COSMO CITY CHRONICLE APOLOGISES TO ZANDSPRUIT HONEYDEW COMMUNITY FOR THE INAPROPRIATE HEADLINE IN THE PRINT EDITION OF THE STORY.AS NOT ALL THE MIGHTY MADRID FC PLAYERS ARE NOT DRUG ADDICTS
Qhwala Fam co-founder Ishmael Masuku popularly known as “Ishmiza SA” abided by his mission earlier this year, as he revived depressed underrated soccer players back into the pitch and brought back ambition to some young drug addicts in the community of honeydew.
The young propitious musician who dwells in Zandspruit instigated the initiative in 2016 collaborating closely with Siyabonga Banda and Vitos. The initiative could not prosper, initially, due to lack of interest by some of the young soccer players who dealt with troubling issues endured in the community.
Three years down the line Ishmiza SA decided to revive the initiative by targeting narcotic users to further their dreams through soccer. Mighty Madrid FC was then formed, which so far is one of the best team in honeydew. The team has initially played 15 matches and in these matches they have managed to win 13 games and have only lost twice this year.
“Stoping drug abuse and bringing back hope in the hearts of each vulnerable kid in my community has always been my motto”,Ishmiza SA said.
“I saw an opportunity to transform the situations that these kids encounter and through this team I have acknowledged that second chances are always obstructed by each individual’s mentality”, He added. “Some of these players are quite good participants on the field, they only desire support and encouragement which might lead them into playing for great team’s such as Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs”.
“We will be playing against Orlando Pirates development team on the 27th of March which will be a friendly match and we would kindly like your support, please come through in numbers”, Ishmiza SA concluded.
