Gatsinzi, aka Koudou is also the  singer of  Iwacu heza, a song about Rwanda and Africa.

The track is an expression of the true beauty of Rwanda and Africa in general. The mellow afrobeat track churned out in a true African style was written by Koudou and recorded by Balik from BMCG.


The song with English, French and Kinyarwanda lyrics talks about a young African man dreaming to go to Europe and a young lady living in Europe but missing her motherland.

“The reason of language mixture is to reach out to a big number of people outside Rwanda,” says Koudou. His collaboration with Shannel, who is still pursuing her musical studies in France, is the first of his new album. Apart from working on his second album, Kodou is also shooting new videos.
