Hip hop star, Henry Ohanga popularly known as Octopizzo has set a new record by hitting 1 million views within 36 hrs with the song “Sijawai”,a feat never witnessed before by a Kenyan artist within the stipulated time.
Things started looking good as within 8 hours, the views had gone past half a million mark.
Sampled Dancehall Beat
The music producer should be offered a thumbs up for a job well done.
He skillfully sampled a dancehall beat and laid Octopizzo’s bars in it.
The aftermath is perfect as the Namba Nane rapper flows flawlessly.
Sijawai,is a Swahili word translation for “I’ve Never”
Octopizzo uses,Sijawai in a repetitive mode laced with other sheng words such as “Mambleina” meaning haters or simply a snitch.
Throughout the song,he maintains that he’s never given face to what he feels not right.
Octopizzo who’s known for speaking his mind further throws shade at Nigerian music.
According to Octopizzo, listening to Nigerian music is out of bounds.
“Sijawai tambua ngoma za Naija” he raps partly.
The video is also a breath of fresh air with modernity showcased at it’s best.
From the lighting, costumes to the whole arrangement,the video director must have done his homework well.
What of the Caucasian video model’s, the carnivore dance party in pair’s of two, This is a good reminder that the Kenyan rapper is an international superstar huh!

With the success of “Sijawai” we sampled a few of the comments from Octopizzo’s fans below.
“You see the reason Octopizzo is different from other Kenyan artists, it’s because he is unpredictable and always produces unique music videos and spit different barz in every jam he releases,crowns👑👑👑 for that 🔥🔥🔥” shot one fan.
“We can all agree he never disappoints his fans with his consistency “fired a second fan
Octopizzo’s runaway success with,Sijawai comes just days when controversial dancehall star,Krg The Don maintained that the kibera bred rapper no longer commands the respect he had before.
Somebody tell Krg, The last time Octopizzo was stroked by Breeder Lw,we saw the latter disclosing that he was manhandled by Octopizzo’s men.
