For the love of Stromae

For the love of Stromae

So recently I got a chance to experience a Belgian superstar from his coming in to the end… You know the one called Stromae (which is the alternation of the word Maestro FYI) more info about him here

I will feature snapshots (unless indicated) from my friend Cyril N of  Widepix and a whole gamut of photo ops around the country. He generously gave me a chance to have his pictures grace my blog so here goes:

My co-workers and I- Cyril and Audace got the chance to go wait for him at the airport but unlucky for us, lucky for him- We were not allowed to take his first emotions till the next day at his press conference…

With my co-workers ready to cover the whole story of his jetting in. Selfie via Audace's iPhone... Lol...

We were so desperate that taking photos and calling our little group #TeamNoSleep was a cope out to relieve the stress... That hashtag is the name we coined ourselves because we waited till 2 am! Another Whoah! Mind you Stromae touched down at 10 am Kigali time... Major bummer.

That was just a little of the woes we had to go through, I mean even with all that we didn’t quit so we eventually got to the concert and I must say I had a ball!

Ok, let these next pictures talk on their own(with my cheesy captions of course on the below)…
