Youngsters of Tsogo Sun Arts Academy at Diepsloot Primary School were graced with the presence of multi-award winning singer, songwriter and producer Loyiso Bala.

He was there to encourage and motivate them.“You will find in many walks in life that is the creative thinkers who are most successful” said Loyisi to the youngsters. He also said that teamwork and accountability to others is important.

Shanda Paine, Group CSI Manager for Tsogo Sun explains their aim: ”We use the arts as a medium to deliver life skills, leadership and healthy lifestyle information, while also reinforcing the importance of education to young people.”

Loyiso’s role model is Lwanda Bantom, who was there to encourage him to not give up when the going got tough. The Tsogo Sun Arts Academy has given disadvantaged people hope for a brighter future.
