#55 - Fablice On Escaping Civil War, The Impact Of Education & Child Soldiers

Fablice Manirakiza, is an mc of Melbourne based rap group The FLYBZ (pronounced Fly-Beez), an invigorating breath of fresh air. At the young age of 21, Fablice has already achieved a lot in the musical field, recording a full length album of original material with his nephew G- Storm under the FLYBZ moniker and recently releasing a single featuring iconic Australian songwriter Paul Kelly.

Kicking off, we have a little fun with Tommy and Fablice spitting some freestyle. We then get to know our guest a little more and hear about his experiences in Burundi during the civil war. The conversation gets real as he shares more about the extreme difficulties he encountered during high school and the story behind how he migrated to Australia.

Moving on, Fablice shares with us how education has helped him to reach where he is right now and how this started to impact his life at an early age. We then talk of the current situation in Burundi and share a few ideas about how we can possibly change ourselves so that we may contribute more good to the world in general.

We then wrap it up with our 6 from 6 for Fablice!

Awesome convo. Enjoy guys.
