One of Jamaica’s top dancehall stars is pitching in to help the environment in his homeland.
Jamaica news reports indicate that Sean Paul has committed to funding the removal of a welding plant, which he says is polluting the atmosphere close to the National Stadium swimming pool. Paul, who is an ambassador for climate change and an avid swimmer, having represented Jamaica in water polo, had taken to social media to voice his concerns about the air pollution caused by the welding plant.
His comments were published by the media. But the artiste went a step further and pledged to assist in funding the removal of the site.
“I am petitioning for permanent removal of the welding site from the pool area to a more conducive place on the stadium grounds with a very little hindrance to the workflow that I understand is necessary for the welding plant,” he wrote. “In light of the inherent costs associated with this effort, I am open to providing financial assistance to the relevant authority to relocate this very offensive welding plant.”
