Speaking on Kiss FM with Shaffie and Adele, King Kaka told Kenyans that the rapper couldn’t make it for the shoot because he was morning.

Cassidy was in ATLANTA for a gig and he said he could not miss it So I had to fly to Atlanta to SHOOT IT. he did not show up after numerous calls but he FINALLY RESPONDED WITH AN EXPLANATION saying he lost a friend who was shot the night before IN ATLANTA and SO he was mourning at that time,” said King Kaka.
King Kaka also said that Kenyans reacted negatively after noticing Cassidy wasn’t in the video.

“When the video came out, KOT did not see Cassidy in the video and SO THEY started saying it WAS a HOAX. to make matters worse, they also realized he had not pushed for the song on social media. KOT were so quick to jump on negativity, but on Monday he posted it.”

King Kaka and Romain have released a song together which is in King Kaka’s new album. The two are hoping they’ll shoot the video before Romain departs.
Rapper King Kaka was recently in New York for the the Annual Goalkeeper Conference which saw him meet with billionaire Bill Gates and his wife.
The rapper, who has an album coming out this week, also met with comedian Tracy Mogan. Tracy temporary gave King Kaka his chains during an interview on radio.
According to King Kaka, he didn’t bring back the chains because Morgan promised a set of others for him.
“No. Watu wa Eastlando Walininyonga. (Laughs). But he’s making customised ones for me. We have plans aligned for next year for both our brands. I am looking forward to it,” he said in an interview with Nation.
King Kaka also narrated how the two met and ended up on Hot 97, one of the hottest radio station in the US.
“I actually reached out to him through a mutual friend. I had recorded the song prior to that, and he loved it when I sent it to him. He recorded his part soon after, sent it to me, and we were able to mix it. We recorded the music video while I was in New York. I’ll release it as soon as “Dundaing” stops Sumbuaing. (Laughs). The mutual friend is Jorma Taccone, my friend of eight years whom we recorded a song with a while back. Jorma introduced me to Paul Rosenberg, who asked if I wanted to do an interview on radio. Little did I know it was to be on Hot 97,” he said.

Kenyans were recently buzzing with excitement after Ayub Ogada and his one-time bandmate James Mbarack Ochieng were featured in Kanye West’s eighth album titled Ye.
Ayub Ogada and Mbarack Ochieng have been credited in the song Yikes in which West opens up on being bipolar. West also opens up about being bipolar through his album’s cover art, which features a mountain range with a highlighter green caption, reading: “I hate being bi-polar. It’s awesome.”
Lost in his work
What has left many surprised is that Ayub, in an interview with Daily Nation, shared that he was not even aware that he had been featured in the album.
“I’ve done so many projects. I cannot remember everything,” Ayub said on phone from his home in Nyahera, Kisumu County. “I cannot remember at what moment in time I did that job.People use my music to do their own projects.”
He went on to add that he just receives calls from people who want to work with him or wants a composition for their beats.
“They always call me. I never call them. They call me, and then I do the necessary job,” he said.
Ayub Ogada, 62, collaborated with King Kaka for “Koth Biro” early last year in a song which targeted corrupt leaders.

His wife, Nana Owiti, took to Instagram to make his day, sharing a lovely message that has left social media in awe.

King Kaka’s wife found herself in some rather unexpected grounds after just another normal day of feeding her months old baby.
Nana Owiti shared a photo on Instagram breastfeeding her baby and some fans were not happy. One even slid in her DM asking her to pull down the post saying it’s offensive.
Message on Instagram
“Someone slid in my DM to ask me to pull down a pic of me nursing my baby, Now,
Here I am Creating the world I want to live in,that’s why I realized I need to nurse anywhere unapologetically. If they don’t see it happening,it won’t be normalized..I won’t be shamed for flipping my breast out so I can feed my hungry, little @PrinceIroma..Oh! That feeling of fulfillment as my breast nourishes my baby and my love nourishes his litu soul. How awesome is God? That a baby, can survive solely on this Liquid gold for 6Months or more and gain so much weight. My baby is 8.2kgs today” shared Nana Owiti
Rapper King Kaka and his wife Nana are expecting their second child as revealed by the lady through her social media pages where she shared a never seen before photo flaunting her grown baby bump.
The couple who already have a 2 year old baby girl seem to be expanding their family as they now await to welcome their new bundle of joy anytime soon.
Nana who shared the photo on her Instagram page looks like she is in her 3rd trimester and might be looking forward to giving birth anytime from now. They have however not revealed the baby’s gender but I am pretty sure King Kaka is hoping for a baby boy as he already has two daughters.
This will be his 3rd child after welcoming two baby girls two years ago with both Nana and singer Sage Chemutai.
Anyway below is a photo of the rapper with his pregnant wife.
