Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones has been crowned Africa’s Best Hip hop act at Soundcity MVP awards in Lagos, Nigeria.
Khaligraph beat the likes of Falz from Nigeria, South Africa’s Kwesta and Ghana’s Sarkodie among many others to bag the prestigious award at the event that was held on January 11, 2020.
“I represent the 254 Kenya, East Africa. To some people, I know this is your first time seeing me and you are wondering who I am. I am the best rapper in Africa. The East has something to say,” said Jones after the win.
Not everyone was happy with his award.
On Sunday, rapper Blaq Bonez took to social media to belittle Jones, stating that he (Bonez) is the best rapper of all time and Sound City MVP awards got it wrong when they handed the award to Khaligraph.
“Somebody tell Khaligraph that I’m still the best rapper in Africa Sound City got it wrong. Diss track in the morning, you know what I mean!!!” said Blaq Bonez.
He apologized, however, after fans attacked him.
“Lmaoo I’m kidding about a diss track oo. Wtf you people are taking me too seriously. Congrats @Khalipgraph Jones. And I’m sorry.”
“Nigga has apologized. What a shame . I was so excited, now am gonna diss each and every one of you all Nigerian rappers and become the top Nigerian rapper then apply for Citizenship. There cause every doing afro pop now,” reacted Khaligraph.
