Octopizzo’s ‘Kanye’ hits 1M views on YouTube, but Larry Madowo is more focused on his ‘pineapple’ hairstyle

Octopizzo is a rap king in his own right, and all should recognize Octopizzo Namba Nane.

The Kibera-born and breed rapper dropped a new release ‘Kanye’ on August 8th and less than a month later the track hit 1 million views on YouTube. As earlier reported on The Sauce, in classic Namba Nane style, Octo is quick with the wordplay and satisfies fans with the intricate beat that combines percussion and piano strokes, to make for an all-round entertaining musical arrangement on the killer release. Octopizzo keeps his hook and chorus catchy and simple making it an instant chart-topper. Clearly, the rapper has cracked the code for a winning release and is more than proud of his most recent achievement.

But Octo has also stirred up conversations for his most recent fashion choices. On a recent television interview on Ten over Ten, Namba nane gave his two cents on the ongoing debate amongst local musicians protesting poor payments from the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK). In his comment on the ongoing discussion, he said, ” I called the CEO, Madam Milka…huyo ndiyo the new CEO hapo MCSK. Nilimwambia manze kunadoo hapa, kuna watu wananicall hapa hivyo wananiambia nimake comment…kunadoo ingine inatiwa General Distribution, yenye inamaanisha kama wewe ni member….unapewa.” He went on to point out that the current debates are ongoing because the MCSK is not providing local musicians enough information on what these controversial Ksh.2530 payments were for. Though well-informed, Octopizzo’s hairstyle on the nationally televised show stirred up a discussion about his questionable fashion choices online.

Former Trend show host Larry Madowo, took to the Twittersphere to poke fun at the fashion-forward act.

But it seems that Octo was not having any of it clapping back, with the support of his loyal fans.

 

The ‘Noma Ni’ rapper also revealed on the show that he is set to drop a Kenyan-made fashion line. The drip god went on point out that the capsule collection will be coming out in October, as a limited edition Seasaw Seson 1. He said, “Hii ni made in Kenya, boy yangu flani hapo Jericho… kila kitu hapa ni made in Kenya. Hii sio ya kucome, hii sio za Luthuli, hii za duka…hii ni mali safi, tutakuwa tunachukua order only 888 pieces …tunageuza drip hatuwezi tunakaa kama tunafanana.”

Aside from dropping gems of wisdom, the lyricist also went on to share his opinion on Willy Paul’s recent antics. Octo said, “Willy Paul anapima watu wazimu, but kitu mimi natakumwambia…as much as unado hii utoto, kuna watu walikuwa wanalook up to you…asijaribu ku-ingore hao wasee atakama ni watu wawili…walikuwa wanaamini hizo vitaalikuwa anasema about church..kuna wasee amelostisha…halafu anafikiria secular ni easy. Huku hakuna sadaka, na hakuna huruma.”

The Penn State graduate also went on to note that Willy Paul’s music is more about going viral and less about the craft and message, which makes for empty music. Octo concluded his message saying, “Nimerealize wasee wako so into trending instead of kudo tu music poa. Ngoma ngapi hazitrend hapa hivi nazinakuwa global hit? …kutrend watu hulipia, its not about that, do music yenye unapenda, ikitrend isitrend ukosawa.”
