Powerhouse rapper Kai Ca$h crossed paths with King Kanja through Kai’s father, BK Rube, the Brooklyn legend of the Notorious B.I.G’s Junior Mafia and Grammy award-winning R&B / Soul legend Faith Evans who were very close to Kanja’s mentor, the late super-producer Chucky Thompson. This destined collaboration is aimed to cross borders from Brooklyn, New York to Nairobi, Kenya and around the world!
It’s been two years since the superstar was last home in Kenya and is set to commence a Kenyan media tour with this new release. He says, “I anticipate being in touch with family, friends and fans to share the growth I’ve had as a person and recording artist, but also to gain inspiration from being in my homeland Kenya. Nothing, absolutely
nothing and nowhere feels like home”
