It's not your every day pairing on a music video. A refugee from Congo with a police constable.

Gentil Misigaro will never forget the five years he spent just trying to stay alive in Uganda.

He also won't forget the kindness he found when he arrived to his new home of Winnipeg. One of those friends was Constable Kevin Gibson. 

Gibson was looking for a singer to work with him at Status4, an organization that provides free arts and music classes to inner city kids.

Since then, Misigaro has worked with Gibson on a variety of creative projects.

Today Misigaro is celebrating the release of his new video called 2 plus 9.

The song features Misigaro along with Winnipeg Constable Kevin Gibson and a girl called Rumba.
