In a recent interview with JoyNews’ Doreen Avio, Ghanaian Reggae & Dance-hall artiste Kahpun says his fellow musicians, Jupiter and Epixode are “sleeping dogs” in the industry. According to him, Jupiter and Epixode have enjoyed their time in the spotlight and are not in the game anymore.
“He is a sleeping dog. Jupiter is gone. His time is past and gone. If he is trying to do something, then it will be for attention. There is a new energy. We have times and seasons and this is the time for Kahpun,” he said.
Touching on Epixode, Kahpun maintained his stance. “Epixode is just like Jupiter. We have times and seasons. They had their time and now it is my time.” He was however optimistic his assertion will not result in a beef. “Jupiter will understand and he knows I am saying the truth,” he said jokingly.
Kahpun has released a couple of controversial hot singles like ‘Money Maker’ featuring Black Prophet, ‘Basara’, ‘Excuse Me Miss’, and ‘Teacher’ which also featured Rudebwoy Ranking.

OH MY GAWD: Mr Eazi, Nicki Minaj And Major Lazor Link Up For An Infectious Afrobeats Song
Major Lazer are ramping up to the release of their fourth LP, Lazerism. Back in May the Diplo-led crew started teasing “Oh My Gawd,” a new collaboration with Afrobeats sensation Mr. Eazi also featuring rap and pop superstar Nicki Minaj and Eazi’s fellow Nigerian K4MO. It was supposed to drop in July, but it’s been delayed a few times, much to Minaj fans’ consternation.
Mr. Eazi begins the infectious song, accompanied by a dancehall-inspired choreography video. Minaj soon swoops in with her thumping verse, proclaiming, “Stranger, looking for some danger / Ride it like a bad gal, face of a angel / This one, yeah, I’m Major, UK out to Asia / Pull out in the Range, got him beepin’ like a pager.”
The Barbz can now relax because the track is finally out. “Oh my gawd, I’ve never seen a bottom like that,” K4MO begins, proceeding to express his admiration and desire for said bottom. Eazi and Nicki both show up to glide over the contagiously rhythmic Afrobeats/dancehall/EDM production. It’s too bad this didn’t drop earlier in the year because it has big summer hit vibes. Given Minaj’s recent return to chart success with her first two #1 hits, maybe it will still make moves on the Hot 100 anyway.
A statement from Eazi:
“This record was really fun to make, and it’s crazy how it went from hearing a K4mo intro in the studio with Fred Again, to me jumping on it and then Diplo hopping in! And Walshy hitting me up to say it’s a banger—next thing Nicki is on it! Been a journey really, like two years in the making and I can’t wait to perform it at my next festival!”
