As a retired soldier, Munyanshoza has told IGIHE that he has deeper understanding on the value of heroes and wanted to remind Rwandans on outstanding deeds of heroes through the song.
“As a retired soldier trained on patriotism and understanding the value of heroes’ legacy, the song is my contribution to spread awareness of their outstanding deeds so that we altogether walk the journey towards upholding heroes’ legacy,” he said.
The artist also encouraged Rwandans to concert efforts to consolidate gains.
