Celebrated Kenyan rapper King Kaka on Wednesday gave a standing ovation after his song got played at American Airlines Center, Dallas, USA.
The musician was attending an NBA match between Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings when King Kaka's song 'Dundaing' featuring Kristoff and Magix Enga started playing in the arena.
In a video shared on social media, Kaka stood up and recorded the unique moment in the heavily packed stadium.
The climax of his attendance was when the live camera's at the stadium projected the rapper on the stadium's screens as the "Moment Of The Match".
"Nilikuwa nakula my Burrgerrrr (sic) pole pole (I was eating my burger without a hurry) during the Dallas Mavericks game and Dundaing starts to play. Maximum respect to Poizon Ivy the DJ for putting Kenyan music on the map," KIng Kaka tweeted.
A twitter handle @of_sheng questioned Kaka's presence at the match "Budah wewe pekee yako ndio una rada tune... acha kujisahau rudi area (Man, you are the only person in the stadium who seems conversant with the song. Don't forget who you are. Come back to Kenya)".
However, the rapper had a befitting answer, "Do you mean working hard means forgetting who you are? Given the opportunity, I am sure youll do the same thing, lets not be hypocrites, let’s be happy for each other.
"Wacha boy wa Eastlando afurahie. Ako NBA na ngoma yake inacheza. Period! (Let the boy from [Nairobi's] Eastlands enjoy. I am at the NBA and my music is playing," he remarked.
This is not the first that Kenyan born DJ Poizon Ivy, the first female in-arena resident deejay for the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, has hyped the song during the matches.
During the match, Sacramento Kings thrashed the Mavericks 125-121.
