RAPPER Frasha, real name Francis Hamisi, is taking a self-imposed 40-day 'sober challenge'. Over the period, according to the P-Unit group member, he will not indulge in alcohol in an attempt to send a message to the youth.
“I have been drinking alcohol for a very long time now. I want to quit alcohol and that's why I have challenged myself to start with this task. I know it's not going to be an easy thing to do, being who I am. I am always in clubs, bars and parties where there is always a lot of alcohol,” he told Word Is.
“I read the Bible a lot and I have been so inspired by the 'Jesus in the wilderness' story. He fasted for 40 days and He still conquered the temptations. I am a role model to many youth and I feel that I can never be a complete one while still drinking alcohol. I am ready to see where this challenge takes me.”
Frasha, who will be contesting for the directorship of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya, during its general election scheduled for March 21, says alongside other partners, he has organised a two-day symposium in Machakos to address the issue of drug abuse among the youth. The event ends today.
“I am passionate about music and it's not always for money. Music is universal and it brings influence. I want to change the fate of our youth and artistes. If elected at MCSK, I will bring change which many artistes have been yearning for. I will fight for proper structures to be put in place to cater for the welfare of our artistes among many other issues that need to be addressed.”
