anyikowokoI first met Khaligraph probably late 2012 while still hosting Grapevine on KBC. Even though he had no name in the industry and no music video, he would persistently call me every day asking me to interview him because he said: "You will see how dope my rap is." I believed him but my producer wouldn't let me interview anyone without at least 3 music videos out. But Khali cajoled me every day, "You can ask Blaze or come record me at WAPI." I asked, and then took it upon myself to go record his freestyle sessions at WAPI so as to produce more content that would replace his no-videos gap.
The interview was dope | content-wise and we created a buzz. From then I knew he was the future. It's one of those interviews I forced upon with all my might as my producer looked over me like - "Anyiko why don't you give up?" Khali already had mixtapes out then, he brought me at least 3.
Fast forward to yesterday when Khali invited me to his new studio set up and new imprint Blu Ink Corp. As we sat at the lounge discussing the past, present and future - it dawned on us that - that TV interview was the first he ever had! ❤️ Cheers to the OG now looking to sign up new acts and fly beyond boarders 🥂

- tetushanimusicI love these kinds of stories 💜
- al_violinistCheck your boy @captain_charisma_leband
- tightsqueezelimpNo hate but he needs to do a lot we expect moree music not more PR .....
- okothmweusi@tightsqueezelimp no one currently drops hit after hit like Khaligraph,when you get into the business you'll realise that PR is a very important ingredient considering he has a studio now.as an artist,you dont have to release songs every minute to prove your worth.content is more Important.interestingly Papa Jones has both content and consistency.
- tightsqueezelimp@okothmwesi I bet willy Paul management would say the same ...We need more from him standards to keep upto don't be like wyre sign some deals then say u bigshot now.....DTP or defjam wouldn't care much about pr without selling music....tell him after micasa...nuthing much about him.....borrow a leaf from wizkid or diamond.....u have to keep feeding us with your sounds and rhythm not media campaigns.....it's hustle BT MUSIC comes first...
- jontezjibu@anyikowoko If Only Other Presenters were as You! Kenyan Music would be on another level. Most Of Us Artists lack Platform, & it kills the continuity of the art. #WordUpThere👆👆 I Believe!
- davidgitongaThis is so encouraging. We need to tell more stories like these in video. #254videoguy
- anyikowokoThanks @paula__254 @thekyukkoils you are so right! Even me if my former producer didn't give me a chance on KBC I wouldn't be doing what I am doing today. Aww @janrihanchor thanks 😊 I agree with your thoughts @okothmweusi @jontezjibu you have the power to share your music and build your fan base solely via social media. Start today and then when the presenters see you they want to catch up! Indeed @davidgitonga
