Kenyan-born rapper Kaycyy Pluto, real name Mark Mbogo is living the dream of most other twenty-something year olds.

He’s going to basketball games with iconic billionaire rappers and mingling with A-list stars at their event after-parties. He is also on the verge of a major career break-through, having early on established notable business relationships and networks in the international music industry.

Earlier this week, the 24 year old artiste took to his Instagram account to upload enviable photos of a night out with Ye, who is popularly known as Kanye West, Diddy’s son King Combs, and Ye’s rumoured girlfriend, Vinetria among other friends.

He told GQ magazine that he got into music through performing in church, and then recording raps with friends. His breakthrough reportedly came after he watched his brother perform Kanye West’s Heartless at a school talent show.

“He came into contact with his current manager Abou “Bu” Thiam, approximately four years ago and his career’s been on an upward trajectory ever since. A good friend of Kanye’s, Abou introduced him to the star, who ended up signing him to his new record label YZY SND.” GQ reported in August.
