Emmanuel Atem Garang, is a young talented South Sudanese Rapper with a unique flow in his vibes.
Initially from Aweil in South Sudan, Gada was born and raised Ajumani District. He came to Kampala in 2003 at 19 years of age to attend secondary schools at Uganda Martyrs, Lubaga, Crown City and Paris of St. Lawrence.
Speaking to The Sunrise, Gada said that he acquired the passion for music at the age of eight when his mother recorded him singing. His cousin, Canni Jay, added more inspiration for him to join the music industry and he professionally started his career in 2010.
Under the management of Gideon Lanka of Lanka Music, he has produced several hit songs like: Big Daddy; We the Realist; Work Hard; Grind; and, Legacy, as his most prominent songs. “Gideon Lanka is the best manager that one can ever ask for; he made sure that I shoot a very classy video of Big Daddy with Nolton George of NG Films, one of the finest video producers,” he said.
Gada writes and records his music at Stainless records. He adds that he has different talents like; foot ball, swimming, dancing. In music, he sees the music industry problematic, especially for the young artistes, when denied the platform to perform. “Some social media platforms and Djs do not recognize the music of the new talents,” he added.
Gada, who speaks many of the Uganda languages, apart from his native Dinka, hopes to do collabos with Naava Grey, Sheeba and Big Trill, because of their uniqueness; and internationally, with Navy Kenzo and Diamond Platinum.
