Kaka Empire founder King Kaka had dropped a new jam dubbed ‘Mbekse’ featuring rapper Femi One and Jadi music group.

‘Mbekse’ is a slang word that means two. In the song’s graphic, there is a hand with two fingers in the sky, which is a global representation of peace.

‘Mbekse’ advocates for peace, the freedom from disturbance, tranquility and inner peace.

The song is part of a partnership between USAID and King Kak meant to promote peaceful co-existence across the country.

“I am really excited for this partnership with USAID. Growing up in the ghetto hizi vitu zilikuwa tu ndoto. I am putting up this post so that all the dreamers know that anything is possible , we should never limit our dreams and ambitions. To God The Glory,” King Kaka posted.

Released on Monday September 21, ‘Mbekse’ coincided with the World International Day of Peace celebrations.

Following the song’s release, King Kaka and USAID launched a challenge dubbed ’16 Bars of Peace’ where artists do a song and tag King Kaka and USAID.

Those who nail the challenge stand a chance to win some cash and feature on the final ‘Mbekse’ song.

Here are the rules for the challenge:
