“I couldn’t choose between music and education, so I decided to fuse the two.” ‘Rap guru Stevo’ whose real names are Stephen.E.Mwale says education is vital for an for any one to succeed in life.
“I couldn’t choose between music and education, so I decided to fuse the two,” said Stevo.
Stevo attests to the fact that combining music and school is complicated because they both require equal attention. But he has managed to combine the two by adhering to his set principles.
“I had to break the barrier between school and music by allocating time for both because I cannot manage to live without music,” said Stevo.
“I believe that with God all things are possible and when one's talent is embodied, it becomes easy to deal with the two,” he said.
“I urge upcoming artistes to set trends by educating the nation through their music in addressing issues that are causing havoc in our society,” says Stevo.
‘Instead of self-praising, artistes should cover issues that are affecting the youths such as gender based violence, HIV and AIDS, STI’s, violence and corruption”.
