King Kaka is releasing so many songs but nobody cares

King Kaka

If was asked to name a Kenyan artist who has released the most song, I’d confidently say King Kaka. Well, I could also be wrong.

My point is King Kaka has been putting a lot of effort. It’s almost as if he has a new song every month, sometimes it’s two new songs. And by song I mean a music video.

He really stands out from Kenyan artists who wait for two or three months to release new music.

However, in as much as he is releasing so many songs, including collabos with international artists, very few of them are hits and this begs the question, why?

You see, the Kenyan music culture is terrible and it’s partly to blame. We want to hear one song over and over at the expense of other songs.

This is the reason why most Kenyan artists don’t release albums. Our TV and radio stations usually pick a few songs and have them on heavy rotation for a couple of month until their audiences are fed up.

While they are focusing on one song, other songs by the same artist or different artists don’t get a chance. Put simply, they are starved.

Take for instance Dundaing which was released by King Kaka in October last year. It went on to become one of the biggest songs in 2019.

Interestingly, he has released more than 10 new music videos after the mega hit but no one seems to care. The dismal YouTube views confirms this.

Why? It’s because media houses had Dundaing on heavy rotation or a hit by another artist. It’s just what it is.

Music fans are also to blame because we don’t entirely rely on TV and radio stations because of YouTube and other music platforms.

  1. Why bother doing an album in Kenya if you’re focusing on the mass market?Drop good catchy singles and you will start counting money,if your song is very good,push it regionally in East Africa and if the song really is catchy,you will make more money regionally.Then the rest of Africa may even find your song irresistible then you make even more money.And if you’re not content with just that song being successful in the whole of Africa,you reinvest some of the money and continue producing quality music then you keep making cash in the whole of Africa

  2. King Kaka is to blame for this. Why? Because Kenyan artists have this annoying habit of trying to impress audiences by making wrong moves abroad. Whoever advised King kaka to do a collabo with a ghost artist from abroad who barely appears in his music video should take blame. Again, we have seen other artists too, doing the same mistakes over and over again. Its not a surprise why music careers of kenyan artists is usually shortlived.
