'I am so happy to be working with such a respected musician in the industry. It shows that my career has already taken the right path. What is left is to give my best and make sure that I get more deals from artistes of this caliber', said Ganza while speaking to The New Times yesterday.

Ganza heads SO Africa Entertainment, a group of artists, graphic designers, entrepreneurs, cinematographers, rappers and singers based in the USA. He is also the man behind videos like US rapper Hoodwink's 'Flawless' and Apha Rwirangira's hit, 'African Swagger'.
