Founder of the Ndere Cultural Centre based in Kampala, Uganda Stephen Rwangyezi has emerged as one of the winners of the African Travel 100 Global Personalities Awards scheduled to take place on September 23rd at the 15th AKWAABA African Travel Market.

We need to be true to these arts, to learn them correctly – not just superficially… But to be honest to these arts, to be authentic, (and) also to bear in mind that Africa is not frozen in a historical museum!

Stephen Rwangyezi

Stephen Rwangyezi who starred alongside Forest Whitaker and James McAvoy in the Idi Amin movie, Last King of Scotland is a strong advocate of African art and culture. He started the Ndere Troupe in 1984 and over time, it has given birth to the Ndere Foundation and the Ndere Cultural Centre which is now regarded as Africa’s dancing encyclopaedia.

We at More Cream Than Coffee say a hearty congratulation to Stephen Rwangyezi!
