Khalighraph divides opinion with Nipsey Hussle tribute

Controversial Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones has divided online opinion with his tribute to slain American rapper and song writer Nipsey Hussle.

This after Khaligraph on Saturday uploaded a video of himself on Twitter freestyling a tribute to Nipsey Hussle, who was shot dead outside his clothing shop last week.

The harshest criticism came from those who questioned why the celebrated Kenyan rapper was paying tribute to an American rapper.

They even singled out a Kenyan rapper Kantai who passed on in February at St Francis Hospital in Kasarani after suffering from acute peptic ulcers.

But an unfazed Khaligraph came out guns blazing to explain himself and to tell off his the haters.

“Those asking About Kantai, I Did Contributions in ways which some will never understand, Plus it’s 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, OG ni OG,” he tweeted.

Then there were Khaligraph’s fans who similarly sought to put the records straight on the matter.
