This isn’t Styles P’s first display of affection for Kenya.

In 2020, the celebrated rapper expressed admiration for Kenyan musicians, notably giving a shoutout to Khaligraph Jones, lauding him as the best rapper in Kenya, and predicting his imminent rise to international acclaim.

As news of Styles P’s acknowledgment spread, Khaligraph Jones took to social media to express his gratitude, writing:

“The legendary Styles P from The Lox approves. This made me very happy, 254 hip hop to the world, #khalicartel3, he og shall be respected.”

Styles P joins the list of international artists who have graced Kenya with their presence in 2024.

In January 2024, American musician Kelis embarked on a tourism tour across Africa, making a stop in Kenya following her visit to Zanzibar.

Kelis, known for her vibrant personality and hit single “Milkshake,” was recently spotted navigating Nairobi’s Central Business District, particularly the infamous traffic, as seen in a video shared online a few days ago.

The video captured the artist carrying ‘Uhuru’ bags filled with shopping, playfully psyching herself up to navigate the bustling streets.

Amid beeping horns and crowded streets, Kelis shared a moment of humor as she mentioned, “Pedestrians don’t have the right of way.”

She then demonstrated her agility by running across the road, likening the experience to playing ‘Double Dutch,’ a game involving two jump ropes turning in opposite directions.

“Guess where I’m at now!?!? Pro tip! Pedestrians do not have the right of way, you better move fast and look both ways,” Kelis captioned her video.
