The Couple Married Years After They Welcomed Their Kids

After they had lived together for many years as a couple and have become parents to two beautiful children, King Kaka finally popped the big question to his baby mama Nana sometime in 2018. The rapper went the whole mile by going down on one knee to propose and of course, he got his answer in the affirmative and much more.

King Kaka’s Wife is Somewhat of a Celebrity Just Like Him

Nana Owiti is a TV presenter today but growing up, she was that poor little girl who had to sleep on leaves because her family couldn’t afford the luxury of buying a mattress. Back then, the rain was like a curse to the family as it means that they won’t have access to their leafy bed for the night. Thus, every clap of thunder would bring her running back from school with the speed of lightning just to pluck enough leaves for their bedding before the heavens open.

King Kaka’s wife would go on to spend her growing up years in abject want and penury. Life was really rough for her during her formative years where she describes herself as being an unkempt young girl, a despondent little human, and a hopeless lass who never once dreamed that life will ever change for the better. However, in a weird way, she experienced a rare happiness inside even in the midst of penury.

Owiti had to contend with walking to school barefooted even when the ground was scorching hot. She recalls becoming a sprinter by default, running home from school daily with all her might just to escape the blazing sun. The grueling journey would lead her to find a little solace under the trees, resting her feet a bit before moving on. Yet, her tactics didn’t prevent her feet from cracking, and of course, the scales followed. She was desperate for shoes to curtail the ravaging on the soles of her feet but none was forthcoming.

Despite all her struggles, Nana Owiti kept hope alive, always motivated to change the course of her life which she has achieved by sheer hard work. The mother of two ascribed it all to the dreams and ambitions in the eyes of that little girl that had to walk barefoot on the scorching ground to and fro school every day. Today, she works with Switch TV as a co-host on the program ChatSpot.

Kaka and Nana Now Have Two Kids But She Suffered a Miscarriage with Her First Pregnancy

King Kaka’s spouse narrated the ordeal she had to face during their early days together. Her first pregnancy according to her ended in a miscarriage. She headed to the hospital with Kaka after she saw blood stains while in the washroom. An ultrasound later revealed that her baby has been dead for weeks.

While in the ER for medical evacuation, Nana mustered enough courage to ask where she went wrong. She was told that many reasons ranging from stress to hormonal imbalance could have caused it. Nana was grateful to her partner who hugged her tight as they mourned their little angel that they never met. Kaka was really the perfect spouse during her trying time, sitting right by her side when she woke up but that didn’t stop her mind from wandering.

Nana said she thought about a lot of things, including whether she will be able to conceive again and if she does, will she be able to carry it full term. She also wondered whether her relationship with King Kaka would survive the massive blow. With her eyes swollen, mind in a trance, soul fractured, heart dented, and womb childless, she dared to hope for another baby.

After her bad experience, it only took Nana Owiti three months to conceive again and this time things went well as the couple was blessed with their baby girl Gweth. Three years down the line, their son Prince Iroma joined the family in October 2017. Initially, they kept Iroma’s arrival under wraps but the Kenyan rapper later unveiled the face of the newborn, following which Nana took to her socials to announce his birth with a picture of the baby’s tiny feet.

While King Kaka and Nana were busy enjoying becoming parents for the second time, their daughter Gweth was having a difficult time accepting the new addition to the family. It was really hard for the girl to understand that she had to share dad and mum’s love with another person from then on. Owiti let on that Gweth refused even to hold her baby brother.

When Iroma was eventually brought home from the hospital, Gweth was completely pissed and wanted nothing to do with him. She actually told her mother to take the crying baby back to his own home and kept shouting for him to stop the crying. Gweth equally told Iroma to stop eating mummy whenever she sees the little boy feeding. However, she later came to understand that Iroma was her little brother and has been protective of him ever since.

Important to note that Gweth and Iroma are not King Kaka’s only children. He was involved in a previous relationship with musician Sage and fathered a daughter with her.
