Song Review: Ride By Ruyonga

“Ruyonga is a Ugandan hip hop music and spoken word artist whose former moniker “Krukid” was fondly given to him in high school after a basketball accident left his face temporarily disfigured in the US.


He was one of the pioneering hip hop acts back in Uganda, with his first group winning a nationwide music competition in 2000. Mostly known for his ‘Muhiliire’ song,the emcee recently released ‘Ride’ featuring Richy which is also receiving a lot of air play.”

His inspiration for Ride is:

‘When I listened to the beat, I was instantly inspired. The beat was so amazing and I just had to come up with something.’

‘The other reason is probably to challenge the status quo. Many musicians always sing about money, alcohol, sex and women among others, I just thought I would give an alternative to the mainstream and sing about education that’s why in one of my verses. It’s supposed to be a motivation for my young fans to stay in school because this world could use more clever people.‘ To read more about this, please check out our October magazine issue.
