After mastering the guitar and singing in general, Masamba became convinced that he had a talent which needed to be abundantly exploited.
As his music career grew, Masamba worked harder to compose his own songs and stage performances. It was around this time that he met Rwanda’s best traditional artists like Jean Paul Samputu who also helped and inspired him to the world of music.
His immediate dream was to be able to sing in Kiswahili and some South African languages.
"I relate with South Africans a lot, because we share the same political history."
Masamba thereafter managed to venture into the Belgium’s entertainment industry where he had wonderful performances.
