Octopizzo has a makeover and Kenyans are lost for words [PHOTOS]


He is one of the most talked about artistes in the country right now, perhaps because of his interesting background. You’ll agree with me that it’s not everyday that a guy from Kibera rises to become one of the hottest emcees in the game.

Thanks to consistency, Octopizzo, whose name is a clever reference to his hood (mathree route) “eight” aka namba nane, made association with Kibera (Africa’s biggest slum – ok, maybe second after SA’s Soweto) cool, during a time when the place was feared for its high crime rate and other rots.
