The newest beef in town might be between King Kaka and Sauti Sol. Recently, Kaka was in a radio interview and he said that Sauti Sol have not helped the Kenyan music industry. The rapper, who is also Kaka Empire CEO said this about Sauti Sol, despite the latter being Kenya’s biggest musical export, repping us very well internationally. In fact, they are currently on a tour in Germany, maybe it’s the reason they haven’t responded.
However, it did not end there. Kaka has gone ahead to throw more jabs at Sauti Sol. “But walikuwa wamepost poster yangu juzi, ya song yangu na Fena hiyo ya Run Tin. Nimeenda kwa page yao, wametoa!” said the rapper in a video post on his gram.
He however promised to support them and even vote for them if they were nominated for any award, urging his fans in Germany to attend Sauti Sol’s shows. He then termed their step to pull down his poster from their gram as ‘petty’.
King Kaka’s Kaka Empire is opening a new studio today and the jabs might be a publicity stunt to hype up this step, or maybe the beef might be real.
