King Kaka rubs shoulders with Hollywood royalty at Cannes Film Festival

Kenyan rapper King Kaka, real name Kennedy Ombima, on Wednesday joined world’s biggest film stars who were descending upon the French Riviera for the annual Cannes Film Festival.

The ‘Dundaing’ hit maker rubbed shoulders with some high-profile celebrities across the globe at the 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival.

The rapper could not wait to share pictures on social media.

“History is made. First Kenyan musician to grace the red carpet in 72 years,” he claimed.

He also shared another picture with American singer Selena Gomez.

“That’s me and Selena Gomez. Dedicating this post to all Kenyan girls. Believe you are strong, believe you are capable and believe anything is possible. Inspiration from Selena Gomez for each one of you.”

The Cannes Film Festival started on May 14 and will end on May 25.

Last year, Wanuri Kahiu’s gay themed film “Rafiki” became the first Kenyan feature to debut at the festival.
