Rosary Robert, known by her stage name Rosa Ree is a Tanzanian female rapper, singer and songwriter.
Rosa Ree was born in Moshi, Kilimanjaro and studied in Kenya. Beginning her career as a singer, social media posts eventually drew the attention of the music industry. In 2015, Rosa Ree was signed as an artist by The Industry Studios, a label headed by Tanzanian rapper and producer Nahreel. Three years later she signed to South African record label Dimo Entertainment. In addition to writing her own lyrics and music, she regularly collaborates with other African artists. 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.
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." While East African music defines her sound, she has identified women artists from the United Kingdom as influencing diversification of her work.

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.
