Kenyan hip hop maestro King Kaka did not have nice words for the event organisers of this year’s JKUSA Awards when he stepped on stage. He paused his performance after a few minutes on stage to complain to his fans who had braved the cold and heavy rain in Juja about the quality of the sound of the much-hyped event.
“Wasee tukubaliane kwanza kabla hatujaendelea, sound iko chini, hii sound iko chini au sio? Tuko 2019 manze. Hii sound iko chini so tutaenda tukiendanga!”
said a seemingly agitated and bored King Kaka.
This is loosely translated to mean “guys we must first agree that the sound quality is poor. We are in 2019 surely! So we will just have to get this (performance) done away with as fast as possible!” This was received by much applause from the fans who were disappointed by the school’s student association lead by Clinton Osoro for a disorganised event.
The ‘Dundaing’ hitmaker who is also enjoying massive airplay from his recently released track featuring Odi wa Muranga ‘Nataka’ then went on to put on a halfhearted show that lasted for less than 40 minutes.
