Kenyan musician Octopizzo says he will only work with his rap nemesis, Khaligraph Jones, if their collabo brings him money.
Speaking to Mambo Mseto host Willy Tuva on Tuesday, Octopizzo said: “I am ready to work with any artiste so long as I am making money from such arrangements.”
“I won’t work with an artiste for the sake of it, for the sake of hype, for the sake of giving in to pressure from certain quarters. I would work with a musician because I am passionate of the project we’re pursuing. [I am ready to work] with Khaligraph Jones so long as our partnership will bring me money and increase my fanbase; that is what matters most to me,” said Octopizzo.
Asked whether he enjoys a good relationship with Khaligraph Jones, Octopizzo said: “yes, but they don’t communicate regularly”.
“The last time I spoke to Khaligraph Jones was two years ago. I, however, regularly keep in touch with King Kaka and Sauti Sol’s Polycarp because they are real people. During our conversations, rarely do we speak about music. Most of the time, our chats revolve around the state of Kenya, family – our spouses and children,” said Octopizzo.
During the interview, Octopizzo declined to comment on a January 2019 rumour, which suggested he killed university student, Kenneth Abom, by hitting him on the head.
