A former world dancing champion, Adjetey Sowah, has advised the youth to stay out of drugs which he says could destroy their lives and dim their resourcefulness.
Speaking on Footprints on Citi TV, the Ghanaian dancing legend reiterated the need to pursue education despite the talents and skills as this will help the youth to develop a formidable future and build self-confidence.
According to him, Christianity influenced his lifestyle and made him stay away from drugs despite peer pressure.
“I regret for not taking my education seriously because it gets to some point that you want to express yourself but you can’t. The youth should stay out of drugs and focus and be diligent about their trade.”
Adjetey Sowah, an Accra born, won the National Dancing Championship in the 1980’s and later travelled to the United Kingdom to win the World Dancing Championship in 1986. He hails from Teshie, a suburb of Accra in the Greater Accra region.
He identified his dancing talents and sharpened his skills at class six when he was appointed as the leader of the school’s traditional cultural dance troop and progressed to Labone Secondary School in 1980.
