KAKIC UNIVERSE CELEBRATING 2 YEARS!
We are excited to be celebrating our second Anniversary today! 2 Years ago we officially registered as a company and have experienced amazing success within an industry that is small and still growing!
What have we achieved so far?
In our First year our focus was more entertainment oriented, We produced a lot of entertainment content that we showcased at many public platforms, functions and presentations, you can read more on our first anniversary and our achievements on the link below:
5 September 2018! Celebrating the start up of Kakic Universe from our very first production, The Life and Time of Choice Zvenhamo to the Latest Productions and shows. Within a year we have had amazing growth, expaning the team and personel, acquiring important contacts and partners. Setting a foundation for the future! Our Goal for the first year was to set a foundation, and we have managed to do so!
What Did we do in the Second Year?
We decided to focus more on our business side in the second year, reaching more clients, creating more content for social media marketing, promotional campaigns and advertising. Check out our Business Social Media Accounts (@kakicbusiness) to check out the work we did for our clients,Below is an image with all of our clients:
Even though we were Business Oriented for our second year, we did engage the public with our entertainment content,
We succesfully exhibited at COMEXPOSED CONVERGE 2018, and hosted a popular voice over challenge which the crowd absolutely loved! Check it out below:
3 October was Comexposed Converge 2018 and Kakic Universe was a part of it! What is Comexposed? According to their website: “Comexposed Enables you to Discover African art. It is an industry hub, where media & entertainment artists can keep up with each other and find new inspiration every day and where publishers have the opportunity to get their works in the hands of their fans. Kakic Universe was showcasing videos, current work and we brought in a new feature! Free Voice Overs!We released our new video “Knock Out”, A boxing match video about the epic fight between Gwinya Gwinya and Madanga! And Instead of having one of us do the voice over like we usually do for our videos, We got the audience to come and do the voice over for free!
And recently we had our Official Launch! We properly launched our brand, explained our vision and more! Read about the Kakic Universe Official Launch below:
And today we officially launch our website! Feel free to go through our blog/news page to see all of our achievements, updates and stories from the beginning to date. Visit our Productions page to see our videos, artwork and more,

What Happened to Untouchable & Choice?
If you’ve gone through our website and posts, or if you are a loyal follower of our work and content, then you should be familiar or have seen mention of Untouchable The Super Christian and The Life and Time of Choice Zvenhamo (which features Jah Kaylite and others). These titles were our first set of productions, but where are they and what happened to them?
Untouchable the Super Christian
The Story of Tinashe Madzivanyika, a devout christian who goes through various trials and tribulations but he overcomes because of his firm belief and faith in God. We showcased the trailer at various functions during our early days, like our First Presentation at the 29th Day of the 100 Days of learning and our First TV Interview and GIBF 2017 (Read about these stories below),
Untouchable is actually a big deal, it helped us gain our first set of followers and put us on the map. However, the problem was this was our first production, If you have read on Kudakwashe’s Journey, from the earlier posts on this website, you should know that he started working on Untouchable and other projects straight out of high school.
So as of now, we have improved on many things in terms of quality, and so to release Untouchable’s 15 Episodes which are of a lower quality than what we can do now would not really fit with our goals. So Untouchable, is being upgraded and is still in production and you should see the new trailer before the year ends!
Choice Zvenhamo was the very first character and series ever produced by Kudakwashe and Kakic Universe back in 2014, and you can check out a glimpse of the first video on the Official Launch Post. The Choice Zvenhamo series is also the home of the popular Dance Hall Musician, JAH KAYLITE, and his song, “Mari Kunevanogeza”, and if you somehow missed that video, watch it below:
Jah Kaylite has proven to be a fan favourite! We showcased his video at GIBF 2017 and the Official Launch and people love the Dancehall star, as for social media, Facebook and Instagram users completely went crazy with the star, this video received a lot of engagement with the Zimbabwean Population.
So the series will be coming officially soon, stay tuned as more details will come in future!
Social Media Presence & Legal Framework
One of our primary objectives within our first 5 years of business was focused on establishing our Brand and Business properly in terms of paperwork, finances and other legalities. Kakic Universe is registered with the Registrar of Companies of Zimbabwe and all proper legal paper work is in place. Furthermore, we are registered with all the proper authorities that regulate Arts and Entertainment like the Arts Council of Zimbabwe and the Zimbabwe Film and Development Platform.
We wanted to first have our house in order before launching a full scale campaign on Social media and we have successfully done that! Investors and sponsors can now come in as the appropriate paperwork/framework has been set up creating more opportunities for us as an actual Business Entity. Setting all of this up That being said, one of our main goals in our third year going forward is increasing our social media presence and building our fan base! So expect a more aggressive social media presence from us going forward!
While we are here, why don’t you check out our social media accounts below, do us a favour and follow us!
