Dennis Mugo commonly known as OJ has taken up a new initiative to keep him away from the bottle and to help the youth from becoming alcoholics.
Together with his colleague, Immaculate Murugi popularly known as Ashley on Tahidi High, the two will nurture hundreds of talents in Embu county where they held auditions.
Successful youths will be cast in a short film to begin their journey into the acting world that will be shot in Embu. The thespians said talents help the youth earn an honest living and participate in nation-building.
Murugi added the initiative will be a major boost in eliminating criminal activities and drug abuse in the county.
She called on parents to allow their children to pursue careers of their choice and support them in pursuing their passion as a way of empowering the young generation.
“Some children are born with diverse skills that if identified early and harnessed well, they can turn to be great sportsmen and artists of this county,” she said.
OJ made sure he made it clear that education should be given a priority in as much as they want to pursue the arts because it is very important.
