Khaligraph is still fueling the #PlayKeMusic debate but this video of him singing an explicit song to Betty Kyallo is a shocker.
Rapper Khaligraph Jones has been at the center of controversy this past week with the #PlayKeMusic debate. After declaring to fly out Kenyan presenters to Nigeria to gauge their popularity, he has made headlines again for some lewd lyrics.
Papa Jones is just getting started this 2019 and yesterday he was the topic of discussion after a video of him serenading a blushing Betty Kyalo with crude lyrics from his song “Stick” went viral.
The “Mazishi” rapper dropped one explicit punchline after the other and Betty, a popular news anchor could not help but blush while giggling as the rapper kept going. The vulgar track dubbed “Stick” leaves nothing to the imagination as Khaligraph goes on to describe the various sexual situation that would have anyone red in the face.
On the other hand, Kenyans on social media were shocked and disappointed after watching the video that has since been deleted. This led to a number of personalities to speak out like radio presenter Massawe Japanni who asked her followers how can she announce such a song on air. Japanni went on to express her disappointment with Betty and went on to add insult to injury calling the contents of the video ‘nonsense’.
Celebrity publicist and former TV presenter Anyiko Owoko chimed in saying that the song is a nighttime radio song and that it’s surprising that western pop songs with even more vulgar lyrics get airplay in our radio stations.
Former Capital FM producer Joe Muchiri bashed Massawe by saying Khaligraph has over 200 songs and has been releasing good content but she only chose this song to prove a point that Kenyan music is not good enough. He also went ahead to ask her if she has ever bought an album or how many good songs by Khaligraph she has played on the radio.
As the #PlayKeMusic debate continues to trend online, the public and music industry stakeholders share their opinions as to why the local industry has stagnated over the years.
