Hello, my name is Aganze Maombi Bertin. I am a rapper from Congo, and my fans know me as "Bertin Cruise Leseaux".

In the year 2000, I got a call from a higher being to become a rapper. I began my musical career in a Congolese band called "Baoba Muzika", in the Northern Kivu/Goma region. By this time, I had already authored several fantastic and justice seeking songs. My inspiration came from a young French rapper called "Medine". I created a motto called Hero Music which includes the phrase: "Although the war continues, I want to pick up everything that seems to be helpful and I want to crush all who seem to break my talent".

By age 22 I had to leave my homeland, The Land of Hope, due to the ongoing wars. These selfish wars have created thousands of victims and refugees, and have been fueled by our abundant resources which our neighbors covet.

I arrived in Uganda a forsaken person. I have met many challenges, such as discrimination from the Ugandan people because I am not a Uganda. It is difficult to be in the music career here, as not many people are supporting Congolese rap.

I consider my culture to be "Education through Hip-Hop". as a musician, I believe I have so much to offer to the world. My wish is that my music will educate and inspire my fans to create a positive change in their communities. The only thing which is holding me back is the struggle to find funds for producing more music.

I have started an arts and performance project here in Uganda. It is called the "HHN22 ARTS ALL PROJECT"

It ?s art group founded in 2010 in Congo then restarted in Uganda on the 21st November, 2012. HHN22 means, "Habilitation, Hameau (Hamlet), Nacre (Nacreous) and 22 is (The force of strength to work and determination). It's an open group that welcomes individuals of different backgrounds and nationalities. The major aims/objectives of the organization is to discourage both youth and adults to stop prostitution and other criminal or negative acts.
To fight all forms of negative acts:
? Discrimination
? Prostitution
? Drug Abuse
? Theft
To encourage and train the unprivileged children, youths and others hand skills like art and craft to promote self reliance.
Teaching individuals to make:
? Necklaces, bangles, ear rings and key holders.
? Weaving bags
? Teaching Musical instruments
? Painting and printing
Family visits in order to get to know the background and the biography of each individual.

Through this work, I believe we can really help rebuild people's lives.
