Rosary Robert, known by her stage name Rosa Ree is a Tanzanian female rapper, singer and songwriter.

Career[edit]

Rosa Ree was born in Moshi, Kilimanjaro and studied in Kenya.[1][2] Beginning her career as a singer, social media posts eventually drew the attention of the music industry.[1] In 2015, Rosa Ree was signed as an artist by The Industry Studios, a label headed by Tanzanian rapper and producer Nahreel.[3] Three years later she signed to South African record label Dimo Entertainment.[4][4] In addition to writing her own lyrics and music, she regularly collaborates with other African artists.[2] Since launching her rap career they have included Emtee, Khaligraph Jones, Bill Nass. In early 2019 a collaboration on a song called "Kipopo" with Kenyan rapper Timmy Tdat sparked speculation about a relationship between the two artists, but were denied.[5][6]

She is one of few Tanzanian female rappers due to a cultural understanding of the genre as male-only. In a 2018 interview with Music in Africa she explained that part of what she is trying to accomplish with her music is "something of a revolution because we want to make people believe that females can play a game that is dominated by males."[3] While East African music defines her sound, she has identified women artists from the United Kingdom as influencing diversification of her work.[7]

Resubmitting for another opinion. She's one of the only female rappers in a region where males dominate genre due to sexism and has been covered by multiple outlets.[edit]
