Karangwa Lionel, a.k.a Lil G, is the youngest Rwandan rapper who is doing it big in the local music industry. At his tender age of 15, he is already a crowd puller and wherever he performs he keeps revellers on their feet with his dazzling freestyle rap techniques.
Lil G was born March 20th 1994 in Kigali. He started school in 1997 at La Colombiere and later moved on to St. Joseph from where he completed primary school.
The annual street ball which takes place in Kigali was the place where Lil G discovered his enormous talents. It was the street ball held at Petit Stade in December 2007 where during the one week event of discovering local talent that Lil G outshone a host of other young artists to scoop a prize of Rwf50,000 and a one year recording deal with Contact fm studios.
Lil G never looked back from then. Immediately after getting himself a recording deal with Contact Fm, he went straight to business and in 2008 he released ‘In da club’ a song that emphatically announced his arrival in the growing local music industry.
Lil G is considered one of the pioneers of Kinyarwanda rap and he already has scooped himself accolades including the best performing young artist at the salax awards.
