Entertainers drive campaign against crime
Major free concert planned for MoBay
WITH ST James’ scary crime problem now in uncharted waters with 2016 being the bloodiest year on record, entertainers Mackie Conscious and Queen Ifrika, who both hail from the western parish, are now fine-tuning preparations for the staging of a free music concert against crime and violence.
Dubbed Entertainers Against Crime and Violence,’ the concert will be held at the popular Dump Up Beach on Sunday, December 4, 2016 starting at 3 p.m. Indications are that some of the nation’s premier reggae artistes are on board with this event.
“This event is designed to have the major Jamaican recording artistes, both home and abroad, participate in donating their time to solidify a cry from the music fraternity that we need a change,” said Mackie Conscious.
“For too long we have been losing too many of our valuable Jamaicans through crime and violence. This has placed Jamaica in a position that is crippling all sectors of our society to include music, tourism, business, families, and is grossly affecting the entire economy,” he said.
With the overall planning still at an early stage,
