Award-winning rapper and businessman Kennedy Ombima, popularly known as King Kaka, has revealed a substantial investment of Sh6 million in his latest project, the series “Monkey Business.”

In an interview with Mpasho’s Dennis Milimo, King Kaka disclosed that the casting for the series began in December of last year, with filming starting in January 2024. “Between December and now, we’ve spent at least Sh6 million. I’ll calculate how much we’ve made from the premiere of ‘Monkey Business’,” said King Kaka.

King Kaka shared that a total of 162 people have been involved in the production of the series. “The minimum set size was at least 40 people, but there are scenes in episode three where the number goes up to 162,” he added.

Expressing his joy, King Kaka stated, “This is my second film, and I’m so happy. I hear there are people who missed seats today, and I’m very thankful because it shows that people are excited and happy about the Kenyan film industry.”

The CEO of Kaka Empire extended his gratitude to those who attended the “Monkey Business” premiere. “I loved this experience, seeing Kenyans all dressed up. Tailors have made a good fortune this week, and those who did décor and even those who printed our posters have benefited.”

When asked why he chose Scar Mkadinali as the main actor for the series, King Kaka replied, “Scar has been a good friend and very passionate about film. I told him, ‘Do you know you can act? I always see you in music videos.’ So, I took him to acting classes, and he did very well.”
