2020 has been a tough year for musicians locally, with most artistes struggling to access studios and record new music due to the corona virus pandemic.
A few months ago, the local music scene experienced some music ‘drought’ owing to the challenges experienced due to the pandemic.
While many artistes have been struggling, a number of musicians have managed to remain consistent, and produce great songs that have ended up being hits.
One of such artistes is Khaligraph Jones. He has been consistently dropping new jams and featuring on many others in the past seven months.
This article reviews top collabos from Khaligraph Jones this year:
