Pius, the DJ with political ambitions
In the run up to the release of their debut album, ‘Nyumva’ (Listen to Me), which is set to tilt Two4Real further towards mainstream success, Collins Mwai caught up with DJ Pius – one half of the twosome that treated us to the rib-tickling ‘Kanda Amazi’ – to quiz him on his political aspirations and how he juggles disc-jockeying, music and books…Tell us about your childhood…I was born and bred in Mbarara, western Uganda. I grew up in a very good environment, believe me. I did most of my schooling in Uganda before I moved to Rwanda to join Lycee de Kigali for the final years of my high school. I am lucky to have attended good schools in Uganda. It reflects on who I am today. I was greatly influenced by one of my former teachers who was very good at drama and the arts in general.
