The event dubbed ‘Talent Show Awards’ will take place on Friday May 21, at Laico Umubano Hotel in Kacyiru.
Speaking to The New Times, the founder of Kubana Events, Aimable Kubana explained that this year’s talent show will mainly focus on sports and dance, however, The Brothers—a local music group will present their newly released album ‘Impinduka’ (Revolution).
