Kenyan-born Rapper Mark Makora Mbogo popularly known as Kaycyy Pluto is setting the Kenyan flag high on the map as he continuously breaks records and caves his name.

Kaycyy who resides in the US is a talented rapper, songwriter, and singer who currently boasts the title of Spotify's most streamed Kenyan artist based in America.

According to recently dropped statistics the "Hold You Up" hit-maker currently rakes up over 533 thousand monthly listeners on the music app.

Kaycyy has been a force to be reckoned with ever since he joined the music industry. Last year, the 25-year-old won a special recognition in the 64th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony that was held in Las Vegas on April 3. 

The rapper got recognition for his role in the hit song "Hurricane" from Kanye's award-winning album Donda. In the song that features American rapper Kanye West and the Weekend, Kaycyy debuts in the song in the role of lead vocalist.

Taking to his social media, the rapper flaunted the recognition as he gave thanks to God. KayCyy wrote; 

"Hurricane! OMG! I knew you were a special one. Praise God man! Wow!" 

The artist has also worked with Beyonce's protege Chloe Bailey and American rapper Fivio. Not forgetting the fact that the queen or rap Nicki Minaj, last year sent a shout-out to him as she recognized his spectacular work.

Coming home on Spotify's most streamed artists, Sauti Sol's Bien clenches the title as the most streamed Kenyan artist.

Celebrating the news, the "Inauma" hitmaker took to his Instagram stories to share the news and weirdly enough thank his ancestors.

"Claimed my Spotify profile just the other day and now I got the most monthly listeners by a Kenyan artist. My ancestors are overworking!" Bien excitedly wrote.

The artist currently boasts over 433 monthly listeners.

Coming in at number two and three respectively (on the Kenyan list) is fast-rising artist Lexsil followed by "Baby Love" hitmaker Otile Brown.

Lexsil rakes in over 424 monthly listeners while Otile gets over 388 monthly listeners.
