Welcome! First some punctuation would really help the readability of your posts
The oil in the air filter housing is coming from the engine breather. This can be from a couple things. The oil may have been overfilled or excessive wear in the engine may be causing pressure in the crankcase pushing a lot of vapor into the airbox.
The engine is liquid cooled. The oil does play a part in engine cooling but it's not considered "oil cooled"
It's hard to see from your pictures but if any of the crank breather piping is split it would be best to replace it. Someone's already been in there as those hose clamps aren't stock.
I would suggest cleaning it all up, replace any broken breather hoses, make sure your oil is at the proper level and ride it a few hundred miles the recheck to see if oil is reappearing in the airbox.
How many miles are on your bike? How long have you owned it?

Hey man yeah sorry about crappy punctuation and I’ve owned it for about a month now and it’s got around 20160 kms on it I bought it around 19950 kms but where that top clamp is there is a split directly next to it so I’ll have to replace it assuming is there a specific name for it and can I buy it at any local motorcycle shop ur does it to be Kawasaki thanks for the help

It'll be a Kawasaki specific part but a local bike shop should be able to order it for you. Make sure you keep an eye on the airbox after getting it cleaned out as that much oil on it isn't normal.
