KENYA: DJ Hypnotiq and Ulopa Ngoma Finally Bring Together Rappers Khaligraph Jones and Lon Jon For the Collabo of the Year in 'Dabo' #HipHopTuesday
19 April 2016
From DJ Nruff, Crème de la Crème and now DJ Hypnotiq, it seems djs in Kenya are now taking the DJ Khaleed route and jumping on music tracks rather than just mixing the tunes. But you can’t complain with the results.
This time DJ Hypnotiq brings together an unlikely trio, Ulopa, Khaligaph Jones and Lon Jon in the song Dabo.
As always Ulopa is the production and hook genius while the two gifted rappers bring out their lyrical prowess in full force on this one.
There’s no doubt this is a dream team collabo and it will definitely be in the running for one of the best collaboration of 2016 come the end of the year.
We reached out to Lon Jon to get his perspective of working with Ulopa and Khaligraph especially seeing as 2016 is shaping up to be his year with three projects out and rocking the airwaves already including his latest Be Alright.
“Working with Ulopa was a real experience. He’s a genius. As for Khaligraph, a lot of people have wanted us to work together, thanks for DJ Hypnotiq for linking us together to make this project happen,” he said.
As to their chemistry while working on this new joint; “We enjoyed ourselves while recording and it came out on the track as well.”
Prior to the release of Dabo, Khaligraph had taken to social media heaping praise on Lon Jon calling him one of 'favorite rappers in Kenya', a big praise coming from him.
