Khaligraph on showing off his wealth: I don’t flex with cars, I am into car business

Khaligraph Jones, also known as “Kwame,” has a different approach to artist collaborations.

While many artists charge for collaborations, Jones values the connection and mutual respect between himself and others.

“I don’t charge for collaborations , all the artists I have collaborated with can attest to this,” Jones said, “For me, it is all about how we vibe and the mutual respect we share.”

Jones believes he is in a better place financially and does not see the need to charge for collaborations, especially with up-and-coming artists who are still trying to establish themselves.

“God has blessed me, I wouldn’t say extort but getting money especially from up and coming artistes who are trying to build themselves as well, doesn’t sit well with me because I also started from humble beginnings.”

Jones is vocal about his investment advice on social media, encouraging fellow artists to invest their earnings rather than spend them on displays of wealth.

He claims to have moved away from his previous habit of owning many cars, saying, “All I do now is set things up and wait to rip.”

However, some critics have pointed out that Jones still has an appetite for big wheels, which he explains are sometimes part of his car business.

“If you asked me five years ago how many cars I got, I would have told you eight or ten but I am no longer on that wavelength. And yes its true I love cars but people should also know I am into the car business so sometimes the cars I am seen flaunting are meant for business,” he said.

Recently, Jones signed a lucrative deal as the brand ambassador for 22Bet. Despite his success, he remains focused on respecting his fellow artists and building wealth for the future.
