Fast rising dancehall artiste Jahshii is paying it forward by giving back to the community of Grants Pen.

Jahshii and his First Nation Family brand donated to four community institutions which made a difference in his life and continue to make a difference in the lives of residents.

The 21-year-old used the proceeds of $1.15 million, earned from his birthday bash held earlier this year, to fund cash donations to Edna Manley Health Centre, Upper Room Community Church, Shortwood Practising Primary and Infant, and the Shortwood Basic School.

The Edna Manley Health Centre received $500,000 towards the purchase of sterilization equipment while The Upper Room Community Church was presented with a cheque for $250,000. Jahshii’s first school, the Shortwood Basic School, run by the Shortwood United Church, received $200,000 and The Shortwood Practising Primary and Infant school, which Jahshii also attended, was presented with a cheque of $200,000.
