Kenyan rapper Kennedy Ombima alias King Kaka has unveiled the house he has built for his mother as a show of appreciation.

King Kaka penned a heartfelt message to his mother and shared a photo of them together online.

He recalled how his family was once locked out of their house over Sh500 monthly rent.


"One day I came home from school and Kanjo had placed a very big padlock coz we couldn’t afford to pay Sh500 rent, I promised my mom that in the future I’ll buy her a house.

"Fast forward 4 days ago we just prayed in the living room of this house that I built for her. The sounds of testimony and I am happy that she has a place she can call home. Thank you mom for putting on a brave face over the years even when I knew things were not okay. Asante and be blessed. To all the believers, it’s possible! And God is love," he posted.


In a past interview on the Iko Nini Podcast, King Kaka disclosed that he lied to his mother that he had secured a scholarship from Eastleigh High School as one of the best performing students.

However, in reality, he was engaging in side hustles that helped him raise money for school.

According to the rapper, by the time he was in Form Three, he had already cleared his school fees for the rest of his education there.

By the time I was in Form Three I had already paid my fees for Form Four. I told her [King Kaka's mother] I am one of the top five students and therefore had a scholarship,” he said in a recent interview with Mwafreeka.
