K.O goes in on Big Zulu on ‘Omega Freestyle’
On Friday, 19 August 2022, Big Zulu filled a gaping hole in the dying genre when he delivered an industry-wide diss track, which poked fun at Mr Cashtime himself, the likes of Cassper Nyovest, AKA and others.

If fans thought for one second that this was a friendly spar between peers, then a single spin of Omega Freestyle is all it takes to confirm that no love is lost between K.O and Big Zulu at this juncture.
From belittling Zulu’s business acumen to questioning the rapper’s handling of royalties on his hit single Imali Eningi (K.O specifically questions whether Riky Rick’s estate sees any of the song’s royalties), here is the full-length diss track, Omega Freestyle:
