Back in action: Spyda MC has recently risen to prominence on the Ugandan music scene, gaining widespread attention after a video showcasing his exceptional hip-hop skills went viral on social media. But Spyda is not new to hip hop. The artiste can be identified as an underground artiste and has been doing his craft for more than 10 years now.

“Werabidde esaawa ne naku byo bibala” is one of the most captivating lines in Spyda MC’s trending song Abantu Mukisa and to him, the line is literally meant to mean that it is all about time and hope in whatever man does.

Those who have known Spyda MC, who has been on the hip hop scene for nearly 10 years, can attest to the fact that perhaps it was about time for music lovers to get caught in the web of his amazing lyrics.

Giovanni Kiyingi, a Ugandan musician based in Phoenix Arizona-USA shares that Spyda is a tale of how patience and hope can unleash amazing talent in the creative sector.

Giovanni, who also recorded a song with Spyda, shares that besides being known for his captivating hip hop cyphers, Spyda is an amazing creative.

His works have been visible at most festival platforms, especially those in line with underground hip hop and Bayimba Festival of Music and Arts.

Whereas his works have for years been inclined to underground arts group dubbed Nilotika Cultural Ensemble, this has not shadowed his incredible talent that is characterised by powerful lyrics that embody stories that advocate for hope and social change. He shares that he is glued to creating music that speaks to the people.

“The point is to create and when the time comes, your door will be opened. The youth should believe in our craft and bank on time other than rushing to make mistakes,” Spyda MC explains.

He shares that he is a victim of his lifestyle that is associated to rejection by society, adding that for children born and raised in ghettos, society usually waits for someone to break through to earn public approval.

Spyda MC has recently risen to prominence on the Ugandan music scene, gaining widespread attention after a video showcasing his exceptional hip-hop skills went viral on social media.

Previously an underground artiste, Spyda MC hails from the complexities of life in the ghetto, making his journey to fame all the more remarkable.
