Kamlesh to release ‘Breaking News’

Patrick Kagaba who goes by the stage name of Kamlesh Kagaba lost his mother in 2014. A tragedy that turned out to be a moment of great awakening came with colossal amounts of pain. What he describes as one of the most painful moments in his life sharply reminded him of the frailty and temporal nature of this life and thus led to the birth of the project “Breaking News.”

The project released  in partnership with Urban Light Recordings seeks to highlight the need of prioritizing what is most important in the life of an individual. The first single of the album is already out and you can listen to by clicking this link Breaking News.

He is a multi-talented and respected artiste in Kenya and beyond with rare skills in rap, songwriting and poetry who has been in the music industry for approximately 10 years now.

He released his first album in 2011 titled “In dependence”. The album got a highly rated review from top music industry players and served to push him to the wider East African countries with successful tours in Uganda and Tanzania. He has been nominated in the renowned Mwafaka awards and even performed alongside great international artistes such as Da Truth, Lecrae, Andy Mineo and Trip Lee.

A dedicated husband and father who believes in the family institution and also serves in his local church uses his platform to proclaim the hope that is contained in the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is passionate about the youth and hopes to lead them in a path of transformation and empowerment through his art.


This will be an event held at the Safaricom Michael Joseph Centre in West lands on the 13th of December 2015 to officially launch the Breaking News Project, breaking news album and a celebration concert thereafter. The event targets the youth between the ages of 16-35 years.
