Coast based hip-hop artist Ohms Law Montana is set to reap big after he received a node from Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i.
Matiang’i singled out the Coast young rapper who has been using music to disentangle youth from crime and extremism.
While marking 10th anniversary of the sea cable network at SwahiliPot Hub in Mombasa, Monday, Matiang’i noted that through the ‘Acha Gun shika mic’ music campaign spearheaded by Mr. Montana, many youth have embraced art and are earning from it.
“I am equally impressed by what this young man is doing, from today I will fully support his music career and anything that am supposed to do towards uplifting further his dreams,” noted Mr. Matiang’i.
Matiang’i encouraged youth to shun criminal activities and engage themselves in constructive activities that will make them self reliant.
“I am surprised but equally encouraged by what SwahiliPot Hub has been doing to the youth in the region and specifically in Mombasa, lets appreciate Mr. Mahmoud Noor’s tireless efforts in constructively engaging the youth,” noted Dr. Matiang’i.
Apart from Montana, other 20 youth attached to the technology and art centre will benefit from the Interior CS boldheart.
