Kahli Abdu – Ministry Of Corruption | Download + Review


If you haven’t heard of Kahli Abdu then you must’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of years. Kahli Abdu is one of the finest MCs in Naija, and is a real representer of J-Town, the unofficial home of Hip-Hop in Nigeria.

He is one of the few MCs left that still have major messages behind their bars. Real hip-hop if you will, and he shows this on his Ministry Of Corruption Mixtape, which is a somewhat politically driven mixtape with samples from the legend, Fela.

The intro of the mixtape, Presidential Address sets off the mixtape with an address that gets ur ears tuned and awakens ur senses to listen to some deep politically driven bars.

Kahli drives messages home while getting solid beats and samples from some of Fela’s masterpieces.

Tracks like Demo Crazy a sample from Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense, addresses the state of our anemic Democracy which is marred by electoral fraud and violence. Another sample of Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense, is Miseducation which highlights the “miseducation” of our young peoples, and our education system or lack there of along with other issues that continually plague our african society.

My personal favorite is the first track after the intro, VIP. Call it a complete package song that tells you, Kahli is “not playing with his music.” Contains samples from Fela’s “International Thief Thief (ITT)”, and drives home the message.

Other tracks to look out for VIP, Categori, Kpako, and actually the whole mixtape really. The package contains snippets of speeches from interviews with Fela including a significant portion from the documentary “Music Is The Weapon.”

Guest appearances, Endia, Yung El, J-Milla (all from the GRIP Boiz), Bezalel, Guru, Eve Urrah, Geniuz and Chopsticks.

Overall it’s a very solid effort from Kahli Abdu, and if you’re into music as a weapon, music with a message, real hip-hop that stays significant indefinitely, then this a definite must-listen.

Grade: 8.5/10

    Haven't listened to the mixtape. Browsing on my phone. Hate doing these things on my phone. The write-up, however, makes me all giddy and and anxious to listen. Will comment again once I do.
