Bulawayo based dance group, Ezimnyama is using entertainment as a vehicle to educate youth on the dangers of drugs and other vices.

The group incorporates different forms of dances such as the Tswana dance, Isitshikitsha and various other contemporary ones.

The message in their music is mainly to educate the youth so that they abstain from practising early and unsafe sex, criminal activities and abuse of drugs.

Ezimnyama leader Phibion Ncube said artists should be disciplined as they are role models to a number of youth.

Art is a vital organ in society that does not only provide entertainment but educates the nation through drama, poetry and song.
