Khaligraph Jones known to many as Papa Jones,has penned a letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta, on behalf of the Creative Industry of Kenya requesting him to reopen bars and clubs.
In the letter,Khaligraph explained that creatives were having a hard time during this hard Corona time without a source of income. Khaligraph also argued that most of their hit songs were being wasted since they have no one to perform to;
“@ukenyatta Kindly on behalf of the Creative Industry of Kenya we are Requesting that you allow us to get back to work, allow for the reopening of Clubs and Restaurants, Measures and precautions shall be Taken to ensure Covid 19 doesn't further spread,”
The ‘Tuma Kitu’ hitmaker went ahead and added;
“The youth are suffering from Depression in Silence, Kindly look into this Matter, also Some of our Hits songs are Going To waste, People want to see @femi_one and @mejjagenge perform Utawezana. Rada Chafu sana, #respecttheogs”
In another post, Khaligraph reached out to ODM party leader Raila Odinga's son, Raila Junior, and asked him to speak to his father on behalf of the youths;
“@railajunior1 Gathee Ebu Bonga Na Mzae wako Mr. Agwambo Raila Amolo Odinga, Mwambie Aongee na Uhuru Kenyatta watufugulie Country Turudi Kazi, Rada chafu sana, Watu wanaumia #lwandamagerelegacy #respecttheogs”
