CHILSPOT Records will join hands with Golden Records on a campaign dubbed Stop Drug Abuse.
The campaign is set to be held next month at St Mary’s Community Hall, Chitungwiza.
A brainchild of Golden Records Elder Moyo (real name Berryson Manyakaidze) event organisers said they are happy to collaborate with Chillspot on the campaign since it’s one of the most influential record labels in Zimbabwe.
“We have a gig that is in the pipeline dubbed Stop Drug Abuse.
“I am glad to announce that Chillspot Records have agreed to work with us and their support is a boost to this drug abuse awareness campaign since they have a big influence in the Zim dancehall industry at the moment,” said Elder Moyo.
Elder Moyo said he is worried about a lot of youths succumbing to drug abuse and he has decided to use music since he believes it is a powerful tool.
“Ghetto youths are dying and they can’t save money because of drugs.
“Some are becoming prostitutes and thieves in order to afford drugs. Domestic violence is on rise due to the consumption of drugs.
“And some people are losing jobs because of drugs since they make one lose focus,” he said.
“Music is a powerful weapon and it influences most of the people.
“As our music circulates it reaches more people all over the globe and some people will definitely embrace the message.
“We are calling upon the people of Zimbabwe and all over to join in this battle against drug abuse.
“It is our role to educate youths as entertainers,” he added.
Meanwhile, the riddim titled Stop Drug Abuse, will be launched tomorrow on Star FM on DJ Mable Zim dancehall show.
Artistes set to feature on the riddim are Enzo Ishall, Gidagoria, Crystal and many more.
