“You mean to say , Gorillas have names too?” I was asked
“With 99% of our DNA , they surely do.” I answered.
Our conversation had sparked from a prior phone conversation I had had with the amazing Hope Azeda, the founder of Masharika Theater Company in Rwanda . She’d wanted to inquire whether Afroman Spice was available to perform on the 26th of August at the Nwita Nzina Gala. “Definitely, yes.” I answered
Earlier in May I had performed at the “Jewels of the jungle”, an exhibition at the Sheraton Kampala hotel, to raise funds to build a medical facility for the chimpanzees at the sanctuary, so be a part of another somewhat similar event was epic.
Gorillas surely do have a home in Rwanda. They are purely loved, protected and celebrated. We are glad to have been a part of this prestigious event amounting to the Gorilla naming event in September.
We have enjoyed every bit of Kigali, yet I still believe much still waits to be explored. Our hosts were amazing. Working with the beautiful Angel and Jamo and Didiye was great too.
We learnt a lot, had fun, performed to our best and now we are back to Kampala….. glad to be back,
