Snitch TV Kenya is trying to disrespect the OG, y’all should dedicate a whole show to celebrate this damn victory instead y’all trying to lowkey hate on this Win, iyo ni swali Gani munauliza watu sasa? Mbona Sioni kama Mnauliza if Kipchoge deserved his win pia? We can’t help it, We are just winning cause we are good, Kwendeni Uko mbali pia nyinyi. And point of correction, Its not East Africa, Its Eastern Africa. #mrinternational #respecttheogs
The renown rapper khaligraph jones could not take in the words, as he went ahead to repost on his Instagram handle bashing the station using is favorite tag “Respect the OG,” from his post he was disgusted as to why a Kenyan station could be asking such a question instead of celebrating his win, he wondered why the station couldn’t dedicate a whole show to celebrate the damn victory.
The post ignited a lot online reactions as fans and followers could not hear any of it as popular celebrities
