Tell us about your journey in the world of music and your songs.
While growing up, choosing music as a career was not a simple act of passion, as I faced a lot of struggles. To follow my passion, I started working as a music producer and produced around 50-55 songs which gave a boost to my career, and people started to know me as “Kaka On The Beat Bhai”. After scaling up in my music career, now I am a singer, writer, producer, and performer. With an inspiration to make people happy and visualize the world through my eyes, I am on the lookout to create music that can touch one’s soul.
One of my special ones is “Bholenath - A Love Story” is the divine love story of Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati and that song depicts the story of Lord Shiva’s life. Similarly, “SHE” is one such of my creations whereby I have created the story of a woman who is going through a tough time. And my latest song, “MADAM” is just about happy and groovy music that’s just meant for dancing. It has always been my passion to try different genres of music and I aim to create that always for my audience!
Why is your Instagram handle called Kaka WRLD?
As I said, it all started with “Kaka On The Beat Bhai”. So, Kaka is my stage name. I wanted to go with a catchy and easy name and Kaka is all about that. WRLD is just another word for ‘World’. So it’s all about my world “Kaka WRLD”.
When did you decide to take singing as a career and how has been the experience till date?
