Khaligraph Jones hits out at Eric Omondi, says he should focus on comedy
Popular Rapper Brian Ouko Robert, popularly known as Khaligraph Jones, has weighed in on the current conversation around the music industry in the country. Directly addressing comedian Eric Omondi, who is the initiator of the conversation, Papa Jones, as he refers to himself, advised Eric to focus on matters relating to comedians only.
According to the Champez hitmaker, Eric has no grounds to speak or share his opinion regarding the music industry simply because he is not a musician.
In a press conference, Papa Jones added that Eric should direct his energy towards the comedy industry.
"Huyo jamaa si msanii... Eric Omondi is supposed to address comedians," he said.
Khaligraph added that he would only share his official statement regarding the state of the music industry in the country after Sauti Sol, Nyashinski, or Mejja share theirs.
"Eric Omondi is the b**tcrack of comedy. What he does in the name of entertainment and comedy is shambolic. It is not good marketing either. It is clout chasing deadbeat clowning. That is not art. Our industry is in transition. We just got our groove back after a pandemic," said Bien.
Angered by Eric's utterances, singer Bahati announced that he would edit out a part of his recent music video that captured the comedian.
"In fact, I am going to re-edit my video #Adhiambo. Just remove the part I put to promote your career! Lastly, give me a call I give advice on how to respect women because the clout chasing move you made to the mother of your son Jackie Maribe was so lame; a deadbeat dad has no authority to lecture our music industry," he said.
