Knowless and Ishimwe in London for holiday
While others are crying about January blues and counting down the days to payday, singer Knowless Butera and her husband Clement Ishimwe are currently having the time of their lives in England.
The two reportedly left the country a few days ago, with their baby girl for a family vacation. However, critics will always have something to say, with some asking why they chose to go for a holiday during winter and not summer. We are sure they have their reasons.
Knowless and her longtime music manager and producer, Ishimwe, got married last year after a five-year-long courtship.
The couple is now on holiday and fans of the singer are wondering when she will return to the studio. The buzz on social media is that Knowless may be taking time off music to focus on motherhood, which is a great thing. But for her loyal fans, the wait is torture, and people are beginning to speculate that it might be a while before the Primus GumaGuma Season 5 winner hits the stage. We don’t know, but we will definitely keep an ear out for any news of new music from the songstress.
