Rey Sapienz

Born and raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo, he first got in touch with the musical world in church choir. By age 12 he started performing as a rapper for the "Independence day of Congo". In 2002 he formed a band with Jay Dragon aka Hallyson with whom he would rap on Congolese soukous and perform in local shows. Rey was always involved with his community, and regularly organized writing workshops in youth centres. In 2012 after completing his studies, he travelled to Uganda for a collaboration with various producers from Kampala. As the war didn't make it impossible for him to return to Congo, Rey Sapienz extended his stay in Uganda. Here he co-founded the Hakuna Kulala Label alongside Arlen Dilsizian and Derek Debru. In June 2017 he self taught music production and within a year, released his first EP "HAKUNA KULALA". Currently he is the artist liaison within Hakuna Kulala and also gives Ableton workshops to emerging new producers of Kampala.
He is part of the duo Poko Poko with Congolese composer .
