The life of a young artist from the street

My name is Mushidi Athumani, born in Bukoba in the North West of TANZANIA on the 17th of July in 1989. When I was young, my parents divorced, leaving my sister and me behind with our grandmother.

I could go to primary school, but life was not easy at the centre. In 1999 I was lucky to meet...
