If there is something that François Nsengiyumva, commonly known as ‘Igisupusupu’, has figured out, you cannot rest on your laurels if you want to remain relevant in the showbiz industry.

The 41-year-old singer has outed his new song ‘Rwagitima’ complete with a video, the 3rd song he has released since his breakout earlier this year with ‘Mariya Jeanne’.

The over 4 minute song was published by Nsengiyumva’s producer and mentor Alain Muku, stating that it was an ‘Umuganura’ gift to Rwandans.

‘Rwagitima’ is one of the songs Nsengiyumva used to perform in markets and gatherings in his home district of Gatsibo when he was still singing for as little as Rwf100. The video was recorded in his home district in Eastern Province.

In less than 24hrs, the song was closing in on 100,000 views and more than 500 comments, with many appreciating the workmanship of the sensational singer.

Though the ‘Icange Mukobwa’ singer has seemingly upgraded his look to a more sharp modern look in the  video of the catchy tune, he maintains his traditional instrument ‘Umuduri’ which has since become his trademark.

 Nsengiyumva has proved to be one of the most loved Rwandan artistes in recent months since his breakthrough song “Mariya Jeanne”. His performances in Iwacu Muzika festival and the City of Kigali Liberation concert stirred crowds.
