Harare | Nutty O, an AFRO dancehall chanter, is collaborating with rising rappers to ramp up the fight against drug and substance misuse.
Nutty has pledged to use his celebrity to encourage young artists to abstain from using drugs and other illegal substances.
As part of the team against drug misuse, he is collaborating with emerging rapper Dough Major.
“Obviously, you should not engage, indulge, or become involved in the act of abusing any drugs or substances that wreak havoc on your physical and mental well-being because your health is your wealth.”
“Drug and substance abuse not only harms your health, but it also harms your future because it deprives you of the opportunity to be successful and a leader of tomorrow.”
“Young people should know that your existence is dependent on your health and, for that reason, I discourage the abuse of drugs by the youth and everyone else in Zimbabwe,” said Nutty O.
Similar sentiments were echoed by Dough Major, who urged young artists to be role models.
“As artists, we need to be more informative, meaning that we need to educate the youths about how drug and substance abuse negatively affects you in the present and in the long run.
“This can be done via various platforms such as concerts, shows and adverts.
“Furthermore, I think artists need to preach about abstinence from drug misuse in their music so that those young fans and followers who idolise them will take heed of the advice.
“One of the major push factors that leads to drug abuse is boredom and idleness and, as artists, our role is to engage young people in activities such as album launches and shows to keep them busy and off the streets,” said Dough.
