King Kaka

King Kaka was born Kennedy Ombima , as the last of three boys to Mr. and Mrs Ombima. He attended St. Johns Primary School for his primary school education and later on graduated to Eastleigh High School, where he was selected as the senior entertainment prefect. During his tenure as the entertainment captain, King Kaka initiated major talent competitions and initiatives, amongst students at Eastleigh High School as well as other neighboring secondary schools.

After completing high school in 2005, King Kaka’s passion towards music caught the attention of the then high profile music producer DJ Loop who later signed him to his recording company Sneed Music, for a two year contract. It is during this period that King Kaka’s artistry developed, working alongside established acts at the time such as Afro-R&B singers Harry Kimani and Anto Neo soul, as well as fellow rappers like Abbas and Chiwawa among others.

In 2008 King Kaka recorded and released his debut album 'Tales of Kaka Sungura' which featured hit singles like 'Niko kwa jam Nakam' and 'Dodoma' ft Harry Kimani.
