Genge musician Jimwat has admitted that he rebuffed King Kaka’s request for a collabo in mid 2000s.
King Kaka revealed in December, 2017 that the ‘Under 18’ hit-maker rejected his collabo bid, when Jimwat was the bigger artiste of the two.
The ‘Baadaye’ hit-maker said – in his song called ‘Angels’ – that Jimwat approached him for a collabo after he (King Kaka) became a household name in Kenya – a request which he rejected.
Well, Jimwat has now clapped back at King Kaka, telling the self-proclaimed king of rap that he shouldn’t have made public their past differences.
Jimwat made the remarks on Citizen Television’s 10 Over 10 show on Friday, March 9.
“Hakuna king huwa anaji-crown; kings huwa wanakuwa crowned na wadhii. Ni sawa nilikunyima collabo, lakini si lazima utangaze. Yafaa ucheze chini. Kama ni kubishana ni nani king, tunajua kuwa Juacali ni Baba yao. Mimi ni prince (There is no king who crowns himself. All kings ascend to such a powerful position as a result of people’s endorsement and blessings. It is true I denied you (King Kaka) a collabo, but you shouldn’t have gone public with such information. You ought to have approached me so that we address the issue at a personal level. And if a debate arises on who is king of Kenyan music, then I think Juacali deserves that title, with me as his prince,” said Jimwat.
The ‘Sitoi Kitu Kidogo’ hit-maker also revealed on the Citizen TV interview that he is a now a father of a baby girl.
