Burundi’s legendary Zouk maestro Kidum and Rwandan Afro Pop star Confy will join Uganda’s boy band B2C for the upcoming Kigali Jazz Junction (KJJ) slated for February 24 at Kigali Conference and Exhibition Village (KCEV).It will be the second time Kidum, real name Jean-Pierre Nimbona, will grace KJJ stage since headlining the event alongside local gospel music band, Beauty for Ashes in 2017, while Confy will grace the event for the first time as the only local artiste.Confy shared that he was fortunate and lucky to be the only local artiste performing and regards it as a blessing to his rising career.“It will be a great experience for me as a local artiste performing with other international artistes who have been in the industry longer than me, I am sure to learn one or two things from this experience. I have not performed that much at big events but this definitely is a perfect opportunity to put on a show and entertain music lovers to the fullest.The singer added that the February’s event is an edition of love and the event will be full of nothing but love as he will perform his hit love songs that took many by storm.The previous edition took place on June 6, last year after a 2-years break due to the pandemic, and featured French Zouk guru Patrice Sylveste better known as Slai, alongside Uganda-based Rwandan female artiste Lilian Mbabazi.In a recent interview with The New Times Remmy Lubega, Managing Director of RG Consult said that since February is a lovers’ month, they wanted to bring artistes that actually celebrate love through their music. They are good live performers who have made significant impact in East Africa’s music scene that Rwandans would love to have them perform in Kigali. Kidum began his music career as a drummer in Burundi, working with several different bands including Imvumero Band (1986-1992) and Imboneza Band (1992-1993). In 1994, he launched his own band called Electric Power, which lasted for only a year due to the war in Burundi. He fled to Kenya where he joined the Hot Rod Band which he worked with until 2003. He formed his own band; the Boda Boda Band in 2004.Kidumu remains immensely popular in his home country and East Africa with a pool of hit songs like Sherekea and ‘Amosozi y’Urukundo’, ‘Intimba’, ‘Amafaranga’ and ‘Haturudi Nyuma’, which features Ugandan artiste Juliana Kanyomozi, among many more.KJJ has been attracting renowned names in the entertainment industry across Africa since its inception.
