At least in every Rwandan home there is a locally produced film with vernacular episodes which have kept most homes entertained.
But today ushers in a dark side of the local film industry. Denis Nsanzamahoro known by his screen name RWASA has breathed his last succumbing to a fight with diabetes.
When Silver Film production Ltd released the movie, “Rwasa”, its main actor Denis Nsanzamahoro, aka Rwasa, earned popularity without revealing much about his personality.
This actor featured in 12 international movies and was so proud of this achievement, “I am in international actors’ database already,” Rwasa said in 2015 during an interview with media.
According to Rwasa, his journey in the local film industry was not as smooth as it sounds.
“The journey has been rough, I must say, though it has been one of those experiences that certify our goals and ambitions in this industry. Along the way challenges can be found in every corner and having to fight for the opportunity to be seen or heard so that you can prove your worth… and not always getting that chance in the end is just one of the issues,” he said in the interview then.
Rwasa will be missed by a millions of his fans both in the country and the region.
