360nobs is proud to introduce Nigerian Afro-Beat/Hip-Hop Artist Kahli Abdu.
In 2005, Jos native Kahli Abdu had two choices – stay at home and continue his steady rise in the local hip-hop scene with his close friends Jesse Jagz and MI, or move to the US with his mother and siblings, his mother having just accepted a promotion with the Voice of America. So Kahli chose to stay with his family, moving to a suburb of Washington DC, where the grind of working a 9-5 while trying to make a name for himself in the US music industry could only be consoled by the ultimate prize – a US Green card, which Kahli did eventually earn.
Kahli is currently back in Nigeria working on his debut album, and spending a lot of time with his old friends who are doing very well for themselves. He also plans to release his Fela inspired mixtape, “Ministry of Corruption” (M.O.C) pretty soon. In M.O.C, Kahli pays tribute to Fela Kuti‘s life and music. In the mixtape, every song will sample the late afro-beat legend.
Peep one of the songs off M.O.C called “Kpako” and it features Yung El of GRIP Boiz
