Hundreds of mense showed their support for Choice Drug Counselling Services this weekend by stieking uit for the Cape Town Sings - Up Close & Personal: Music For The Soul concert.

The Roxy Revue Theatre in Grand West was decked out in glitz and glam where the divos and divas took to the stage to thrill the crowd this weekend.

Artists Madeegha Anders, Krist Jonas, Nuraan Boltman, James Bhemgee, Fagrie Isaacs and Mujahid George brought the house down with their powerful voices and positive messages for those suffering from or affected by drug abuse.

Mense had a jol when Mujahid performed the famous Click Song of Miriam Makeba and brought out some old school beats including those of Tina Turner.

Director of Choice Drug Counselling Services Rifat Bowers says: “The show aims to highlight the plight of substance abuse in our community.

“The event showcased the finest Cape Town divas and divos who all endorse the vision that the management of Choice Drug Counselling has and that is to realise a drug-free community and culture, as we know that substance abuse affects every member of society.

“The event was also presented as a fundraiser for our forthcoming Madiba International Day, marking the Madiba Centenary when we will be partnering with the Nedbank foundation going into the community to feed still suffering addicts at Cape Town’s known substance abuse hotspots including Cape Town central, Wynberg, Mitchells Plain and Athlone (The Vlei).”
