Musician Feffe Busi

Fefe Bussi, original names Frank Mukiiza is one of Uganda’s best known creative rap musicians of our time. The self-baptized ‘Uganda’s Smallest Rapper, is regarded by many as the successor to GNL Zamba seen by his free-flowing rap music.

He was born and raised in Nakulabye a suburb of Kampala in a very humble family. It’s there that he attained his entire primary education at Nakulabye Junior School.

It is at Nakulabye Junior that he met Gilson Wabuyu, a.k.a Gravity Omutujju. Fefe recalls that although they separated while in Secondary, with Fefe going to City Land College Matugga and Wabuyu going to Old Kampala S.S, they would later meet during holidays to chat up and share visions.

He recalls that during those encounters, he revealed to Wabuyu how he had started his music journey under the name Gravity in addition to sharing some of his songs.

To his utter shock, Fefe discovered that his friend had not only stollen his stage name, but he had also claimed and sung the songs he had composed.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Sunrise’ Fahad Kasibante, Fefe reveals his inspiration for music as well as his ambitions.

Qn. What’s the source of beef between you and Gravity?

Ans. For a start, Gravity was my name. Wabuyu Gilson, now known as Gravity Omutujju was a good football player at school. During the holidays, we used to meet and share our life goals. He wanted to be a striker and my dream was in music. I told him I wanted to use Gravity as my stage name but one day his friend from Old Kampala approached us and called him Gravity. He explained that he used to do my songs within his friends and I was okay with it. He later took the name and joined music so I let him be as a friend.

Qn. You spent your first years in the Industry with Gravity. How was the situation without him?

Ans. After we parted company, I went to my room and cried to God. I asked God to lift me so high and it happened. I am grateful Gravity had connected me to so many people and that was a lead for me. I went to the studio, dropped Kakoo and, boom it was a club bang.

Qn. People say you under-rated Fik Fameica in the Who is Who yet you were great friends. Why?

Ans. I don’t think I put Fameica down in my Who is Who song because I don’t have the power of putting them down.

Qn. You are now a famous free styler, did Who is Who inspire the Free Styling in you?

Ans. I always loved the art of free styling. I remember during one of my television interviews, the host tasked us to come up with an instant rap. I used free style and the audience was amazed. This inspired me.

Qn. Should we expect Fefe to release Dance Hall music?

Ans. Well, when God blesses you with football as a talent, he does not choose a number for you to play at the pitch. I am talented and it came from God.

Qn. With what is happening in the Kenzo and Remah world, what is your take on celebrity marriages?

Ans. Before music comes in, we are all human. Just like a lawyer or any other person. What I can say is I was hurt by the Rema-Kenzo situation but I have nothing to do about it.

Qn. Advice to Bobi’s Presidential aspirations

Ans. All I have to say to Bobi Wine is every time you fall, make sure you stand again. It is the same message he gave me some time back when i needed it.
