Rapper King Kaka has been giving partial details about his illness that saw him lose massive weight after being hospitalised for two months.

Taking to social media earlier today, King Kaka shared about his mysterious sickness with his photos on a hospital bed just two days after admission.

He further lauded his wife Nana Owiti for sticking beside him as well as his other family members terming them as a blessing.

“That’s me, still can’t believe it. 2 days after I was admitted and they had just finished drilling on my hip bone for a bone marrow sample. I was in between worlds fighting to see my family once more. I would force my last smile when Nana and Moms visited but the truth is the nights got darker and I would be back in the ring with life. It’s a feeling and place you can’t put in words. Nights when the devil threw in a few suggestions but the light got stronger for me to listen,” he wrote.

“Not yet out of the woods but I’ve just realized that waking up is a Blessing, are you able to eat? that’s a blessing. Do you have a support system? That’s a blessing,” he added.

Nana on her page shared a short video of King Kaka with hospital tubes with a lengthy caption that read:

“What you guys never got to see. I will never stop thanking God for taking us out of the lions’ den. I had never seen such darkness in a while. Every day I thought I had seen the worst, I saw the ‘worstest’ the next day… I watched my husband constantly knock on death’s door but still wore God’s amour. Maybe he was knocking on the door so he could knock the devil off.

On the real, he put up a fight. He never gave up and if he ever did once, he never showed it. On this day, he just got super sick and we couldn’t get to the hospital because of traffic and so the doctor hopped onto a motorbike and met us on the way.”
