Kenyan music star King Kaka is set to officially release his much-anticipated gospel album dubbed '2nd Life' on 24th December 2022. The album commemorates the period when the veteran singer was hospitalized for months. The rapper was forced to take a break from music production after his health deteriorated following a misdiagnosis. He revealed in a past interview how the illness that lasted for a long time brought him close to God.

Fortunately, he bounced back from the illness and made a full recovery. King Kaka in the '2nd Life' album expresses gratitude to God for the recovery. The title of the album was motivated by the fact that God had given him a second chance in life. Doctors had at the time of his diagnosis predicted that only had 30 days to live.

12 out of the 16 tracks are collaborations with top music personalities within and beyond Kenya. Some of the artists who have been featured on the album include; Alpha Mwana Mtule, Femi One, Jadi, Alyn Sano, Kivumbi, Wanavokali, Watendawili, Kanambo Dede, Iyanii, Anastacia Muema, Solomon Mkubwa, Phyllis Mbuthia, Walter Chilambo, and Zamunda among others. 

There is a lot of diversity in the collaborations; from the generations of artists to styles of music.  One can already tell that the album has been tailored for people of all age groups. The songs too, going by the featured artists, will be applicable in almost all registers including church services.

The 'Swahili Shakespeare' hitmaker has so far released music videos from the album. The released tracks include; 'Umenibariki' featuring Goodluck Gozbert, 'Asante' featuring Kidum, and 'Manifest' featuring Nviiri The Story Teller. The three songs were produced by Sifa and Wuod Omollo.
