SHALOM RAPPERZ MINISTRY
SHALOM RAPPERZ is a gospel music group of eight siblings who have been called of God, and have set their hearts to serving Him, their musical talent being their greatest inspiration. Throughout life's journey of self discovery, it has always appeared crystal clear that they have been endowed in music and art. The birth of SHALOM RAPPERZ was therefore a mere response to the charge in Luke 12:48, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
SHALOM RAPPERZ is not just a music group; they are a generation of young men and women who are out to impact lives worldwide in what they have been gifted to do, their primary target audience being the youths.
“We are living in a time when, and a place where the words that Jesus spoke make sense most”;
'I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me'. Mathew 25:40
“We have a heart for our brothers and sisters out there who have not had the privilege of knowing Jesus as the Saviour of their souls, a healer, deliverer, comforter and provider. We want to minister the love of Christ to those that need it.
We target the young people on the streets facing various addictions, victims of rejection and those in prisons and on hospital beds. We want to reach out to as many of them as we can, not only giving them the gospel of Jesus Christ, but also helping meet their physical needs the best way we can. As such, we are set to widening our scopes to being an organisation that makes a contribution in changing lives worldwide”.
OUR DREAM / VISION
“Our greatest dream is to put up a centre that will be a home for the homeless youths. We hope to see this centre emerge from being just a meeting place for the destitute, to a place that will offer some shelter and a meal, a place where the young people will be edified and encouraged spiritually. Victims of rejection will not only find acceptance among their friends, but will also learn to live with people, cultivate some love and know that they need one another to grow. We hope to help these young people discover who they are, build their esteem and be able to bring out the best in themselves through engaging them in activities that will develop their talents”.
Gospel Music is their passion, majorly of Hip Hop genre, though they also do a little R&B and Ragga. The music is composed by any member of the group, according to their inspiration.
'Shalom Rapperz' derive their inspiration from day-to-day experiences. They love to take what they see going on around them, look at it from the biblical point of view, and that will be another creation added to their list of compositions.
They do not limit their compositions to only English. Some of their tracks are done in Runyankole/Rukiga, which is their mother-tongue, while others have been done in Kiswahili, Luganda and English with an aim to minister to audiences from as many areas worldwide as possible.

“Music is not our only interest. We believe that using our diverse talents fully, like dance and crafts in God's service will bring us the kind of fulfillment we desire. We believe that God expects back as much as He has placed in us. The bible says in 2 Timothy 1:6 that we should "...Fan into flames the gift of God which is in us..." Every large family is bound to be rich in talent and variety, and this one is no exception. In 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 we see that there are different gifts and services, but the same spirit and God working in all men. That has made us different parts of one body, each one needing the other and all for the same cause - honoring and glorifying God (Vs 14-26)”. ”As a family with singers, dancers, designers and writers, we are not limited. Our dream is to set up a complex ministry covering musical performances, dance, a studio section for audio and video recording and a multimedia/publishing house."
SHALOM RAPPERZ operate under a fully registered company called Crystal Code Ltd. Crystal Code Ltd. is a complex company providing services in Writing, Editing and Publishing, Graphics and Web Design and Video and Audio Production.
When the group was birthed in the year 1999, it was merely a group of family members doing what they loved to do. However, they have since grown to discover that this was a 'call of God', as they have seen Him carry them through life with His supernatural hand. Currently based in Kampala, Uganda, they have staged shows at home and beyond (Nakuru, Nairobi- Kenya),[Dar es salaam-Tanzania]. However, they believe that this is just the beginning, and they are ready to go as far as God will send them.
“Our gratitude goes first to God for seeing us through each step of our lives, and refining us day by day; for giving us an opportunity to be workers in His vineyard. To us, it is the greatest privilege we can ever have. He has made us what we are, and the best we can give back to him is our lives for His service, our entire lives as a sacrifice, holy and acceptable to Him. Then to our dear parents for doing their best to help us utilise our abilities, and believing in us no matter what. We also thank all friends who continually stand with us, especially in prayer. Above all, we hope to see Jesus work miraculously in the young people's lives, as we know it is His desire to do. As such, it is in His hands that we place our vision.
Greetings! I trust that you are celebrating the birth of Christ and the purpose we have to serve Him everyday. Thank you for networking with us and our kingdom building effort. Blessings in the new year and with every step you're taking to bring glory to God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and God's Holy Spirit, our comforter.
