The rapper went ahead and thanked his wife Nana Owiti for standing by him through the trying time.

"While I am in my final recovery stages I will show you some of the stories and how I got. I miss my kids, my wife @nanaowiti has been a great pillar through the 3 months and my mom," said King Kaka as he asked Kenyans to continue praying for him.

However, King Kaka will not let his illness bring down his spirit as he recently recorded an EP, which he has decided to call 'Happy Hour' as he tries to remain positive.

He also recently released a new music series dubbed 'Diana', a nine-part music series running between 1:20 to 4 minutes per episode, featuring Marini founder Michelle Ntalami. The series tackles societal issues surrounding gender-based violence, something the rapper says needs to be addressed to reduce stigma and victimisation.
