Name: Alex “Flex D’Paper” Qwesigabo Birth Date: 19th Jan 1990 Nationality: Ugandan Profile: Growing Up in Kampala, Flex was influenced by the vibrant rap scene to take on a passion that he has had throughout his Childhood. He began rapping at the age of 12, but would later form a group named The Rapaholix with his High School Mate Dasper Cosine. While in Senior 3 at Seeta High School, Flex won The Buzz Magazine High School rap competition. This was in the same period that 50 Cent released his ‘Get Rich Or Die Trying’ debut album, which according to Flex was a great inspiration in his pursuit of a rap career. He started writing his original rap songs and produced his first record, ‘Take Me Away’ featuring Liz Ann in 2009. The Take Me Away video went on to receive heavy rotation on local television networks, introducing Flex D’Paper as a player in the game, and attracting the media’s attention. The song’s success led to a review of the video in the Saturday Vision’s Teens Segment on the 17th of April 2010, and Sunday Monitor’s T-VIBE Segment scripted the Lyrics to the Song on the 26th of September 2010. This further opened doors for Flex into the Kampala Hip Hop fraternity as he would later guest star on different artists tracks and Mix tapes, like CHANNEL O Africa’s “top most” number 6 radio presenter 2013, Brian McKenzie’s Rude boy Mix tape Vol.1 that featured a sorted range of Kampala’s rap acts from KORA nominated Klear Kut , SONY MUSIC artist, KEKO, B.F.E’s BigTril, G.N.L, Mun.G, Lyrikal Proof among others. A year later, through Don Mc, a Hip Hop artist, Flex met Aethan a young talented record producer who’s worked with most of Uganda’s Hip Hop Artists and helped elevate rap careers, notable of them are; Navio with whom he produced Ngalo, Respect, Tuli Mu Kintu, Nnawuliranga, Dream featuring Chameleone among other songs, G.N.L. with whom he produced Ani Yali Amanyi, Wololo featuring Julianna, The Mith with whom he produced So UG, Fire, Big is Me, among other songs, Lyrical Proof with whom he produced Smile, Mon Mc with whom he produced Ssitidde, Keko ,and a bunch of other Artists.

Jolly while seething with rage. Enygma is a complex walking contradiction. Often delightful and modest but conceited and obnoxious enough to talk of himself in the third person. ENYGMA is an enigma. This dude performs with a facemask, which has kept his identity away from the public. That is how he chooses it to be. His fascination with thug poetry and rap began in primary school. And he is fast becoming one of Kampala's beloved rappers. At this point in his music career, Enygma does not have to struggle to prove anything. He is already getting there, with an endless array of classic beats that rekindle memories of MC Hammer, Tupac Shakur and the like, blurring the lines between rap's underground affinities and modern hip-hop. His album, Enygma of the State, sounds like a conflicting tug-of-war between the Ugandan MCs he features, with him lyrically dominating the whole album as the rest clean up the remains. Although the 16-track album features renowned rappers like Navio, The Mith, Young Nick and Keko, he topples them with his unique lyrics. Hustler's Night, the fifth song on the album, is a better demonstration of Enygma as a younger sibling surpassing the renowned MCs, his older siblings. This gives the album a triumphant and celebratory touch. Corporate Flow featuring Jay Kay and Young Nick is consistent with old school hip-hop beats, commending and praising a corporate in a tie going to the studio after work because he has passion for music. Could he be talking about himself? Well, he is an enigma this one. The other tracks tackle some really serious topics. See the World is an impressive glimpse into urban homicide, other deaths and disasters. Smile of a Child fails to sound out because of a contrived chorus, thanks to Naava, who does it. However, Demise, still featuring Jay Kay, makes a difference with the modern day moving beats of the west coast as it questions MCs for unnecessarily flaunting their fabricated possessions to the innocent listener. Ultimately, Enygma of the State is a very noble attempt at unity, but its variation stalls the project, resulting it into a recording that buckles under the weight of its own pressure. But he won't lose because he has got catchy punchlines any hip-hop fan as keen as I am, will tug onto in appreciating the real MC Enygma is.

Batenga TheMyth likes to consider herself a global DJ. She has been a DJ since 2001, when she accidentally stumbled on decks and had to do a 15-minute crash course on site on how to work the decks at an event in Boston in the USA, what was supposed to be just dinner music turned into playing the whole event by herself, making all sorts of mistakes, but the floor was filled, much as she laughs about it today, that day was a situation of swimming out of the deep end, no better way to gain appreciation for the art than that! She was hooked there on out. Her Djaying has taken her across the United States to Europe, Nairobi, Kampala and Johannesburg. Two years ago she started Mixtape Volumes called Tropical African Heat, those have garnered her popularity amongst Africans in the Diaspora and have opened up more opportunities for her. DJaying to her is an art that constitutes good music selection, understanding your music, understanding your audience, knowing and understanding your craft and your gear and most importantly having FUN!
