He went on and thanked his wife Nana Owiti for being a supportive partner and asked his fans to pray for him.
“Dear fans, it’s only right that I share this with you. I have been sick for 3 months and 8 days now. I was misdiagnosed. Lost 33kgs and in the process, we started hospital visits, I did all the tests and they were negative, funny thing is I feel no pain and we are still hopeful that we will get a solution soon” he wrote.
King Kaka went on and shared that his clothes don’t fit anymore as he had dropped from waist 36 to 33. He also mentioned that he was surviving on fruits and porridge until three weeks ago when he started eating real food.
“My waist was 36 now it’s 33, was consuming only uji (porridge) and few fruits, started eating food 3 weeks ago. I have a new respect for God and life, the closest friends that knew thank you for always checking up. The doctor said instead of just sitting around I try doing what makes me happy,”
He added that he had recorded an EP that he would name ‘happy hour’
“Thankfully I had recorded my EP and didn’t have a name for it but now I have every reason to call it Happy ‘happy hour’. While I am in my final recovery stages I will show you some of the stories and how I got.”
