  • Muzehe rero nifuzaga ko mwanganiriza ku mateka y’u Rwanda mbere y’ubwigenge… ubwo nukuvuga ku buzima bwanyu mbere ya 1960. Icyo nifuza kumenya cyane ni ibijyanye n’ubwiru. Ese ubundi ubwiru bisobanura iki? Umwiru ni muntu ki?
  • Ubwiru ni ijambo ry’ikinyarwanda risobanura ibanga. Umwiru ni umuntu wabikaga amabanga y’ibwami. Ntawagiraga abiru uretse umwami we nyine.
  • Nigeze kumva ko abiru bakomokaga mu bwoko bw’abatsobe, ni byo?
  • Bakomokogaga mu Bakobwa uretse ko n’abandi bashoboraga kuba abiru.
  • Abakobwa?
  • Oya Abakobwa [soma Abâkoobwa]
  • Abakobwa se ntibabaga muri ya moko numva? Abasinga, abanyiginya…
  • Oya ni igisekuruza. Ntabwo ari ubwoko.
  • Bakomoka kuri nde?
  • Kwa Ndoli, kwa Ndoba.
  • Namenye ko wabaye umwiru, uri umukobwa rero?
  • Yego.
  • Ese umuntu yahindukaga umwiru ate? Ni ibivukanwa?
  • Oya! Uretse umwami ubivukana ibindi ni imirimo.
  • Wambwira ku mirimo yanyu nk’umwiru?
  • Naragiraga inka. Umwiru yari umuntu nk’abandi. Hari igihe yabaga yaragabiwe umusozi cyangwa inka n’umwami naho ubundi yashakisha imibereho ngo atunge umuryango we nk’abandi.
  • Hari amazina y’abandi biru wambwira?
  • Ndabibuka se? Hari umutware witwaga Kayumba wigeze kuba shefu mu Kabagari… Kayumba yari yarabwiwe na Rudahigwa ko Ndahindurwa ari we uzima. Igihe kigeze bati tubwire umwami. Avuga ko ari Kigeli.
  • Kayumba ka Rubibi? Aho ntiwasanga ari sogokuruza?
  • Oya. Ni undi. Yatwaraga i Bumbogo. Yari umutsobe.
  • Hari aho nasomye ku bijyanye n’intambara yo ku Rucunshu ko babanje kwica abiru.
  • Oya. Abega n’Abayiginya baricanye. Abiru bari ku ruhande rwa Rutarindwa barapfuye. Abayobotse Musinga ntibapfa.
  • Numva ngo wabaye adiministarteri i bwami? Ese ibiro byabagamo abakozi bangahe? Imirimo yawe yari iyihe?
  • Icyo gihe twari twaraganjwe mwana wa. Abakozi bari bake. Imirimo yari nk’uko usanga inzego zitandukanye ziriho ubu. Habaga umwami, hakaba abashefu, abasushefu bikagera ku rugo aho umugabo yari ashinzwe gushakira umuryango we imibereho yaronka bikamenywa n’umugore. Erega u Rwanda rwa kera rwari rukomeye mbere y’abazungu. Rwari rufite imiyoborere yarwo nk’uko muri Kongo, Ubugande n’ahandi hose bari bafite uburyo babayeho ukwabo. Abanyarwanda bagiraga umuco umwe, bakabandwa, bagaterekera…
  • Ese kubandwa no guterekera bitandukaniye he?
  • Kubandwa ni nko kubatizwa. Guterekera ni ya migenzo yo kwambaza abakurambere, gutanga ibitambo…
  • Numva ngo Musinga yarabyemeraga cyane.
  • Musinga bamucira i Kamembe nari nkiri muto
  • Wavutse ryari?
  • Mu 1922
  • Ukomoka he?
  • Hari i Nyanza, hafi yo kwa Rudahigwa ho gatoya.
  • i Mwima?
  • Eeeh mu Rukari aho.
  • Waje kwiga?
  • Ibyo se ko byaje nyuma…
  • Iyo umwiru yamenaga amabanga y’ibwami byangenda bite?
