Recording artiste Buju Banton is not just making moves with Khaled, he is also busy with Audiomack making donations.
The Buju Banton Foundation in partnership with the music streaming platform, Audiomack , donated musical instruments to the Mount Olivet Boys’ Home. Banton and the Foundation’s Director, Rosemary Duncan, both handed over the equipment to the Home’s Facility Director, Patrick Newman, on Tuesday.
While showing gratitude to the entertainer and the streaming company, Mr. Newman cheerfully said, “Your donation of musical instruments, in collaboration with music streaming company, Audiomack, is an indication of your commitment to unearth the talents of the boys and provide an additional avenue for them to learn to play an instrument and to continue the strong tradition of Jamaica, producing great players of instruments. Furthermore, the Buju Banton Foundation is proof that each person can make their contribution to provide an invaluable service to all those who need a nurturing hand to blossom.”
Buju Banton, who has been known to give back, established the foundation in January 2019 to serve at-risk boys. He explained its mission, “I know what it is for a child to go without basic necessities. I also know what it is to be a youth with big dreams and lots of determination. Unfortunately, daunted and unable to achieve your destiny, due to a lack of a helping hand. It is not an easy road, my children. However, Jah has blessed me. I have made it my mission, through the Buju Banton Foundation, to help, by giving light to youth living in the darkness of poverty. Thus ensuring they too have equal opportunities to succeed.”
The reggae icon is currently working alongside Dj Khaled, who is busy finishing up his album ‘Khaled Khaled.’
Buju is no stranger in adding his friends in the mix as Kanye West was with him a few months ago donating equipment to the home.
