In less than a decade, rapper Khaligraph Jones has gone from a struggling rapper to a respected musician not just in Kenya but across the globe.
In his second visit to Nyahururu town over the weekend, Jones reminisced on his disastrous visit to the town in 2012 which saw him sleep in a bus hungry.
“The 1st Time I went To Nyahururu was in 2012, a friend of mine called @romiswahili Had connections with Some Guys who had A gig,” he said on social media.
“I was supposed to be paid 7k but because nobody Knew Who I was, they ended up giving me 4k, which was also supposed to cater for transportation to and Fro. There was no accommodation So I spent the night at the bus station waiting for the 1st bus that was coming to Nairobi.”
Jones, who is now a Soundcity MVP winner and brags of other several top accolades, said that coming back to Nyahururu and watching thousands cheer his name during his performance is a clear sign of his growth over the years.
“10 years later, I am rich now, God is good, yesterday we killed at Nyahururu once more and this time the OG was respected,” his post read.
