Cyril Dally, known under the stage moniker Ugly Dray, isn't just a name in the Ghanaian music scene; he's a force to be reckoned with. Born with a passion for architecture, Cyril's trajectory took a serendipitous turn when the melodies of music beckoned to him. Now, as a second-year student at Koforidua Technical University, Cyril juggles the complexities of academia with the demands of his burgeoning music career. For over half a decade, Ugly Dray has been honing his craft, crafting lyrics that resonate with authenticity and depth. What started as a personal love affair with music quickly transformed into a career path, driven not only by passion but also by the desire to provide for himself and his loved ones. Ugly Dray envisions a future where his influence extends far beyond the confines of his own artistry. With dreams of establishing his own record label, he aims to nurture budding talents, shaping the next generation of musical luminaries. His strengths lie not only in his lyrical prowess but also in his versatility across genres. From the intricate melodies of the keyboard to the raw energy of hip-hop, Ugly Dray thrives on pushing the boundaries of creativity. But beyond the notes and rhythms, Ugly Dray finds his true passion in the profound connection that music fosters. As a self-proclaimed "mouthpiece of the people," he sees his art as a vessel for societal change, a beacon of hope for the disenfranchised. Yet, amidst the accolades and aspirations, Ugly Dray remains grounded in his roots. His favorite part of being a musician isn't the fame or the fortune but rather the ability to inspire and uplift others. Inspired by the likes of Meek Mill, Tory Lanez, and Nasty C, Ugly Dray admires the authenticity and raw talent that these artists bring to the table. And while he dreams of collaborating with Meek Mill one day, his ultimate goal is to leave a lasting legacy of his own. In a Ghanaian music scene brimming with talent yet constrained by limited opportunities, Ugly Dray sees both challenges and opportunities. Through his music, he seeks to amplify the voices of his fellow artists, advocating for greater recognition on the global stage. With tracks like "We Outside," "Would You," and "Rap Never Lose," Ugly Dray has already begun carving out his place in the musical landscape. And with his upcoming project under the wing of the Walboomers label, his journey is only just beginning. In the symphony of life, Ugly Dray stands as a testament to the transformative power of music—a visionary architect, sculpting soundscapes that resonate far beyond the confines of the studio.
