Kabongo was born and raised in Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of Congo) and subsequently relocated to South Africa during the war with his family. They later moved to Toronto, in 1998.

Since 2009, Kabongo has starred in several feature films and guest-starred on a variety of television programs.

He won the award for Best African Actor at the 2013 African Entertainment Awards, [1] in Toronto. He completed the Actors Conservatory Program at the Canadian Film Centre in 2015. From 2014-2016, Kabongo co-produced the award-winning web series Teenagers alongside filmmaker M. H. Murray. Kabongo also starred as T, the series' lead male protagonist, a role that earned him a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Performance in a Program or Series Produced for Digital Media, in 2016. Also in 2016, Kabongo produced and starred in the short film A Man's Story, for which he received funding from BravoFACT. The short film went on to premiere at the ReelWorld Film Festival in Toronto, where it won the Impact Award for Best Short Film of 2016. [2]
