Check out this short documentary series by Illume Creative Studio featuring Shadrach Kabango AKA Shad K AKA The Old Prince when he came home to Rwanda to perform at the Kigali UP! Music Festival in September. The Rwandan-born, Canadian-raised hip hop artist talks about the power of art to create change in the African context, and even performs a lil freestyle for the folks. We're happy to see this mad lyricist on the streets of Kigali, giving us a unique peep at the city.
