Unlike before, it’s becoming harder and harder to hear Kaka Empire in music circles like we used to a few years ago.
Singer Timmy Tdat is barely making it into the charts, Shiko Femione, it seems, is just one hit away from losing relevance while Avril and Arrow Boy are no longer part of the team.
Yes, the Empire is coming down pretty fast and it seems only King Kaka is making noise.
In an interview with Mzazi Willy M Tuva, the popular rapper explained why all over sudden it seems like he’s all alone in his empire.
“Kama tunaweza kukutoa level hii tukupeleke next level hii, na ukipata namana ya kwenda level mpya hiyo ni furaha yetu,” said King Kaka while explaining why Kaka Empire is more of a stepping stone.
“Mi ile siku nitaona ule msanii ashawahi kupita kwa mikono zetu nitafutahi sana. So that’s the motive of Kaka Empire, we give you what we can and we are very happy our artiste ambao tushawahi work na wao and we are wishing them all the best yaaani, we are proud of the steps they are making.”
On why Avril and Arrow Boy left, Kaka said that the two didn’t renew their contracts and, Kaka Empire didn’t fuss in the process, they just accepted and moved on.
“Arrow na Avril wameondoka na unajua kuna mkataba ana hiyo contract iko na timeline,” said King Kaka.
“Ikifika wakati Fulani tunarelease artiste juu saa zingine ni poa artiste pia a grow kivyake ama labda amove kwa new management na huwa tunaencourge hiyo sana, na tunaambianga msanii akipata kwingine ambapo anaona itambenefit zaidi, asiogope kuongea, sababu kazi ya Kaka empire is not to own people , we are here just to help.”
Arrow Boy, who launched his career as a lead vocalist in a group called Qbic way back in 2011, was initially signed by KRG the Don’s label “Fast Cash Music Group” before inking the deal with Kaka Empire in 2017.
He has decided to pursue a solo career while Avril said that she has started her own company called “Link Sasa Universal” with a few friends that will major in music distribution songwriters.
