From child refugee to Swedish pop star- BBC News

A decade after being granted asylum in Sweden, 19-year-old Tousin Chiza is representing his adopted country at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam next week.

Tousin – or Tusse, as he’s known in Sweden – was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He fled to a refugee camp in Uganda aged five with his aunt, siblings and cousins, and lived there for three years until moving to Sweden aged eight.

“It’s a huge honour for me,” he tells Radio 1 Newsbeat. “It’s like the biggest thank you I can give.”
