Dar es Salaam. Swahili musical Juliana which depicts some of the historic moments in Tanzania is set to open the second Hollywood and African Prestigeous Awards (Hapa) at the Alex Theatre in California on September 30.

Juliana which was produced by Ma Vicky Rugakingira, depicts and traces the footprints of how it is believed HIV/Aids virus first entered Kagera Region in Tanzania after the fall of the infamous Dictator Iddi Amin of Uganda, in the late 1970s to early 1980s.

Currently, Ma Vicky is relentlessly working in partnership with a USA based Film Production Company, Chima Movie Empire Productions to project Juliana Musical Drama to Broadway Exhibition this year.

Rugakingira is currently working on filming Juliana Musical Drama which is set to turn into mainstream motion picture and its premiere which is set for in July 2018.

The musical was last year shown at the 20th edition of the Zanzibar International Film Festival attracting applause from the audience.

With energetic dances that come from both sides of the border of Tanzania and Uganada it is one that is bound to leave you speechless.
