Guma Guma Super Star aka PGGSS is an annual Rwanda reality singing competition show like no other. PGGSS is sponsored Bralirwa's Primus lager and was created by East African Promoters (EAP) to help and grow music entertainment in Rwanda. Unlike East Africa's Tusker Project Fame and American Idol where the competitors are unknown talent, Primus Guma Guma Super Star takes known Rwandan artists like Tom Close, King James, Riderman, Dream Boys and have them compete against each another in hopes of winning cash to promote their music career to new heights.
The 3rd season which took place in 2013 was bigger than the previous 2 seasons and the journalists and show biz analysts billed Bralirwa's Primus Guma Guma Super Star the biggest and most-intense music contest in Rwanda.
In 2013, the media accuses East African Promoters and Bralirwa, the two main organizers of Primus Guma Guma Super Star,for a massive rigging of the 2013 PGGSS season in favor of the current winner Riderman.
