The Kanda family is a musical family with Kanda and his wife Kamson leading the African Rhythm Band.The couple has greatly influenced their son, Kanda junior who’s also an outstanding dancer.Kanda’s elder sister Princess Farida saw the light and sings gospel music.

Kanda King walks with a limp after undergoing a successful hip replacement surgery at a city hospital.

In one of his past interview’s,Kanda king attributed his hip problems to lack of warming up before hitting the stage.

The Ndani ya box singer is currently back on his feet and no longer uses a walking aid.The beat goes on during his weekly city show’s.

We wish the Kanda family well during this trying period.
