By composing music that educates the population on the effects of drug abuse, musicians can contribute to the fight against drug abuse, says Eric Senderi, a renowned local artiste.
While winding-up a recent national campaign against drug abuse, yesterday, Senderi called on fellow musicians to join the campaign.
“For sometime now, I have been engaged in this campaign on my own through music. Therefore, my contribution should serve as an eye opener for fellow musicians to get on board,” said Senderi.
The exercise started in Nyamaseke District and ended in Kicukiro.
Some of the reacks that he sang during the campaign include “Police Mudatenguha”, “Intore ntiganya ishaka ibisubizo” and “Abanyarwanda twaribohoye”, among others.
Meanwhile, the star last week released his new single, “Gira umutima otabara”, which encourages the population to donate blood during an event to mark the World Blood Donor Day on June 14.
The event which was organised by Rwanda Biomedical Centre (RBC), took place in Rubavu District, Western Province.
“The song reflects on the need for people to support others even when they do not expect anything in return.
“Based on the need and importance of donating blood, it is high time that every Rwandan gets on board,” he added.
