Rwanda’s entertainment industry keeps growing at a high pace and more than ever, showbiz trends are dominating talks not only in Rwanda but globally. From Platini’s broken marriage which made rounds last week, to Moses Turahirwa’s arrest which left Rwandans talking, The New Times highlights the most trending news of last week. Moshions’ Turahirwa arrested for drug abuse, forgery Moses Turahirwa, the brains behind Moshions, a top fashion house in Rwanda, is in jail for alleged drug abuse and document forgery. Turahirwa, who identifies himself as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, is one of the best fashion designers in Rwanda who designs for top celebrities around the world. His arrest comes after Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) revealed that it is carrying out an investigation on the renowned fashion designer for suspected document forgery. The RIB spokesperson, Thierry Murangira, recently told The New Times that Turahirwa is currently under arrest on allegations of forgery after he posted a photo of his passport claiming that it was issued with his preferred gender of ‘female’. Drug abuse has been also added to the crimes Turahirwa is being accused of after Rwanda Forensic Laboratory tests confirmed that he illegally used cannabis. He risks spending the next seven years in jail if proved guilty. Platini up in arms with wife Last week, all the talks in town were about singer Platini’s broken marriage which many say was sparked by the fact that he just found out that he is not the biological father of his two-year-old daughter. Different reports indicate that the famous couple is no longer living together and that the wife has already left the house with her daughter whose father is unknown to the public. It is also said that Platini has DNA evidence that he is not biologically related to his daughter. The two got married in 2021. Safi legally divorces wife Safi Madiba and his Canada based Rwandan wife Judith Nyonizera are legally divorced as confirmed by the couple, which separated three years ago. The two wedded on October 1, 2017, and later reunited in Canada where Safi relocated to live with his wife after parting ways with Urban Boys. After moving to Canada, it was reported by different media houses that the two had separated, with many saying that Safi used Nyonizera to get Canadian nationality. It was also said that Nyonizera confiscated Safi Madiba’s passport so that he couldn’t leave Canada. The couple’s journey ended last week after they illegally divorced. Judith Niyonizera shared that she has a new boyfriend and that they are planning to tie the knot soon. Miss Meghan, Lilian and Elsa attend Prince Kid’s appeal trial Miss Rwanda 2018 Lilian Iradukunda and Miss Rwanda 2019 Meghan Nimwiza were spotted during Prince Kid’s appeal trial. The duo came to court with Miss Rwanda 2016 Elsa who is married to Prince Kid, the brains behind Inspiration Back Up which organised Miss Rwanda competition. Miss Meghan coming to court attracted public’s attention because different reports indicated that she was among Miss Rwanda participants who accused Prince Kid of sexual harassment. The two attending Prince Kid’s appeal trial is a sign that they are on his side. Prince Kid’s appeal verdict is set for June 30. Rwandan songs banned in Burundi saga On April 24, National Communication Council of Burundi known as CNC announced the banning of 33 songs including some that featured Rwandan artistes. The 33 banned songs include those that featured Rwandan artistes like 'Ikinyafu' by Bruce Melodie and Kenny Sol, 'My Boo' by Afrique, ‘Mpamagara' by Pizzo John and Davis D, Yvan Muziki’s 'Nyash' featuring DJ Pius, among others. The move to ban the songs received heavy backlash from Rwandan music lovers who described the act as a way of putting down Rwandan music which is currently the most streamed and played on airwaves of Burundi. “It’s CNC’s right to ban our songs but if it's a way to turn down our music, they will never succeed. Our music is now streamed on all major platforms and can’t be easily stopped by such acts,” Davis D, one of the artistes with banned songs in Burundi said, reacting to the saga.
