You probably have never heard the word Iwacu Heza. Well, you’re not alone, so have I! Thank God, today, Sunday 27th November 2022, all roads lead to Hilltop Nagguru.
What Is Iwacu Heza?
Iwacu Heza means “our beautiful home/place or our home/ place of great harvest.” according to Edgar Mfite Niyimpa. Now, what on earth does Bafumbira World even mean? You may ask yourself! The association refer to themselves as a non profit organization seeking to better communities. Bafumbira World are the main organizer of the event and this is the 5th Edition. According to the management, part of the proceeds will be used to do community work.
The 2022 event focus is to officially fuse and celebrate the Bafumbira, Banyarwanda and Barundi contemporary ( a blend of traditional and the new ) culture. At Iwacu Heza, you should expect traditional performances ( dances, playing instruments), traditional cuisines and drinks, Kwivuga and pop performances. These will be from Rwandan top artist AFRIQUE and Slenda MC, a top artist from Kisoro. The event goes down today, Sunday 27th November at Hiltop Naguru. Hey, you should put on your dancing shoes as the party is only getting a whole lot hotter! Gates will be open at 12pm, so you may take your time to choose your best outfit.
