In 2018,did you hear the voice behind the new Hip Hop song dubbed ‘Who Is She‘ that went so viral on social media and air waves? For those who don’t know, it is was by a young female upcoming rapper called Recho Rey who came out in the lime light after taking part in the ‘Who Is Who’ rap challenge.
Truth be told, this young artist is on the scene with fire and like many say, ‘she has work’. Her music is cool and can flow well. In that song ‘Who Is She’, it was was alleged that she was attacking some rappers like Gravity Omutujju, Feffe Bussi and Fik Fameica, a thing she denies to this day.
#MotivationFoundationUG managed to interact closely with her about her personal life and her music career.
Who is Recho Rey?
I am a young upcoming Hip Hop artiste born in 1998. My true name is Rachael Mirembe. A muganda by tribe. I am very new in the industry but I am very optimistic that I am going to make it happen in all ways of life and sooner I will be above the crowd leading this Hip-Hop thing.
Take us through your education back ground?
I went to Makula Day And Boarding School for my primary education then later I joined Namboole High School for my ordinary level and Standard High School for my A’ level and I joined Makerere University after.
Did your parents second you to join the music industry?
My parents are so much into Christianity and my kind of music tends to deviate from their perception of things. The good thing is that they gave me a benefit of doubt to go ahead and they accepted to swallow it hard. Right now they are seeing some progress and slowly by slowly they are getting on my side.
How many songs do you have?
I have four songs. So far two audios and one video of ‘Who Is She’. However I am working hard on more songs sooner you will see fire in Hip Hop.
The latest Three are Guma bakunyige featuring Mun G,Teri kuzikiza and Malala.
What inspired you to sing?
It is my friends at school. I tried it one time and later on when they came and asked me to join them in their song using my style of singing, the whole thing came out cool better than I had thought and from there on,everyone always wanted to hear me do Hip-Hop. So I decided to continue with it to date.
Why did you attack Fik Fameica and Gravity Omutujju in your song ‘Who Is She’?
That is what most people are saying. But I have no beef with Gravity or any other Hip Hop artiste. I was not attacking anyone truth be told. I was just being creative and that is it. My creativity coincidentally just collided with their work.
Any collabos with other artistes?
I have so far done a collabo with Big Ben Sekuya the song is ‘Mbupa’. However,I harnessed this collaboration from a Hip Hop Boot camp.
And also the new song hitting airwaves with MunG called Guma Bakunyige that is a dancehall party song riddim.
Where do you see yourself in a few years from now?
I will be a big Hip Hop star against all odds. Let them wait for me just in my time, I will be.
Are you in a relationship?
No, I am not yet into those things. But when they come in line, you will know.
Where do you derive your inspiration to sing?
Often times I derive my inspiration from personal experiences and people around me.
Being an upcoming what are some of the challenges you face along the way?
Surely,challenges are always part of the journey, but I am strong. Usually we young upcoming artists are undermined, sometimes underrated, no respect, and if you’re not strong enough to bare some humiliations you can end up quitting the game.
