BORN AND RAISED IN RWANDA, Patrick Cyuzuzo lost his father at an early age. As if that wasnt enough, when he was only five, his mother abandoned him for reasons he hasnt been able to understand up to now. His maternal aunt picked him up and was raised in Huye District. He narrated that life wasnt as easy as it would have been had he had his own biological parents, but he is, nonetheless, thankful for finding a place he could call home. At the age of seven, he joined a kids choir in Sunday school and started singing in the year 2009. This is where his singing talent was nurtured, having been taught more about singing, dancing and music in general. In 2016, the 21-year-old embarked on a solo music career, singing gospel and inspirational/humanitarian music. Unfortunately, his music flopped, and he lost hope of ever singing again. In 2019, when he met some friends who happened to be his music fans, they expressed their concern about him being out of music since for them, they used to enjoy his music. It was like a wake-up call knowing that there were a few people who were moved by my music, and to continue inspiring them, I decided to make a comeback in the music industry, he added. He later decided to re-brand to SEE as well as record new music and has since yielded fruit. He believes his future is still bright and hopes to fulfill his life dreams. Inspiration in music Today, SEE can be described as gospel and inspirational music artist (Independent) bringing music of different genres such as R&B and electronic dance music. His love for music, he said, started way earlier, and it has become part of him. The biggest reason why he decided to do gospel is to spread the message of hope to the hopeless, all together for transformation. I need to give the youth purpose of listening to gospel music by delivering it in their best-preferred genres and strategies, and also let them know that it’s not about how we look or dress up but about the heart and focus, he said. Moving forward, his aspiration is to work with both established and upcoming artists to take the Rwandan music industry to the next level and to give it their best. He also noted that the message from their songs will just go everywhere and the following generation will come in an industry that was cleared early. Earlier this year, he released an EP (extended play) titled “UnBlur”, which means something clear and bright, as a sign of hope. The EP has songs such as “Good for U, Worry not, On My Side, and Hear it Roar”. The main theme of this EP is “Hope and Victory”. I tried to make the songs relatable to all Christians and even those who are not because my objective is to reach out to all people, he said. The EP is available on YouTube Music, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal, Deezer, 7digital, Amazon music and many more. It’s accessible worldwide.
