Apparently, King Kaka, who was once a student of Chiwawa, has now become the teacher.
This is according to the legendary rapper, real name Ken Gaciengo Mwai, who King Kaka looked up to and drew inspiration from back in the day.
Chiwawa made the revelation in a tribute video that was broadcast during King Kaka’s ‘Estlando Royalty’ album launch on Friday last week and has since been uploaded on YouTube.
In the video clip, Chiwawa narrates how he first met King Kaka in 2007 before he became their studio errand boy.
“The first time I met him… he was just a skinny boy who looked hungry. He was calm and he knew how to engage people in a conversation. He used to tell me he was my fan, and we hit it off well since that first day,” recalled Chiwawa.
The ‘Dundaing’ hitmaker then became involved in Chiwawa’s projects and they would often go to concerts together where King Kaka was always the back-up act or hype man.
“I think running around with him made him understand the game, its structures, who to deal with and how to sign contracts,” said Chiwawa.
“The first time I heard Rabbit rap was when we were in Kisumu at a friend’s house and he asked if I wanted to hear him rap. After he did, I told him he no longer had to be a hypeman… that he needed his own shows.”
Chiwawa confessed that tables have since turned and he is now the one who draws inspiration from his former student.
