Kwesiga George alias Quex the Lyrical Doctor who is a finalist at Kampala International University – KIU has broken the silence about the exact university he’s studying from, the making of his smash hit “Kachumbali” as well as his personal life while speaking to Campus Bee’s David Mujuni.
Kwesiga is a medical finalist at KIU Ishaka campus currently pursuing a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery. He is currently doing his internship at Jinja Referral Hospital ahead of his graduation slated for next year.
Commonly known by his stage name Quex, the KIU student was confused for a MUST or Nkozi University student, but he has since cleared the air in an exclusive interview with this website.
According to Kwesiga, many people thought he is a scholar at Nkozi University because that’s where his “Kachumbali” hit was appreciated first before blowing up to the whole country.
Kwesiga started his early education from Kabojja Junior School in Kololo and later joined Mugwanya Primary School for primary education. He studied from a couple of schools before joining St. Mary’s Kitende.
The proud medical finalist disclosed that his internship is going fine since people can barely recognize him as he is always covered with a face mask.
“Thank God for the masks, COVID also has something good for us because at least you can wear your mask then no one can recognize you and you can treat with no difficulty.” Kwesiga said said.
On his love for medical studies, Kwesiga revealed that he wanted to be a doctor since childhood but he was at some point destructed by music. He was however redirected by his father to focus on medical studies while treating music as a hobby.
“Basically from the start, you know my parents are Bakiga so they didn’t appreciate this music thing,” Kwesiga confessed.
On balancing books and music, Kwesiga revealed that he put the matter in God’s hands and continued to remain humble. According to him, he is still a down to earth person despite having the biggest song in the country.
“Right now I have the biggest song in the country but I am still that guy from the start who you will meet and then am very humble.” He added.
Despite being unpopular before Kacumbali, Quex has been around for a minute. He reportedly started doing music back in 2007. Quex describes himself more as a song writer than a vocalist.
“I started as a song writer before I actually became an artist, that’s why my lyrics are very good and I wouldn’t consider myself a vocalist, I am just training it these days but when it comes to lyrics that’s where my angle is.” Quex said.
On the making of Kachumbali, Quex disclosed that he recorded the song back in 2019 which took him between 5-10 minutes to write. Apparently, the vibe came through when he had gone to check out a friend’s new studio dubbed “The Booth”.
“I wrote those things between five to ten minutes, so I told them (his friends) I will be back the next day but this song kept playing my head.” Quex narrated.
“I tried to imagine what would happen if my babe was here and then early morning I don’t find her here.” He narrated further.
His love life
According to Quex, he is an imaginative writer who wrote the song when they had just dumped him. Apparently, there is no woman in his life currently and he is a single dude who is chasing his dreams.
“By the way I am an imaginative writer, so I normally do imaginative writing. And the Kachumbali song… by that time by the way they had dumped me for some months then I hit them with a hit, so whoever dumped me, you missed out.” Quex hilariously told off his ex.
“ I am very single, every time you see me just know oyo guy ali single.” He confessed.
Besides music, Quex is a good baker who got the skills from his mother. The KIU finalist has undying love for basketball who at some point considered joining the national team.
