“Also, we as Rwandan have developed a culture of always getting hyped by the international artists and deejays and we always end up forgetting that our artistes have potential to entertain us if we support them, and give our young talents a chance, so we want to end the “question: Which artist is coming this summer?”, Christian Intwari, founder of Sick City Entertainment told The New Times.
