Ruyonga, one of the pillars of Ugandan hip hop looks back on the journey and some of his great and not so great moments in the industry while referencing the young ones in the game.
If you’re a true fan of hip hop and you have been listening to radio lately, you must have been wondering what happened to Ruyonga. The wait is over folks. The boy is back with another banger called The Journey off Producer Simon Elly’s upcoming album dubbed Exodus.
Together with the award winning producer Simon Elly, Ruyonga has dropped a classic once again.
Ruyonga, one of the pillars of Ugandan hip hop looks back on the journey and some of his great and not so great moments in the industry while referencing the young ones in the game. The track has Ruyonga being sincere and bringing out the little kid spitting rhymes in Lyrical G’s basement. He talks about how Klear Kut members told him life is entertainment. He raps: “This life is really what you make it, Tom and Danny taught me life is really an entertainment”.
When you listen deeply, this track feels like Ruyonga is sending a message to Uganda’s hip hop community; a message to the people he started with, a message to his fans that he may have lost along the way but still deeply rooted in hip hop, those fans that got to know him because of tracks like Tutuuse, a message meant to bring about reconciliation between Ruyonga and the hip hop industry as the rapper gravitates to the Prophet Mbonye Ministries spiritually, which some of his hip hop fans have vehemently spoken out against.
