How Khaligraph Was Forced To Sleep At Bus Station After Promoter Failed To Pay For Accommodation

Rapper Khaligraph Jones has painfully revealed how he was mistreated during his first show in Nyahururu, Laikipia County when he was starting his music career.

Khaligraph says he was forced to sleep at a bust stop after his promoter failed to pay for his accommodation.

According to Khaligraph, the promoter further failed to pay him his full due of Ksh. 7,000 arguing that he was not popular yet.

“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, 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,” Khaligraph said.

“There was no accommodation so I spent the night at the bus Station waiting for the 1st bus that was coming to Nairobi.”

Ten years later, the rapper held a show stopping show in Nakuru, further revealing how grateful God has been to him.

“10 years later, I am rich now, God is good, yesterday we killed a show in Nyahururu once more and this time the OG was respected,” Khaligraph added.

Khaligraph started his music career in 2004 when he was still a small child. He started off by rapping gospel music with musician Hopekid.

“Hopekid and I had formed a group in Kayole because we were in the same school. We didn’t have a name for the group, we all had our own individual names,” he said.
