Some Tanzanian musicians have gone on social media to show concern and ask for prayers on his behalf

Feza Manzi, a radio presenter and artiste said

“a plan is needed to as a society to fight this demon. Let’s pray for our brothers and sisters who are caught up in drug addiction. We need to stop this drug business, we need to teach about it and make our kids fear this drug, and we also need to love the ones affected, pray for them because it might come to your house”

Here is a video 

Our prayers are with him and we hope he gets the help he needs.

      The perils of the limelight. He probably would have been drug free if he had stayed mediocre

      It’s sad. However, it has nothing to do with limelight. If you watched BBA that season and you know Nando; this wouldn’t come as a surprise.
      I hope God heals him and I hope he’s able to help himself.

    I remember this guy. He has always had issues even in the house. Wasn’t he unconventionalily evicted after he fought with Elikem threatening him or something? Maybe the eviction was what chased him to the deep end. Biko, anyone that can lend a hand to help him should. This fine face must not waste like that.

      Yes oh he concealed a knife so he could stab Elikem, but fortunately for Elikem and unfortunately for him he got evicted.

      Anonymous, you’re wrong. Nando wasn’t evicted, he was disqualified for violence. Elikem wasn’t evicted, he was in the house till the last day with Melvin, Beverly, Dillish, and I can’t remember the remaining two.

      I pray that God may rebuke all the demonic that was done to this boy. I send and destroy all the demonic spirit was done to this sweet cute boy. He is suffering for the truth. I say fire evil spirit of drugs FIRE FIRE and go back to the sender in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Amen. May the blood of Jesus Christ wash away all the demonic spirit from him, from head to toe in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ Amen. I prophesy that Nando will come back to his sense and become a STAR again. I evek saw a football star from this cute little boy. God will reveal His power and His greatness through Nando in Mighty name of Jesus Christ amen.

    How come no one is talking about rehab? Abi Africans don’t go to rehab? God can cure him quite alright, but why must we call God in every single thing before exercising our common sense. I’m sure God would want us to use the brain He has so freely and magnanimously given us. Whites don’t have a different brain, they just simply use it more! God help Africa. Dark Continent

      God help you too and teach you comprehension of comments. Did anybody here say “take him to church”? Is it not “God help him” that you are seeing here? Or are they to start directing him to different rehabilitation centres,when this is on net,and we are all from different countries?
      What then do you mean by “God help dark Africa”?
      Africa na your mate? God help you to learn and know respect.
