He has not forgotten that experience and recalled that life-changing moment. The first indication he gave that he has been unwell was a short caption.
"Hospital ceilings are really boring, always pray for good health," he wrote.
Worried fans asked questions that were answered over months. In 2021, King Kaka got a diagnosis that would forever change his life.
His problem started with a sore throat after a family trip to the coast that led to many hospital visits.
King Kaka said that it got so bad he had to seek medical attention and he was given some antibiotics.
“I have never been that sick with such a bad sore throat. I was being injected four times a day. Three weeks later the sore throat came back. I lost my sense of taste. At first, I thought it was Covid. My skin became abnormally smooth and I realised I had lost weight,” said King Kaka.
He said he had been sick for more than three months after he was misdiagnosed.
"I was misdiagnosed. Lost 33kgs and in the process, we started hospital visits. Did all the tests and they were negative. Funny thing is I feel no pain and we are still hopeful we will get the solution soon," he shared.
The rapper thanked his wife Nana Owiti for standing by him through the trying time.
