Thank you Jon, I felt like I owe you the echo your dreams resonated in me:
What I do is Who I am
Who lights a lamp and hides it under a basket?
I’ve worked in the shades of exposure.
Somewhere within, I knew the time would come to get out in the open. Somewhere within, I knew the shades of gratification were a ‘rite de passage’, a school of mastership.
Full cycle I’ve come.
Seven years have gone by since I adopted the pseudonym of Rudah King.
Rudah King is derived from Rudakenga which literally means “the unshakable” in my mother tongue.
Rudakenga was my grandfather. A chief of the Goyi clan from the Ruhengeri mountains in Rwanda.
Rudakenga went from the hills of a small country in eastern Africa, to become a globetrotter, a man of his times, a cosmopolitan.
I am Rwandan, I am French, I am human : I am Rudakenga.
I’ve been blessed with countless graces among which the gift for languages and the verbal power of my ancestors, the Bantus!
I am a Bantu lyricist. My life purpose is to contribute to humanity’s nobility.
