Addressing the talent show 'Kyong Vontsoniro' as chief guest, Patton lauded the organizers for their initiative in bringing together all talented people of the region under one umbrella. He further urged the talented singers and comedians to develop their talent for the good of the society and appealed them not destroy God given talents, by indulging in bad habits especially drugs and alcohol.
