Rapper La Balaa Marks Three Years of Sobriety, Seeking to Help Drug Addicts

March 3, 2016

la-balaaRapper La Balaa is celebrating a massive 45 months of staying sober.
The one half of the Wakamba Wawili hip hop duo saw his music career stall after getting into alcohol and substance abuse. As a result, he sought professional help in a rehabilitation centre and is now celebrating over three years of sobriety.
And he is not stopping there! The Ukoo Flani member will this Saturday host a basketball event called Ballers Day Out at Laiser Hill Secondary School in Rongai. The event will see him host other rappers in sessions dubbed Balling Drugs Out, as part of his many initiatives against drugs and substance abuse.
He said, “The essence of faith is fewness of words and abundance of deeds. I took a step when all seemed lost for me and I am grateful for that step. It was a great turning point for me. Now, I want to spread the awareness, just in a bid to help someone else who might be in the same fix I was in three years ago.”
The event will feature colleges and high schools in and around Nairobi among them USIU, Buru Buru Girls, Mang’u High School, St George’s Girls, Laiser Hill and Statehouse Girls.
Musically, he and Agano(Wakamba Wawili) are currently working on an album set to be released later in the year.
