“During my tour in Scandinavian countries i.e. Sweden and Denmark and also Belgium, I got the opportunity to discuss with the Burundian Diaspora who live there. They have a great plan for Burundi,” states Dudu.
According to him, youths have the potential not only tomorrow’s future of the country but the today’s hope because what people don’t seed today, they won’t harvest it tomorrow. Then the youths have to know that they have something precious in their life and must know the reason why they are living. “For succeeding, they have to work out their potential very usefully and keep it jealously. They should avoid being limited by geographic, economic situations or circumstances. That’s the reason why, we give messages through singing and preaching to help people open their mind and eyes as we were not only born to eat, entertain, drink, marry, study, die…” states Dudu.

He goes saying that he was satisfied with the journey because he met the Burundian Diaspora and talked about what they could do for Burundi. It was so amazing to realize that his country- fellows abroad think about Burundi and plan great things to the country. They needed someone to help them really understand what Burundi needs.
“This encouraged me and made me feel happy because it was a starting point of strengthening relationships between them and Burundi and sharing experience in various domains and sectors. Soon, there will be a big movement of people between Burundi and the rest of the world,” points out Dudu.

According to him, another point that he realized in foreign countries even though he is familiar with it, is the way people are thirsty and eager to know God. Dudu says that the way people search for God is the same everywhere though some people think that in Europe people don’t pray, they are quite mistaken! Maybe, they don’t know exactly what they are searching for.
“The appearance of people doesn’t match with their thoughts and their past lives. So they don’t have the same ability to understand things and the way they receive the message is quite different,” highlights Dudu.
Dudu calls upon everyone to change mentality and work hard to change the world because even if someone may give a hand to someone else whereas the mentality or ideas are not evolving, his help is nothing and the outcome will be meaningless.
