Filipino Rapper Knows Drug Education Important

by Mike Miller February 10, 2012

It is always nice when a celebrity uses their powerful personality and charisma to help make society better. We need more positive role models for our children. Filipino rapper Juan Carlos Salcedo is just such a guy!

The Hong Kong-based Filipino rapper sang to a roused audience during the World Revolution Music Festival or “Revfest.” according to the

The annual music festival aims to fight drug abuse and promote awareness of the dangers of drug use.

The 23-year-old Salcedo displayed his own brand of entertainment as he delivered Christian songs in rap, a wide departure from the conventional gospel music genre.

Salcedo represented the Philippines for this year’s festival, which was joined also by singers from Brazil, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Macau.

The positive messages coming from Salcedo are especially prescient as Hong Kong and Macau have serious concerns over increasing incidents of drug use especially among the youth. There are also increasing cases of drug trafficking into the territories with the involvement of some Filipinos, the latest being in Hong Kong with a Filipino caught with 26 kilograms of heroin.

Hopefully there will be more Christian and other celebrities that promote sobriety. Keeping our youth off drugs is a key to the future success of life as we know it.
