Thirty selected for admission at the first ever music school in the countryThirty students have been selected for admission at the first ever music school in Rwanda, which will open its doors in January 2014.

The initiative, launched by Workforce Development Authority (WDA), is the first of its kind in the country, and opens doors for talented youths to learn music on a profession level.

The thirty were selected purely based on their talents, on anonymous agreement with a three judge-bench that consisted of Mighty Popo, Mike Karangwa and Aimable Twahirwa, all of whom have a vast and rich knowledge in music.

Popo in particular was among the judges that were introduced for the first time at Primus Guma Guma Super Star alongside Burundian star Kidumu.

The school comes as a solution to the problem of untapped talent among the youth which have more often than not gone to waste due to lack of clear orientation.

Speaking to briefly after the selection exercise, Mighty Popo remained optimistic that the music school would go a long way into molding future music stars both in the country and in the region.

Although a total of sixty four had registered for admission, only fifty nine turned up for the finale.
