Apart from his equally controversial lyrics, rapper Colonel Mustafa is known for his bad boy character. He is a rubble rouser of some sort. Throughout his music career spanning over 10 years, he has been involved in uncountable controversies thanks to his ruffneck-type of personality.
I don’t know how many will believe it, but just have a look:
1. Colonel Mustafa believes that he is the most humble person alive.
“I am very down to earth. Very humble indeed. for example, I can enjoy a meal at a kibanda. I can board a matatu with no fear. I can pee on the roadside if pressed. Isn’t that cool?”
2. He loves food. The rapper says that he could not be the hugest person around, but he is a lover of food. And not just any food, but good food.
3. He had dreadlocks. Not many of us knew that the Loboko hit rapper donned dreadlocks at some point of his adult life. So, why did he shave them?
“Before shaving them, I turned them blonde. The reason why I then put scissors on them is very interesting though. My then girlfriend’s dad never liked them. So, I decided that instead of losing a girlfriend, let me lose my locks. I can always grow them back,” says Mustafa.
From having a nasty break-up with his ex girlfriend and singer Marya to his beef with Coast-based songstress Nyota Ndogo, posing for photos with nude lasses to allegedly featuring a married woman in one of his nasty music videos, Mustafa’s list of misgivings is endless.
