Music Career

His is a journey worth watching from the time of Kaka Sungura to King Kaka’s time because for sure he is a king. He recorded and released his first album ” Tales of kakasungura”which featured hit singles ‘Niko kwa jam Nakam’ and ‘Dodoma’ ft Harry Kimani.

watch the video below.

He has really done well since then and has released a lot of jams and done a lot collabos. East Africa and the world generally has accepted his work.  Recently he released an album Eastlando Royalty which has seeing him make flights outside Africa. He is really doing good in marketing his songs and I believe this is what keeps him standing.  Some of the songs in the Eastlando royalty Album include, Njia, Poison, dudaing’. The latter has really done well and it is played everywhere in this Country. honestly the first time I heard the song “dudaing'” I felt like king Kaka had really lost it but the masses proved me wrong. This was a collabo with Kristoff & Magix Enga. The song was done in the language of Sheng’ which is commonly used in Nairobi Eastlands.

Below is a link to the song.

King Kaka has gone to attract a large crowd of followers. He has recently done a collabo with Bridget Blue dubbed “Njia” and his recent single “Poison”. Kaka is something to watch because am sure he is not stopping anytime soon.

watch his recent song on the link below.

Kenyan artist will only get to his level when they produce good content and go an extra mile to market it.


Apart from being a musician, Kaka has also ventured in the world of business. In 2012 he launched his first cloth line. In early 2015 he also launched his purified water company known as Kaka Empire’s Majik Water. He has also been seen in campaigns where he has been supporting girl children in getting sanitary towels to keep them in school. Isn’t this good? King Kaka’s and Nana’s daughter is now the brand ambassador for Marini Naturals baby hair products.

King Kaka is a perfect example that Kenyan music can do. Look at the energy he puts in his work. His style of music is great and is influenced by poetry . His lyrics mostly influenced by the current challenges facing the young generation. He remains to be a great rapper. This guy puts the actual feelings in his words giving it that closeness.

The King Kaka Empire under him recently signed in a new artist Bridget Blue and later she did a collabo with King Kaka for the song dubbed “Njia”. A very emotional song.
