Ikirezi Group Ltd was established in 2008 to promote the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to Rwandan culture, economic and social welfare from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the still unimagined musical breakthroughs of future generations of music professionals.

Ikirezi Group Ltd is the originator and owner of Salax Awards. Cognizant of the value in partnership, we partnered with Yes Africa Ltd to purposely harness the benefits from working together and scale up Salax Awards, and we are now stronger and better positioned to make Salax Awards reach farther and deeper in the minds and hearts of our stakeholders.

With this partnership, our expected and desired destination is higher levels of excellence in music and other arts in Rwanda and East African Community. We are informed by the well analyzed strengths, emerging opportunities and recommendations from our three years implementation strategy, which is guiding us about how to transform challenges into learning opportunities.

IKIREZI Group has always wished to work in partnership year-round with whoever wishes to promote and develop Rwandan Music (Traditional and Modern) to bring national attention to important issues such as the value and impact of music and arts education and the urgency of preserving our rich cultural heritage.
