential as a fashion model rather than focusing on music. With an infectious grin, Khaligraph playfully stated, “You see those photos on Octopizzo’s Instagram? Man, he’s got that model vibe going strong. We should just let him own it!”
While the exchange between the two prominent artists was lighthearted and seemingly in good spirits, it didn’t go unnoticed by their fans and followers. Social media platforms buzzed with reactions, as fans engaged in a friendly debate over whether Octopizzo’s apparent model-like appeal could indeed eclipse his prowess as a rapper.
The underlying camaraderie between Khaligraph Jones and Octopizzo shone through, reminding everyone that the music industry is not only about competition but also about fostering artistic relationships. While Khaligraph Jones might have ignited the feud with his playful remarks, it’s clear that both artists continue to captivate audiences with their respective talents, whether it’s on the mic or in front of the camera.
As fans eagerly await Octopizzo’s response, it remains to be seen if this unexpected banter will lead to more than just a friendly exchange of words. One thing’s for sure, the Kenyan hip-hop scene just got a refreshing dose of entertainment and camaraderie, proving once again that there’s always room for humor and friendly competition in the world of music.
