We Digest News to tell the Truth

We do not work for fame-Dudu T. Niyukuri in exclusive interview.

Niyukuri Theophile, known as Dudu, is a Burundian gospel artist with some linkage to Rwanda. He has so many songs which are being utilized in churches all over the World during Praise and Worship time. In Q&A interview with Top Africa News, he revealed what he is doing after a while.
Here are the excerpts of the Interview:
(Note this: TAN stands for Top Africa News)

TAN: It’s been around four years without hearing from you, especially here in Rwanda. Where were you?
DUDU: I’ve been quiet in Rwanda for sometimes because:
I was doing tours elsewhere, if you check my social media you will realize that I’ve been working in Kenya for two years.


TAN: What are you planning now?
DUDU: For now we are busy promoting my new album called Uri Mwiza and see where it goes.


TAN: Last four years, Burundian gospel industry was leading in the region, and you are among people who were active together with your fellow artists (Fortran, Fabrice&Maya,…) So nowadays you all seem to be quiet. Is there anything wrong with gospel industry in Burundi?
DUDU: Personally I live in Nairobi with my family. I am not in a position where by I can give a good answer to that. But from what I see, it seems to me that all well-known Burundian artists are still working each one where he is located. And again new artist are rising in Burundi.


TAN: You have released YARACIYE INZIRA, and before you did MPA KU MAZI, MU MARASO YAWE YESU. Are you done with your album or there are other songs coming?
DUDU: Not only new songs are coming but a whole album of 12 songs is coming out before the end of this month.


TAN: When can we expect your concert in Rwanda?
DUDU: At the moment we are promoting the new album we have not planned any tour. But someone decides to organize a show we would gladly answer.


TAN: You did a collabo with Patient Bizimana and Serge, any other collabo with Rwandan artist or anyone else?
DUDU: Not for the moment. None in perspective.


TAN: You are working on your second album, but you have too many songs out. This should be your fourth album instead of being the second, if I’m not wrong.
DUDU: We take our time to explore and make every song count. We spend a lot on a song so it has to bear fruits. Why rush?
The thing is, we do not work for fame. Our first mission is to put tools in the hands of the Holy Spirit to be used for reaching people. Second mission is to give to the body of Christ tools they can use to worship our Father in heaven. So we make every song counts.


TAN: What about Stand for Jesus concerts, do you plan them again or not?
DUDU: Times and seasons come and go. It might come or not. We follow the leading from The Man upstairs


TAN: You have too many fans and supporters in Rwanda, is there any message you have for them?
DUDU: My message to them, especially in this season where by in the whole of Rwanda and across the world, we remember the victims of the horrible genocide done against the Tutsis in Rwanda, I would like first to show my empathy and to comfort everyone that was affected by this. This should never happen again in Rwanda or anywhere. None gives to another the right to live. None should kill anyone because of how he was born. It’s craziness.
And secondly I would like to tell everyone in Rwanda that in this moments where we remember the Passover where Jesus made a way to restoration, may we, Rwandans, be restored a 100 fold. May the blood of Jesus heal every wound, may Jesus restore Joy in every city on this territory.
My recent release is called Yaraciye Inzira which means He made a way may God make a way for my people in Rwanda and elsewhere forever. Amen.
