‘King Kaka The Kenyan Story’
Rabbit, Kaka Sungura or as I call him, Mr 254 has done it again!! This guy has revolutionized Kenyan music over and over and over. He came up with a new sound that created a new platform for other artists who otherwise would’ve just been doing most of their stuff on small scale. The first time I heard him on Swahili Shakespeare I was blown away quite literally. I couldn’t believe I was listening to poetry on The beat, playing alongside mainstream music. I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to do next. Year after year after year, more and more color, more and more realness, more and more art.
That look you give hawa wasanii.
I think my opinion may be a bit subjective cause I’ve met him a couple of times and I think he is quite the looker. I completely adore his fashion sense and the way he has remained grounded despite of all the successes that have come with his name, his brand. You have got to admit nonetheless, he is quite the masterpiece. Not one of his songs sounds the same way as the other, there is growth, there is delivery, there is a originality
Have You Watched My New Video ‘Senzenina’ directed by the talented @jibrilblessing What’s your favorite line from the art? Link on my bio. @flymedia254
His recent release Senzenina, such a heavenly tune to carry all what has been happening around us. He creates the picture for us, if you have ever lost a loved one, you identify with every line in that song. When you loose someone you love there is always that lingering thought that they are coming back, you keep thinking you are being pranked that they’ll appear one day and you’ll laugh about it. Over and over and over, going through all what you did together you cannot believe they are not with you anymore. The tunes carried by Redfourth chorus create the perfect mood as you reminisce, creating that hopeful yet sombre kind of feel. Rabbit then comes in with a soft voice recounting all the torturous moments we go through when we mourn. Word after word, he speaks directly to your soul. The varieties in his voice beef up the emotions, from sad to angry to frustrated to confusion then finally to acceptance. This song is gold, not only because its soulful, not because its poetic, but because it is real, and that is art.
