Henry Ohanga aka Octopizzo recently released a stellar project, Jungle Fever, curtain-raising it in a palatable fashion, setting up a billboard. During an Instagram Live session, the rapper took time to explain to fans the concept, process and nitty gritty on the project. A fan asked about the Grammy’s snub and this was the perfect opportunity for the Namba Nane rapper to gloat.
“It was cool to be snubbed. I didn’t feel bad. For me, the notoriety at such a level is a win. The fact that they know a boy from Katwekera even exists is a win. It was me, Nicki Minaj, and The Weekend who were left out among many other greats. So it’s cool,” he said.
According to the Lela artist, he has the best album to come out of Africa this year, and will not be releasing another project for at least another two years.
