Actress Sandra Dacha Calls on Fellow Artists to Exercise Restraint When it Comes to Alcohol Consumption


Actress Sandra Dacha has called on fellow artists to exercise restraint when it comes to alcohol consumption. Dacha made the remarks at a candlelight vigil for the late comedian Ochonjo at the Kenya National Theatre on Thursday.

In her speech, Dacha urged artists to reconsider their relationship with alcohol and to exercise control and moderation. She acknowledged the allure of parties and social gatherings, but emphasized the importance of listening to medical advice regarding alcohol consumption.

“Parties are enjoyable, but please maintain control,” Dacha said. “If a doctor advises you to stay away from alcohol, do so. Similarly, if they recommend a diet without meat, opt for vegetables.”

Dacha underscored the need to prioritize one’s well-being and health, highlighting that completely abstaining from alcohol, as advised by a healthcare professional, can lead to significant improvements. She also spoke about the importance of drinking responsibly and for leisure rather than consuming alcohol solely to get intoxicated.

Fellow actress Jackie Nyaminde, who is better known by the stage name Wilbroda, stressed the significance of unity and support within the creative industry.

“We need to support each other and look out for each other,” Nyaminde said. “We need to be there for each other when we’re struggling.”

Dacha and Nyaminde’s words are a reminder that alcohol abuse is a serious problem in the creative industry. Artists are often under a lot of stress and pressure, and they may turn to alcohol as a way to cope. However, alcohol abuse can have serious consequences, including addiction, health problems, and even death.

If you are an artist who is struggling with alcohol abuse, there is help available. There are many treatment options available, and you do not have to go through this alone. Please reach out for help if you need it.
