The Rwandan DJ and music producer DJ Pius, whose real name is Rickie Rukabuza is a talented artist who began his solo career in 2016 after parting ways with his partner of 7 years, Innocent Aidan Tumaini, popularly known as TKay, and thus disbanding the music group, Two 4 Real.
Since then, he has focused on making good music and has gained quite a following with the release of his scorchers “Wabulila Wa”, “You Got It” and “Tempramido” on which he featured Neza and Mc Galaxy.
“Iwacu Rwanda” is DJ Pius’ debut solo album and it is slated to be released in August. With more than 15 songs on the album, DJ Pius has collaborated with artists from around Africa on some of the tracks, such as Lady Jaydee from Tanzania, Magnom from Ghana, Nigeria’s Solid Star, among others.
Besides local producer Iyzo Pro, who produced “Iwacu”, DJ Pius also worked with Rwanda’s Pastor P and Ugandan top rated producers Paddy Man, Eli Arkhis and Nessim on the much anticipated album.
“Iwacu” is a song about the joy of being a Rwandan and how it feels to be home. This was accentuated in the music video shot by Meddie Saleh which takes viewers through various beautiful places around the country.