  • Yaricwaga! None se ko yabaga yaranyohe igihango arahira ko atazigera amena ibanga keretse umwami amuhaye uruhushya akanamubwira uwo azaribwira. Uwo akitwa umwiru w’ibwami.
  • Ese ubundi igihango ni iki?
  • Ni ibintu by’imiti bavugutaga umuntu akanywa akavuga ko namena ibanga kizamwica.
  • Nari nzi ko ari kwa kundi abantu bikebaga bakanywa amaraso…
  • Ibyo ni ukunywana.
  • Abantu bamenyaga ko kanaka ari umwiru se?
  • Yego.
  • Ubwo se nta bantu wenda bamushakishaga bashaka amabanga wenda…
  • Umva re! Cyane. Siyo mpamvu yanywaga igihango se!
  • Hari uwo cyishe se?
  • Ni nka kwa kundi abantu bizera Imana bakumva ko nibakora nabi bazajya i kuzimu.
  • Ko wabaye umugaragu wa Rudahigwa na Kigeli, ubona ari nde wari ufite ubwenge kurusha undi?
  • Bose bari babufite. Ntibari abami b’u Rwanda se?
  • Hari amabanga bagusigiye ngo uzatubwire se?
  • Nyakubwire ngo bazuke se? Barapfuye. Ngiryo ibanga! Umva Kigeli twarabanye mujyana muri Amerika muri 1992, tuba i Burayi turazenguruka ejo bundi njya gucyura umugogo. Ibyabo byajyanye nabo.
  • Nta bandi biru bariho se?
  • Simbizi. Ubwiru se barabuzi? Babanye n’umwami se?
  •  Hanyuma wambwira uko amadini yadutse mu Rwanda, nuko wahisemo kuba umudive aho kuba umugaturika?
  • Keretse uje ukamara icyumweru ni bwo wabyumva neza. Ngo mpitamo? Ntacyo twahisemo, twaraganjwe, turategekwa turayoboka umuco ucika utyo. Abazungu baje ku bwa Rwabugili. Baza bakuraho ibyacu bashyiraho ibyabo. Abanyarwanda bacaga umugani ngo “Mwimuke cyangwa umuyoboke!” naho ubundi arakwica. Ntitwari tuzi guhunga. Ubwo twarayobotse.
  • Ntabakomeje kubikora bwihishwa se?
  • Ntabo. None ko uwabikomezaga abazungu bamufungaga, bakamwica urumva ari nde wari kubikomeza?
  • Rudahigwa atanga u Rwanda akaruha Kristu, ngo abanyarwanda bakoze ibirori by’iminsi itatu. Numva ari nkaho bishimiye kuba akirisitu.
  • Umva! Twari twaraganjwe. Rudahigwa aha u Rwanda Kristu yabikoze abitegetswe n’abazungu. Ntacyo twahisemo. Duheruka ubwigenge abazungu bataraza. Bagira batya bashyiraho Kayibanda, abatutsi batangira kuvuga igikiga kandi mbere yaho abahutu bifuzaga kuvuga nk’abatutsi. Abantu batangira kwiga igifaransa, ubu ni icyongereza none byose byarivanze. Ugasanga uriya Rucagu… hari imipira mbona yanditseho ngo intore zatojwe… intore ntitozwa irigishwa. Hatozwa inka, inkoko, ingagi. Waje umbaza iby’u Rwanda rwa kera, byari ibihimbano! Kubandwa no guterekera byari ukwihimbira ariko icyo nshimira abakera nuko bavugashaga ukuri. Mu byo bakoraga byose bageraga aho bavuga bati “Ni ah’Imana.” Umuntu akarwara, bagakora ibyo bakora babona agiye gupfa bati “Ni ah’Imana.” Abanyarwanda bageze aho iy mana bayita abana babo. Ngo “Hatangimana, Harerimana…”
  • Nari nzi ko ari abahutu bayitaga abana babo gusa
