Rwanda: Dundarstar Talent Search Continues in Kiyovu

On Saturday, the DundarStar talent pitched its tents at Cercle Sportif in Kiyovu, Rugunga, attracting more than fifty youngsters to the music and dance talent contest.

The panel of judges including music producer Washington, Contact FM radio presenter Maceda, KFM radio presenter Ginty and musician Tony took their seats at 8 am to watch the contestants, most of them dance groups, some of which really impressed the judges.

Singer Jean Luke accompanying himself on the guitar managed to convince the judges. "You are one of our favorite contestants because you have showed originality while playing an instrument," Washington said. Maceda agreed, although he advised Jean Luke to put in more energy next time.

There were fifteen groups of dancers, seventeen singers and two contestants who tried to combine singing and dancing. The dance troupe Transformers showed a lot of originality, to the point that the judges asked them to dance one more time.

"We knew we had it, we did our best and will now take the judges' advice to improve and make it better," said the lead dancer.

Another contestant, rapper John Lee, send the crowd in a screaming and clapping frenzy. When one of the judges then challenged him to rap something about the DundarStar Talent Search, he managed so well that he got a resounding "yes" from the panel and a deafening roar from the public.

Others were less fortunate and were dismissed by the judges, yet many were all the more encouraged to do better at one of the following auditions around town.

The next round of the DundarStar Talent Search takes place at Rainbow hotel in Kicukiro next Saturday.
