MTN HIPHOP AWARDS 2019: Recho Rey, Feffe Bussi Shine Brightest As Gravity Omutujju Gets Booed

Fresh blood Rachael Mirembe known by her stage name Recho Rey stunned many established rappers like MC Yallah and Facie to win the Female Rapper of the Year award at the #MTNHIPHOPAWARDS2019 on Friday 8th February. She had also won the Rookie of the Year award merging victorious against all odds as she had to tussle it out with boys in this particular category.

Recho Rey just came on to the music scene recently after participating in the Who is who rap challenge initiated by another word smith Feffe Bussi who coincidentally walked away with the Male Rapper of the Year award.

Feffe Bussi and Recho Rey were the biggest winners on the night at the MTN Hiphop Awards.

The surprise winner on the day was Gravitty Omutujju whose win as Best Rapper from Central did not only raise eyebrows, but was loudly booed when his name was read out.

The Lugaflo rapper looked the odd man out in the category that also had JK Lubanto, Fefe Bussi, Jim Nola MC and Recho Rey nominated and the crowd seems unimpressed with his win. Luckily for him, he was not in attendance to receive his trophy personally.

Recho Rey also put up a flawless performance to cap a remarkable night.
