Why Avril ditched King Kaka’s Kaka Empire

Singer Avril is no longer part of the shrinking King Kaka Empire. There’s was time when Kaka Empire ruled the airwaves but now it seems like only King Kaka is doing big things from the stable. All the rest have gone silent.

Avril, who was also a member, recently opened up on why she had to ditch the label saying that she wanted to start her own thing after her contract expired.

New thing

“I was signed in for a management contract. but yes I am no longer with Kaka Empire. I left because I needed a different chapter,” says Avril.

She added: “Right now I have my own thing ‘Link Sasa Universal’ with some friends. Its all about music distribution and songwriters.”

Kaka Empire other artists such as Timmy Tdat, Shiko Femione and Tokodi. Not much about the other artists in the label is going around lately though King Kaka has maintained his momentum especially after launching his new album.
