THE SECRET OF COMPOSING SONGS THAT LAST!
By Reuben Kigame
While being interviewed on a television station in Burundi late last year, I was asked a strange question: “Why is it that your songs never seem to die? We have been singing them for many years and they sound as fresh as they were many years ago.” I call it a strange question because I had never thought of my songs that way. However, something came to my mind at that time and I shared it in answer to the question. Now I look at it as a secret that is kept from many Christian songwriters, but would like to say that it should actually not be a hidden secret anymore.
