No one owes you anything – Khaligraph to Gengetone artistes

Rapper Khaligraph Jones has advised Gengetone artistes to plan their careers rather than blaming the industry.

Speaking to Classic105 online, on Saturday, the OG encouraged them to put discipline in their work so people can embrace their music.

“I tell artistes to step back and re-strategise because we all have problems, just that there are things I don’t talk about,” he said.

“Sit down and come up with a new plan and stop blaming people for your problems. You will not make any progress. No one owes you anything in the industry.”

Khaligraph’s response comes a few days after former Sailors Gang’s Qoco Juma said Kenyans underrated their music genre.

“People have been saying Gengetone music is dead. What I can say is that the people saying that are the same people fighting against our success,” he said.

Khaligraph also said the reason he did his dedication song to his mum was that he can handle the negativity.

“If I did ‘Maombi ya Mama’ song before I became rich, Kenyans would have trolled me,” he said. 

“I am now successful and at a point where I can handle the trolls and the hate. My story is relatable to many people and the problems I experienced back in the days and now becoming successful.”

Few years ago, when releasing his album ‘Testimony 1990’ he divulged how close he is to his mother in a video he shared of her praying with him towards the success of the album.

In a previous interview with Word Is, the OG opened up on how he ventured into the Gospel scene before fully discovering his talent.

“I recorded my first song and it was a Gospel one in class 7. It was even played on the radio. It reached a point when I realized that I am an OG,” he said.
