Music has always been used as a tool for social change and on Saturday, November 25, some big names in music will gather at the Tema Sports Stadium for a concert that will draw attention to drug abuse.
Dubbed, Untamed Energy, the concert will feature the likes of Keche, Stay Jay, D Cryme, Eno Barony, Choirmaster, Edem and several more.
Speaking with Showbiz the initiator of the concert, George Britton said his outfit is using it as a platform to engage the youth on the negative effects of drug abuse.
According to the founder of George Britton.com, drug abuse is high but not much is being done to salvage the situation.

He cited figures from the Narcotics Control Board (NaCOB) which reveal that the menace is on the rise among the youth, particularly in the Senior High Schools and tertiary institutions.
He was certain that music could be a useful avenue to educate the youth on the dangers of drugs and the threat they pose to them achieving their potential.
“Music is the only safe drug the youth should be entitled to and that is why we are using music to reach out to thousands on this silent killer,” he said.
Apart from the campaign on drug abuse which will feature prominently, it will also be a night of great performances to delight patrons.
Already, Keche made up of Joshua Ampah and Andrew Cudjoe have assured patrons of a great event.
They haven’t been on many major platforms lately and they tell Showbiz the forthcoming event will be a “re-union” party.
