It is a quite a statement sparking debate among public and media too, yet even to others, it sounds a myth, since with the tight nature of the artistic schedule, studies are an exemption, but not to Dream Boys.
Confirmed is how the Rwandan Afro-beat and R&B group, which comprises of members Claude Mujyanama alias TMC and Platini Nemeye (Platini) is back into serious further studies.
Since January 2107, the duo is by most sighted making way into lecture rooms at Jomo Kenyatta University in Kigali, where they both are upgrading. TMC is pursuing a for Masters Degree Project Management, while Platini is taking on Mass Communication.
“There is a great impact we have towards society, which exceeds just entertainment and inspiration, but education adds much more like shaping our talents into real valued professions, while it facilitates us into understanding of the market, and partners we are working with,” explains Claude Mujyanama alias TMC.
Amazing is how the both group members has taken the same decision, at the same time. TMC explains how this is to help them to fully follow and plan accordingly.
The duo has for the last 3 years been branded as Tour de Rwanda Ambassadors, an international cycling competition sponsored by Cogebanque Rwanda while since 2012, they are also Tigo Rwanda’s brand Ambassadors too.
Boosting the Business
TMC explains how the duo’s move is further to inspire more youth into education interest, while it is to further equip the group with more professionalism towards its music business.
The group, which is under the KINA Music management label officially, operates as a Dream Boys Entertainment Limited since 2011. The group aims at more professionalizing its brand in areas of planning, management, marketing and related fields, which they are upgrading in.
“We believe, and have experienced how with education, much more can be attained beyond or on top of the talents we hold,” he explains.
To these artistes, it is still an issue of concern how society hasn’t yet been convinced that an artiste can as well balance career with education, “If people in other professions, who also have extreme working hours, spare time for studies, then why not us Artistes!. Any quality achievement is through toil, which we are also aiming at,” TMC adds.
Since 2008, the Dream Boys has risen to fame through music projects like Magorwa, Baramponda, Wenda Azaza, Urare Aharana, Bucece among other songs, which have earned it several participations through events like Primus Guma Guma Super Star music competition, Salax Music Awards, Pearl of Africa Music Awards among others.
