CELEBRITY BIRTHDAY: Western Uganda Music Giant Ray G Turns 26

Western Uganda music icon Reagan Muhairwe aka Ray G is today celebrating his 26th year on earth and his 9th year of making music.

The talented Runyankore singer was born on June 12th 1992 in the Western Uganda District of Bushenyi.

He started singing in 2009 while he was in senior three but rose to fame in 2014 after releasing his hit song Amarari which gained airplay across the country.

He has since released several songs, most of which are love themed.

“Love is very broad and I attempt to cover all its aspects. My choice of lyrics is inspired by things that I see happen in our society,” Ray G recently revealed as quoted by local news website ChimpReports.

Unlike other artistes from Western Uganda who when they rise to fame tend to change to singing English and Luganda, Ray G has maintained his style of singing which will predictably make him hard to dethrone from Western Uganda for a long time.

Currently, he is signed under ‘Awesome Entertainment, a Mbarara based music label.

School Life.

Ray G completed high school in 2012 but couldn’t continue to University since his parents couldn’t afford to pay, yet his siblings were still in lower classes.

He decided to take a break from school and concentrate more on music which would later help him afford his University tuition.

Ray G is currently ranked among the top musicians in the country and is arguably Western Uganda’s biggest.

°From all of us at #MTNPulse, Happy birthday Ray G.
