Ten years ago, Rwandan musician Gabiro Guitar had a dream of becoming a musical powerhouse in Rwanda. He took part in East Africa’s musical competition Tusker Project Fame (TPF) with the hope of winning and following in the steps of his countryman Alpha Rwirangwira.
Alpha is among the pioneer winners of the TPF show back in the day.
Although Gabiro did not win the TPF competition, it molded him to become a great artist. Today, Gabiro is happy that he chose music as a part of his life.
