Coming off an exhilarating performance in the twin island republic of Trinidad & Tobago Dancehall star Aidonia continues to up the ante on his career heading into the festive season. The Jag One Productions (JOP) head honcho along with members of his camp departed the island on Wednesday, October 22nd for Europe where they’ll embark on a 20-city tour of that continent.
Commencing in Amsterdam the capital city of Netherland the tour is expected to last three weeks spanning ten countries with stops in cities such as Perugia, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Rennes, Lyon, Montpellier, Geneva, Zurich, Wuppertal and Barcelona among several others. Despite the inclement and sometimes frigid weather conditions associated with that continent, Aidonia reassured his fans that will not dampen his spirit in anyway so when they come to the various concert venues they can expect nothing but a series of energy-filled action-packed shows along the tour.
“Europe has always been a place that shows Aidonia and the JOP family a lot of love, we know this time of the year can be very cold and uncomfortable but the fans want to see us so that is enough motivation for us to make sure we go out there be it rain, snow or sleet to give them a 110% and nothing less… because they don’t get to see us very often therefore we have to leave them with something to remember each time we visit.” – Aidonia explained.
The sanguine entertainer is expected to return to the island in mid-November in time to premier a pair of videos for his street bubblers ‘Love Off Yuh Gyal’ and ‘Ryder’ both shot by accomplished director Michael ‘Bigzship’ Burbridge.
The tour comes on the heels of his One Voice Foundation and Scholarship programme launch at the Maxfield Park Primary School geared towards rendering financial assistance to students annually. Worth almost $300,000 Jamaican dollars the scholarship focuses on five students at the grade six level. The top student who exemplify good behaviour, attitude, maintain the highest grades and overall progress throughout their primary school tenure and passes their GSAT Examinations will receive an annual grant of $200,000 for high school. The remaining four will each receive a $20,000 book voucher annually to offset high school expenses. The scholarship programme was spearheaded by Ms. Monica Lawrence – Mother of Aidonia and also a teacher at the institution.
