Comedian Nkusi highlights lack of art schools in Rwanda

Arthur Nkusi

Rwanda’s finest comedian, Arthur Nkusi requests the ministry of education and concerned authorities to invest in art schools.

The celebrated comedian and radio presenter made the assertion through social media and lots of people supported the idea.

 “Rwanda has art and talent but lacks schools to boost the skills and arts industry,” wrote Nkusi.

Nkusi said artists survive on imported skills which makes it hard to compete with artists who have been through school.

The government of Rwanda is currently prioritizing and investing in vocational schools to boost self-employment among the youths.

The government also through Workforce Development Authority (WDA) has set up art school but mainly focusing on music.

Arthur’s talent so far has earned him huge sums of money from giant telecommunication companies like Airtel and MTN.

The comedian’s passion for entertainment is traced from his father Kennedy Mazimpaka, who is known in showbiz industry as a radio presenter, actor and one of the pioneers of city disc jokers.

Arthur started standup comedy as a profession in 2010 at Ishyo arts center with only few comedians under one group known as Komedy Knight Boys.
