“Mimi sina nafasi ya kuitwa mweusi.” Akothee comes out clear over Kenya, and Tanzania beef.

Kenya and Tanzania are blasting one another again. This time it is about which country can rap.

-Khaligraph start the beef?-

The feud started with Kenyan Rapper Khaligraph Jones.

Khaligraph challenged Tanzanian artists to a rap battle. He belittled the artists for not having any worthy rappers in Tanzania.

His diss has received responses across the board. Some Tanzanian rappers responded with diss tracks of their own.

-Who responded to the diss?-

One such artist is Rosa Ree. She dropped a diss track produced by Binladen titled Mama Omollo.

In her diss track she toys with the Kenyan identity claiming Kenyans are of a darker complexion. This line is borrowed from the notion that fair skin is a representation of beauty.

Such a line enlisted comments from Akothee in her video response siding with Tanzania in the rap beef.

Rosa Rae dubbed herself as the mother of rap. Thus the title “Mama Omollo”
