Here is my best explanation:

'in africa' is the definition.
('Rwanda' is part of 'africa')

'artist takes in magician's bar' is the wordplay.
'artist' becomes 'ra' (Royal Academician, member of Royal Academy of Arts).
'takes in' is an insertion indicator.
'magician's bar' becomes 'wand' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'ra' placed around 'wand' is 'RWANDA'.
