Veteran dancehall artiste Buju Banton has gifted Jamaican students at two children’s homes on the island with computer devices needed for online classes.
Banton, through his Buju Banton Foundation, made donations of laptops for each of the 40 boys at the Sunbeam Children’s Home in St Catherine. The Gargamel also donated desktop computers and chairs to the Mount Olivet Boys Home in Manchester.
Earlier this year, he had also donated his 3-million dollar cash prize from Jamaica’s Festival Song Competition to the Sunbeam Boys Home.
The Buju Banton Foundation said that American Rapper Kanye West pitched in to help Banton’s donation of computer devices to boys at the homes.
