Shanel, is currently in Belgium, for a film shoot and a concert scheduled to take place this weekend, in Brussels.
The 23-year-old has starred major roles in two Rwanda films; ‘Le Jour Où Dieu est Parti en Voyage’, produced by Artemis and Mugho Productions and ‘Long Coat’, by Edward Bamporiki in 2009.
