Who is DOPE FLOW Ke'Mo? Well, Kampala native Dope Flow Ke'mo does not remember a time when music and entertaining was not part of his life. In fact, hes been at it for ages. From a young child staging impromptu performances for family and friends in the family living room, with either his 4 elder sisters or friends, to later wing dancing and rapping competition in school, Dope Flow Ke'Mos dream of musical stardom is slowly but surely being. Growing up in an African family, Dope Flow Ke'Mo expressed his desire to be on stage from an early age. He credits his determination to pursue this to the full support of his family.

Kelly and The Isley Brothers to hip-hop impresarios like Timbaland, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. All these have inspired him to be a musician capable of composing music from any genre. But he found his niche mainly in rap. A thing he says he was introduced to by his high school buddy Sadjiwa Odallah.

His penchant for dancing & rhyme was evident and he gave his first public performance in sixth grade, at International School of Tanganyika, Lower School, kicking Vanilla Ice rhymes for class mates during at his class teaches request. Later on, his rhyme skill came to the fore in his high school years, as he hang with Sadjiwa (who he credits as his mentor) and members for a school rap group named No Name. During this time he was influenced by the gangster rap era of Ice T, N.W.A, the late TuPac and the Dogg Pound Gangstaz and Snoop Dogg.
