Artists endorse Cossy Rules riddim

Entertainment Reporter

FIFTY-two artists from Kadoma have endorsed music promoter and philanthropist Cosmas Daka’s initiative of promoting anti-drug abuse in the City of Gold.

The prominent businessman, who has sponsored top artists like the late Tongai “Dhewa” Moyo, said his heart bleeds for the youth of Kadoma who have lost focus due to drug abuse.

Better known as Cossy Rules, he said he was determined to uplift young talent from Kadoma and the surrounding areas.

Last weekend, a local music producer unveiled a new riddim named after the businessman where 10 artists got prize money.

The initiative, which was held in a passa passa fashion, saw new gems being unearthed at the event.

Prominent artists Mostaff and Tocky Vibes blessed the occasion.

Kadoma’s finest chanter, Sparta, was the toast of the night along with Cjah Matsotsi and female chanter Nisha.

In an interview with H-Metro, Daka said he will use his influence to change young people’s lives.

“As a community leader and role model, I have decided to sponsor these youngsters by giving them money as a way of appreciating their talent.

“I have realised that there is more which needs to be done to fight drug abuse rather than just saying ‘no to drugs’ without empowering the youths.

“These young people need our support and serious action like rehabilitation and not these talk shows.

“I have also been interacting with them and I now understand some of their challenges,” he said.

Meanwhile, Daka donated soccer balls to local football teams as a way of supporting young people to stay away from drugs.

Daka, who once ran a football club in Kadoma, believes the City of Gold has a lot of sporting talent, which is going to waste due to lack of sponsorship, which he hopes to address.
