Rapper Brian Ouko Omollo, known to many as Khaligraph, is the latest public figure to give his opinion on claims that his nemesis Octopizzo bought views for his latest single Oliel.
The song in question was released only 3 days ago but it has already gained 1.6M views on YouTube. What even more shocking is that it garnered 1M views in it’s first 24 hours!
This has led many fans to believe that the Kibera-bred rapper might have bought views for the song which, to be honest, has not received so much traction since he released it.
A good example to compare it with would be “Lamba Lolo” which currently has 1.6M views on the video-sharing platform or Ethic’s latest jam with The Kansoul which has 0.5 views.
Truth is, the two aforementioned songs are more popular than Octopizzo’s Oliel yet he has more views on YouTube.
How? The only explanation would be that maybe, just maybe, Octopizzo’s songs are more popular in the diaspora than in Kenya and even that would be a stretch.
Weighing in on the matter, Khaligraph, who has also been accused of buying YouTube views before said maybe his nemesis did what he had to do.
“You may have a song that has millions of views but there’s no hype on the streets. So you don’t get called to perform for shows. It looks odd. Who’s playing who?” Khaligraph said.
