The 'king' took to the stage at 1am and delivered a two-hour performance with three sets in between the show.

Hundreds of Jeshi ya Kaka, as fans of rapper King Kaka prefer calling themselves, filled up Uhuru Gardens in Nairobi on Friday evening to witness the launch of the rapper’s second album titled Eastlando Royalty.

Various deejays including DJ JR 254, Willthedeejay and DJ Leqs among others kept the crowd on their feet as the evening progressed.

The ‘king’ took to the stage at 1am and delivered a two-hour performance with three sets in between the show.

Each set had its own video package to introduce the music.

The second set brought out King Kaka’s alter ego, Rabbit, as he delivered more in depth tracks with some poetic background.

Artistes such as Paskal Tokodi, Steph Kapela, Brian Nadra and Bridget Blue, who are featured in the album, performed on stage alongside the ‘king’.

The surprise act was Man Njoro, who featured in the track Uko Sure. He jumped on stage and performed the hit song from some year’s back.

Also to joining King Kaka on stage was Wangechi and Femi One, who were featured in the remix to the hit single Ligi Soo.

Naturally, King Kaka was the show stopper as he stepped on the stage to perform his controversial club anthem Dundaing featuring Kristoff and Magicx Enga.

The crowd simply couldn’t have enough of the hit which they sang along to word for word.

FRANCIS NDERITU

They say anyone can be a photographer until you get to the "manual" setting, the art and passion that such a career brings forthwith is what makes photography the best career choice one can make. Been doing this since 2009 and it has been the best decision ever.

My work at Nairobi News involves proving online digital content from pictures and videos ranging from different topics and situations one comes across. Events happening around from concerts, art shows, exhibitions and all there is when it comes to entertainment.

Francis Nderitu is a Nairobi-based photographer with an extensive career in media. Currently working as an online photographer for Nation Media Group website Nairobi News. Having an eye for pictures is the art behind being an amazing photographer, I see myself not just being amazing but also amazed at what one can achieve in a matter of seconds when you click your camera.
I like to think as a photographer, you see an image, freeze it in your mind then click away. The feeling of creating art from your images is what gives me pleasure in my line of work.
