“In business people should always focus on which brand they can use to sell their goods and services. When I started running music as a business years ago in Uganda my brand was “Cobra Production Limited” so from that time I never changed the name because it is a money-making name.”
Eugene Cobra, Businessman in Kigali City.
“A name impacts your life. Various believers they know very well that God used fire as one of the miracles to his people and for scientists they believe that fire can generate light so I chose the name “Fireman” because I wanted my light to shine among people.”

“Parents name their babies because of what happened or what they wish would happen to them. But as one grows up, they can decide on what to do with their lives in order to reach their goals. If changing a name can economically impact your life, then why can’t you change it?”

“At home they used to call me Paccy so by the time I joined the music industry I had to use this name because it made it easier for me to identify with my songs and fans unlike my real names.”
Pacifique Uzaberumwana, alias Paccy, Local artist.
“When your name is quite different it makes you equally different. Sometimes people fall in love with a name that is loved by fans. Selecting or even modifying a new name should come with benefits.”

Butera, alias Knowless, Local artist.
