I know you all know about this story but I’ll just tell it my way. At least I’m sure you haven’t heard it from me.
So here we go,
Once upon a time, I remember auditioning for a local radio station on Instagram.
So how this worked is that you were supposed to upload a video using a certain hashtag and the most likes would win.
What would your 19 year old back then do with no significant clout whatsoever?
Mazee I had likea net worth of 1K, 100 MBs and 64 free text messages (due for expiry in 5 hours or less) to my name.
So guess what I did?
I made a “smart decision” and spent 800 to buy likes and 100 for data for looking at my imminent win because well… I’m a cocky human being sometimes, ok?
I think we all know the ending to that story ???
Well, mine was kinda less embarrassing because only me and HBR knew at the time.
For Octombitho and management however… I really wanna say the same but hey,
He’s literally on every blog out there right now.
For the confused Netizen still wondering… why?
I literally have a job because of you.
Now grab your limited popcorn, relax for the next 2-3 minutes.
“This is going to be a short one.”
I could guess a couple of other places I could use this statement lmao.
But first…the story
Octopizzo buying YouTube views?
So for those in the Kenyan music scene you might’ve realized that Octopizzo dropped a new track called “Nikupate”.
It’s a really solid music video that garnered around 925k views at one time.
It’s currently at 463k views.
I might not know alot of stuff about YouTube but I’m pretty sure that the number of views never goes down.
Unless Betty Botter bought some bots ?
A few people actually called him out on the whole incident.
Including your pompous narrator over here
I’ll stick to my lanes and call out the bigboys
Here’s a verse from Khaligraph Jones’ Lwanda Magere Leegacy.
“Rap now is a circus of clowns,
Mumble rapping, lean suckin’ suckers looking way worse than they sound.
Rap niggas carrying purses around.
Ain’t nobody care for skill anymore cause you can purchase a crown.“
Called out, embarrassed, brother had only one option… and even that didn’t work out.
Check out this comment from Khali.
So because all good things come in twos.. *wink*
Another Natalie (not the one we don’t like) came up swinging at the brother.
Heck, she wanted to pay Octo for a collab but after this..
Octopizzo history with lying.
Octopizzo isn’t new to the whole music controversy by the way.
In 2015 he got a bit ballsy and dropped a collab with “August Alsina.”
A move I highly doubt went well for our king of manifestation over here…
But for real though,
I admit that Nikupate has a good music video…
But who still listens to Octopizzo?
Lemme drop this and GO
