Despite posting about s_x frequently the dancer and media personality sees it fit to discourage older and rich people from spreading HIV to young boys and girls especially the vulnerable ones.

Many times we hear of cases whereby one gets the virus and decides to pass it on to innocent people. This mentality has infected many youths in Africa just because one wants to punish others for their own encounters. Many African countries including South Africa fight against the spread of HIV and AIDS.
Campaigns and timely reminders on media platforms are also used to make the population aware of the causes and how to avoid spreading of the virus. In schools children are being taught about the virus and ways of preventing it. It is one of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals to eliminate the spread of HIV and Aids. This shows how serious the matter is.