  • Oya. Abanyarwanda baba abahutu, abatutsi, abatwa bitwaga ayo mazina nk’uko abazungu bita ababo za “Dieudonné.” Uzi ko n’abagiriki bazwi ho kuba abantu ba mbere batekerezaga… ni bo babyikaga bagatekereza bati ese ko izuba rirasira hino rikarengera hirya buri munsi amasaha adahinduka ni bite? Bageze aho bibaza ku mana, bashinga ahantu ho gusengera bati aha ni ah’Imana itazwi. Iyo mana abanyarwanda bavugaga batazi, iyo yari yarayobeye abagiriki narayimenye. Nta handi iri hatari muri Bibiriya.
  • Ariko Bibiriya yazanywe n’abo bazungu batuganje. Nibwira ko Rudahigwa aha u Rwanda Kristu Mwami hari amasezerano yashyizweho umukono na kiriziya abaha ubutaka butari buto mu gihugu dore ko batunze bwinshi muri Afurika. Nta uyobewe ko Vatican ari imbaraga za politike.
  • Umva wivanga administration n’Imana. Amasezerano y’iki? Abazungu barategekaga, tukayoboka. Icyo nkubwira ni uko n’abanyarwanda bari bazi ko hejuru y’umwami hari imbaraga zirenze. Bati “Nyakugirimana.” Bari bazi ko n’umwami abeshejweho n’iyo mana. Bamwe bati ni Mungu, abandi bayita Dieu, abanyamerika bati ni God, abagande bati ni Katonda.
  • Ese abanyarwanda ntibyababereye urujijo kuba icyo bumvaga ko ari Imana cyaje gifite indi sura?
  • Ndakubwira ko twarozwe. Twigishishwe nabi. Abazungu baraturoze natwe turarogana. Hari benshi nayobeje mu gihe cy’imywaka 60 mbabwira ibitari byo nibwira ko ari ukuri.
  • Ni iki wababwiraga?
  • Ko Imana yapfuye. Imana irapfa se? Yhuuuuu!! Ubu namenye ukuri abatega isi batazi. Ubu ndi hejuru ya ba Rudahigwa, Kigeli, Kagame, Trump… Ndi hafi y’Imana. Ubu ni ko kuri nigisha.
  • Ibyo ari byo byose imyizere ya kera yari igamije icyiza.
  • Uvuze ikintu cyiza. Yari igamije icyiza ariko harimo ikibi. Hari umukrisitu utifuza kudakora icyaha se? Hanyuma se? Ntibirangira yacumuye?
  • Ubu ntugikora icyaha?
  • Keretse iyo ngomye. Ariko namenye aho ugera kugira ngo ntukore icyaha.
  • Waje umbaza ibya kera, ariko banza umenye amateka y’isi n’ibindi byose uzabimenya. Imana yaremye adamu na Eva, satani irabashuka baracumura, babyara ibigoryi. Aho ni ho byapfiriye.
  • Satani ntiyaremwe n’Imana se?
  • Ibyo birakurenze. Ahubwo hari ukuntu yacengeye ijijisha abantu ubu bazi ko umuntu yaturutse ku mpunyu. Ariko uranyumvira abazungu di?
  • Nibwira ko niba ari uko nabo ari ho bakomoka. Uretse ko nzi ko abanyarwanda ba kera bizeraga ukundi. Hari ibyo numvise bita ibimanuka…
  • Ni ibihimbano! Ibyo bya Gihanga… byo ni ibihimbano. Ariko ibihimbano byabo nk’uko n’abandi bihimbiye ibyabo. Ukuri kuri muri Bibiliya gusa.
  • Ariko hari ibindi bitabo bitari…
  • Ni ibihimbano!! Ibindi byose ni imvange! Njye naravanguye.
  • Nganga… nakwigishije nawe genda usangize bagenzi ibyo wize.
  • Murakoze cyane.

