Hot rap career under Kaka Empire

King Kaka’s greatest hits
As with most hip hop lyricists, King Kaka mostly sings about his personal experiences. The topics he covers range from struggles in love, in family, and in society. However, he writes them in a soft tone that can resonate with peoples’ subconscious rather than evoking anger that Western artists are known for.
Among his most successful albums is Tales of Kaka Sungura (2008). It has 17 tracks and he took a year to complete shooting for music videos. This album was one of his strongest projects as it was dedicated to setting the foundation for who he will become as a hip hop musician. Many more tracks followed with one of his greatest hits being Dundaing, a collaboration with Kristoff.
