Rapper King Kaka has shared how his entrepreneurship journey began. In an interview on Iko Nini, King Kaka said he started doing business in high school because his mother could not fully provide for him.
King Kaka says he would run multiple businesses, pay his school fees and tell his mother that he had won a scholarship for being a top performer in school.
"In school, I used to be a businessman, I would buy mandazi at 3 bob and sell them at 5 bob. By 7.20 AM, I would have sold 200 mandazis and made 400 bob. I started paying my own fees and lied to my mum that I had gotten a scholarship.
I also used to sell poetry pieces, I wrote many love letters and would sell at 50-70 bob. I would also sell T-shirts and DVDs," King Kaka shared.
King Kaka kept his dealings secret so that his mum couldn't think he was involved in illegal dealings.
"But I could not take all the money to the bursar because he would start being suspicious. I would take 2000...1500...By form 3, I had already paid form four fees."
