Dancehall Singjay Mavado last weekend hosted a special back-to-school treat for the children of Cassava Piece where he is from. This is the fifth year in back to back that Mavado host a back to school for his area. Several families in the Kingston 8 area were given back to school supplies by Mavado and a few corporate companies.
“Mi always remember where mi come from, and every year a look forward to give back to my community,” Mavado told Urban Islandz.
In a press release prior to the hosting of the event Mavado said, “The whole of uptown has been nice for a long time. Everybody is living good, youth and youth nah war and we are continuously encouraging them to live good with one another. Ever since we did the peace initiative, it’s been spreading across uptown and it’s the nicest it’s ever been.”
“Not a day goes by without me thinking of my father. And while I am a little sad he is not here to feel the joy, I am sure he is looking down and smiling to know his son has achieved great things and is giving back to the community. It’s also a celebration of the peace we’ve been working for, so everybody is welcome,” he added.
Keep up the good work Vado.
