He might have decided to relocate his talent to the US a few years ago, but Rwandan singer, Benjamin Mugisha aka The Ben is building a massive mansion in his hometown, Nyamata, a 30 minute drive from Kigali.

The new estate which is in its early stages of construction will include a state of the art indoor recording studio among other features.

The Ben’s rapper brother, Green P, real name Elia Rukundo is currently helping him to manage the project, the latter told this website.

“Ben is setting up a base in Nyamata and am supervising the project, this means that any time The Ben will be returning home,” Green P said.

The ‘Am in love’ it maker is currently reaping lots of cash thanks to the Rwandan diaspora, it’s these bucks that have enabled him to save and lay the foundation of his return to the soil.

The Ben recently made a significant amount of money to record a song, “Hope” for the just concluded 21st Genocide Commemoration week, courtesy of the Rwandan Embassy in Washington, DC and the United Nations.

“It’s true am building but it’s not yet time to make it public because I wanted to surprise my fans back after the project is done,” The Ben told Afrika Reporter via Whatsapp

The Chicago-based R&B star and fellow musician, Meddy, decided to pursue the American dream five years when they canceled plans to return back home after they performed in Washington, DC.
