President Paul Kagame and the First Lady Mrs. Jeannette Kagame would up a busy weekend by attending the Kwita Izina Gala Dinner which was held on Sunday night at Intare Arena in Rusororo, Gasabo district. The colourful event featured performances by legendary Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour, Joel Ruti and a cameo appearance by Sauti Sol.

“This evening at Intare Arena, President Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame attended the #KwitaIzina Gala Night, celebrating the 18th edition of the gorilla naming ceremony during which 20 newborn gorillas were named on Friday at the foothills of Volcanoes National Park,” Urugwiro Village tweeted.

The dinner was also attended by some of the namers who participated in the annual naming baby gorilla naming ceremony, including football legend Didier Drogba and Kenyan band Sauti Sol, among others. The group took to the stage to perform the popular hit song ‘7 Seconds’ by N’Dour and Nene Cherry, while Drogba did not hesitate to show off his dance moves.

It was an evening of glitz and glamour as N’Dour put up a performance befitting a legend of his status, with the Ivorian and former Chelsea star Drogba hopping on the stage to prove that his dancing skills can match the skills he displayed on the pitch during his playing days.
