When he isn’t saving the day as a suit and tie lawyer during the day, Mike Wachira will normally be on your radio airwaves every weekday from 4pm to 7pm on the Ignition show alongside his co hosts Kerry Martin and Sheila Kwamboka. Yes. That’s everyday… every weekday…. save for Friday.
You see on Friday, much like how Clark Kent transforms into Superman,
or Bruce Wayne into Batman,
Mike Wachira transforms into *drum rolls go here* the incredible King Slayer!!
No of course we don’t have footage of the actual transformation happening but we do have evidence of his lyrical conquests in the form of battles he has had with some of Kenya’s most renown rappers including the recently named Jump Off Freshmen.
We all love a good epic rap battle and while I still don’t know how King Slayer remains yet to be defeated, here are a few of his battles and our favorite bars from them.
King Slayer VS Timmy Blanco
“Niliskia song ya Steph featuring Blanco Timmy | I must confess hadi wa leo sijui uliimba nini | Unasema ulifeature,… ukweli ni ulifichwa…”
King Slayer VS Barack Jakuzi
“…sielewi vitu unasema | Nimekukimbiza sana ndi maana unahema? | Umetuacha tukisinzia na hii ghasia unatimbia | Sasa badilisha jina, tukuite minus one | Ama tukuite Baba zero, tukuache minus none”
King Slayer VS Khaligraph Jones
Just about every line was epic so here’s part one and two.
The first season of Ignition HBR’s Epic Rap Battle ends this Friday with the most epic finale yet which might feature Nyashinski, Octopizzo, Petra or Xtatic something YOU can vote for here.
