kwaito legend Kabelo Mabelane, helps us battle substance abuse and addiction.
We are joined by award winning kwaito legend Kabelo Mabelane, he joins us to discuss the topic of addiction. He suffered from addiction in the earlier years of his career, but managed to kick the habit. Now he has a 13-part TV series titled "Kick It", about helping addicts to kick their addictions.
Kabelo arose to stardom in the ‘90s as part of the kwaito group TKZee, he would then go off and become a solo act after the group disbanded. Not did he excel in becoming a solo act, but he would also go on to become an actor and published author. Kabelo is now working with the Social Development MEC Nandi Mayathula-Khoza, and the Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi, in an effort to give insight into the world of substance abuse and the effects drugs have on all levels in communities.
The whole country is effected by drugs in some form or another, and it will continue unless something like this keeps happening. Drug addiction and substance abuse is a huge problem in our country and the idea for this show came about to shed light on how big of an issue we are dealing with.
