Everyone here knows him as ”Tusse”. The Congolese-Swedish singer was finalist and, despite having a cold that day, eventually winner in Swedish Idol 2019, broadcast on TV4. His version of the Whitney Houston classic How Will I Know became something of a crowd favorite, even more so that could be applied to the winning song Rain. At 17 (since then he’s turned 18), he became the youngest male winner ever.
Real name Tousin Chiza, he escaped the violence and hostilities of Congo-Kinshasa as a kid. At first he stayed in Nora and Västerås, before settling with a family in Leksand where he has lived since 2015.
