MC Yallah

Profile

MC Yallah, Yallah Gaudencia Mbidde, was born in Kenya and grew up in Uganda, has been in the East African underground hip-hop scene for nearly twenty years. On stage, she delivers a high energy performance and stands out with a bright, colourful aesthetic. As a self-described ‘conscious rapper', her content draws from real-life experiences and social observations. But she doesn't shy away from calling out the bullshit and asserting her hard-earned position in Uganda. What really sets MC Yallah apart is her signature style: a rapid, tightly controlled flow delivered in one or more of four languages (Kiswahili, Luganda, English and Luo).
