THE increase of drug abuse on the North Coast has prompted the youth from an NPO in La Mercy to spread the word among their peers to refrain from using drugs and instead use their talent.

Eco Artist and Development Centre and Siyathuthuka FM held a talent show at the La Mercy Community Hall recently to encourage the youth to use their talent to make a living.

Director of the centre Mbuso Mhlongo said their purpose is to inspire the youth in a positive way.

Mhlongo said in a statement: “The youth came as far as Ntuzuma, Mandeni, Glenwood, KwaMashu, Ndwedwe, Barbreeze, Umbhayi and other areas to participate and showcase their talent. They were also given information regarding the music industry and its challenges.

Guests included a motivational speaker from Ikhwezi FM Sabelo Mhlongo, representatives from the Department of Social Development and the public.
