Fast rising Hip hop artist Holy Ten has issued an apology for a diss track he made on Kikky Badass two years ago.

When Holy Ten dropped the diss track Back to Back, the queen of hip hop Kikky Badass released a reply diss. Its great to see the former burying the hatchet through an apology. #fortheculture.
I would like to take this opportunity to unreservedly apologize to my sister Kikky Badass and all those who were affected by my diss track Back 2 Back. A track I released two years ago.
It is with a bowed head that I come before the public and Kikky to ask for forgiveness for what I said in that track. Though I had already taken a decision to pull it down already, the damage had already been done and other people had already downloaded it.
The 18 year old Holy Ten had a very myopic view of society and very idealistic conception of the rap game.
I didn’t fully comprehend the impact such songs can have towards spreading hatred and demeaning my fellow sisters. It is from this position of my little influence that I am in currently that I now fully grasp the consequences of my actions.
The wise have a saying, think twice before you say what ever you say for words can not be swallowed. Though I was an angry teen then when I penned that song it doesn’t erase the fact that it came from Holy Ten and I take full responsibility for my actions.
I promise to desist from making any diss tracks in the future because, of the impact and influence music has. I also would like to make this plea across the Zim music industry that we desist from such practices, already our society is divided on political, religious and other lines. Can music be that one sector that pulls people together as it has done in so many countries?
Once again I apologise
Signed Holy Ten.
