Tell us about this series you acted in as Tunga that everyone is talking about?
Oh yeah! kkkkk so let me just say Tunga was my breakthrough in this industry that’s the first movie, me being the main character and I also carry the name of the series, so Tunga is about the first young man who was brave and he was the first young man who fought for women’s rights to choose whom they want to marry not being forced like (musengabere). So, the story is based on this guy trying to change the world to be a better one though it wasn’t easy by that time you know (pasichigare).

Passion, Persistence, and Patience that’s the only way to go.
What has kept you going in this tough and hard season?
I will repeat, Passion Persistence and Patience kept me going (hope and prayers still work in my life) God is giving me strength.
