Kenyan hip hop artist, Khaligraph Jones is finally speaking about his recent US trip.
Speaking to Kamene and Jalang’o on KISS FM, Khaligraph revealed that his trip wasn’t what he expected it to be.
Khaligraph has revealed that when he landed in the US, he faced discrimination from the immigration offices.
According to the hip hop artist, Khaligraph was discriminated against because of how he looks.
