He died aged 27.
Fans and fellow musicians hailed his talent and described him as “genuinely good energy”.
The young star’s untimely passing unleashed a flood of tributes from across East Africa.
A requiem mass was held at EAR Remera Anglican Church in Rwanda to pray for the remains of the late singer and allow relatives and friends to eulogize him.
The burial was attended by fans, family and people from different sectors of the creative industry, government officials, his management and New Level – which raised and promoted him to the international music scene.
He started his music career in 2009 under the stage name Yvan Buravan but it was not until 2015 when he had a major breakout as an R&B and Afrobeat singer and songwriter who went on to release songs such as ‘Urwo Ngukunda’, featuring Uncle Austin, ‘Malaika’, ‘Just a dance’ and many others.
