Is rapper Rabbit King Kaka ditching secular for gospel?
Celebrated rapper Kevin Ombima better known Rabbit King Kaka says he doesn’t know the time he would shift camp from secular music to gospel.
Fans across the divide questioned the rapper’s move to engage gospel star Bahati in recording a collabo, Kuchu Kuchu, which, according to sections, indicated Rabbit could soon be ditching the secular industry.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, Kaka said: “I cannot say I’ll cross over to the gospel camp soon; but when I do, it will be out of calling – just like Moses in the Bible.”
“There are very few people in today’s world who are called by God to serve. And when that person happens to be me, I will oblige,” added the Adisia hit-maker.
According to the rapper most gospel musicians of current times are in the industry for financial gains.
“Nowadays, people do gospel for commercial purposes, they play with hope and do a lot of hypocritical stuff – you won’t fail to note that if you keenly observe our churches today,” he said.
The 28-year-old, however, says there are no grounds worth causing a divide between artistes in the opposing camps or factions.
“No one should judge. Whoever is condemning (gospel-secular collabo) should go ahead; but he should know someone too will judge him.”
“All of us are God’s children. There are those who are good, and those who fall off. Even in a family, children portray different attributes; but the mother loves them equally. God loves all of us (secular and gospel artistes) unconditionally.”
He added: “We are all musicians, we are all sinners; we all talk to God, not forgetting we are all friends. So, why shouldn’t we speak to one another because of our religious differences?”
Daringly, he even revealed there’s yet another collabo with a gospel musician in the offing.
“I have a collabo with a gospel artiste; we will launch it soon. The video is already shot and edited. It’s a surprise.”
“I always pray before shows, and before going for interviews. So, I put that prayer and testimony into Bahati’s song, and I am glad it did well,” he added.
Showing his prowess in matters religion, Rabbit even ‘quoted’ the Holy Book.
“The Bible says God loves it when we humble ourselves before Him, ask for forgiveness of our sins and return to Him,” he said, adding: “All my ability comes from Him, and one of my songs has these lyrics – “as much as mnaniita King, mi najua yeye ndiye king of kings.”