La Voi(e)x La Légende

lvdll“My next music project. An EP perhaps.”
I posted this April last year. I am convinced now is the time. And it’s going to be an album. An album about people, cultures, traditions and more that I hope to discover on the way.
The album will come with a book or rather the music CD will be in the book’s pocket.
I have a feeling it’s going to take more than a year to complete. I’m not in a rush anymore. Entre2 was a draft. I want to spend more time on this. So if I become less present on your walls or stweets, you know I’m offline working.
I might start the first line on the book today.
Thank you my people for being part of the journey. I appreciate your generosity and attention. Take care of yourselves.
1Key, 1Love

Eric 1Key, an artist who represents a modern but complicated Rwanda

Published on 22 November 2016 by Ceri Whatley for True Africa

When Ceri and I met me in 2015 for the first time, we had about a 5-hour interview. It was so fluid that I forgot it was an interview. Ever since she has shown lots of interest in my work digging between the lines to decipher hidden messages,and shed light into the world with her beautiful quill. Here, she curated my work on True Africa.

“There isn’t a lot of live music in Rwanda. A lot of artists prefer playback as it’s an easy shortcut to performances. It costs more to organise live performances, especially when artists are so often paid in “exposure” instead of money’. Despite Kigali’s restrictive noise pollution regulations, and severe lack of investment in the arts, 1Key regularly entertains crowds at Spoken Word Rwanda. He has performed at Rwanda’s annual KigaliUp! Festival and has, more recently, organised a series of live shows: the #Expericment.

“His outlook reflects the new Kigali today, where entwined linguistic and cultural influences feed into an increasingly diverse and interesting arts scene.”

“1Key addresses subjects such as cosmopolitanism, patriotism, Pan-Africanism, Black Power, and Democracy.”

Journal is a simple, open video streaming platform that celebrates arts, culture, innovation and storytelling. When I was contacted by the team to write a piece in Kinyarwanda about the importance of storytelling, it hit me that every time one mentions Rwanda to a foreigner, the discussion begins with the genocide. Yet we have had great history embedded in poetry for centuries. I wanted to remind that. Too bad I can’t embed the video in the post but it’s on their page https://www.journal.rw/eric-1key/

As for the poem, here you go

FATA IKARMUMbere y’umwaduko w’inyandiko
Nta tushi nta rubaho
Abenge bataritwa inkandagirabitabo
Umwera uva ibukuru butari ibuzungu
Imana itaraba mungu
Kiriziya itarigabira kirazira
Abatware bataratangira gutangira i mahanga
Impanga zitaranikwa ku karubanda

Twari dufite amateka

Uburere butaraha intebe uburezi
Amasaku ataratubera urujijo ngo abarezi tubite “abareezi”
Guterekera no gucuragura bitaritirirwa amarozi
Shitani itahabwa icyicaro mu mpinga za Karisimbi
Amajoro ari ay’ibitaramo mbere ya yandi 100 y’icuraburindi
Amateka akiryohera amatwi mu migani
Abasizi bakigira intebe mu rukari i bwami
Bakandika amateka nta karamu, nta kayi

Twari dufite amateka

Iminsi yose igisa nta mabara arivangamo
Umwera atarakirwa na Sharangabo
Amateka yacu yabaga mu ndirimbo, mu myato, mu mivugo, mu binyeto, mu bisigo
Uririmi rutaracikamo kabiri ngo ducire nk’impiri
Urwacu rutaritwa urw’impirimbiri
Mbere y’uko tuganzwa na za “Ar” na “Ré” z’inkoroni
Uburebure cyangwa ubugufi bwa eri butararangirira i Kigali
Ntaravukira hagati y’ikinyarwanda n’igiswayiri

Twari dufite amateka

Ayo nzi angana na rwa ruro
Ayo nizera yo ni nkaho ntayo
Ni yo mpamvu nshishimura amafuti ngo ndasiga
Mbasangiza ibihe ndimo nganira n’ejo hazaza
Mu gakinjiro k’amagambo ndacura n’abacuranwa
Imfura icura bucura, buri wese ni ukwimenya
Jye naribuze
Amaso yaheze mu kirere, nishakira mu nyenyeri
Ndahumbya nkatsitara ku ijambo nka wa musazi
Ndi umusizi, niyo nazima aka kanya
Inganzo yanjye yazamurikira ejo hazaza
Ubutwari bwanjye bukomoka ku bambanjirije
Ni ingabo mu bitugu ninjiranye mu ruhando rw’abandika amateka ntakomanze
Naje nje gutera igikumwe ku ryavuzwe na Lumumba
“Umunsi wageze ko Afurika yiyandikira amateka”
Iki si ikinamico mwana wa, fata ikaramu. Andika!
