A local female musician and filmmaker, Sarah Dhliwayo Nkala has launched a short film titled Juliet.

The film, which is based in Nkala’s 5th musical album, highlights issues to do with early child marriages and drug abuse.

Nkala says the initiative is meant to encourage young girls to venture into income generating projects.

Other artists, who graced the occasion, said young female artists should be given a chance to showcase their talent either through music recordings or films.

Entertainment at the launch was provided by Takue Bleezy and Sister Fox and the Firefox band.
