Haters can’t hold me back – rapper Khaligraph

He is not just an ordinary rapper.  He has flair, flow and he got swag in a manner that hasn’t been seen before.  Ladies love him, hip hop heads love him too and he definitely deserves it. Khaligraph is the newest hip-hop sensation. His style is distinct fusing other genres with hip hop to great effect and most importantly, he’s the master of his own creation.


Though he is humble and a laid back in person, he is merciless on the microphone. He is known for his signature line: ‘I’m Khaligraph and I kill the beat, that’s what I do.’ He rarely disappoints. But it has been a long and hard road to success.


He started rapping in high school back in 2008. His first performance was at the WAPI festival that same year.

“Despite being a high school student back n 2008, I still ensured that I attended every monthly hip hop event. I can’t say the journey has been easy cause I faced lot of challenges and hardships coming up as a solo artist but regardless, I kept moving, I can say that all my past experiences have made me the ‘Respected artist’ that I am today,” says Khaligraph.


He is planning a country-wide visit of campuses and colleges, where he has a huge fan base among students. He definitely has big things coming for the ever energetic campus comrades

About his beef with rapper Octopizzo, he has nothing much to say. He insists that just like the famous rapper Rick Ross, ‘These haters can’t hold me back!” Khaligraph had a publicized feud with Octopizzo. He claimed that Octopizzo creates fake Facebook accounts aimed at insulting him and coming up with false allegations against him just to prevent him from taking over the hip hop scene.

He would love to work with international artistes in future especially Rick Ross. His sound has the American touch on it. Most people feel that he was bred in USA but he’s all Kenyan.

“About the American sound, I get that a lot but am Kenyan born and Kenyan raised, so am 100 percent Kenyan. I guess that it’s the way I pronounce some words at times that lead people to say that. I’ve never been in the USA.  Maybe it’s just the influence and furthermore my Swahili is also twice as good,” explains Khaligraph.


On matters of sexuality, he urges the youth to practice safe sex if they can’t abstain. He claims he’s dating his music, but he definitely loves the ladies. However, the ladies love him even more.  He is cautious and would never let success and fame get in the way of his personality.

The African music scene is gaining a sophisticated approach aimed at covering the worldwide scope.  Khaligraph is glad to be in line with the uptown trend. He appreciates the wide support he has received. He also gives credit to his management, his fans and all artistes that he has worked with. They have all been instrumental in making The Khaligraph brand grow.

“Just watch the space, am doing what has never been done before in Kenya and nothing can hold me back.”

    Khaligraph should keep up the good work. Kenya needs rappers with creativity and class like him.
