Masicka donates computers to Calabar High
Dancehall star Masicka made a surprise visit to his alma mater, Calabar High School, on Tuesday, and donated three laptops to assist the school in its bid to effectively educate its students.
Keith Whyte, the immediate past president of the Calabar Old Boys' Association, thanked the deejay for his gesture.
"This contribution will be very useful to our robotics programme that started this week, as we can give them one of the laptops. We will also give one to the biology lab to help with the audio visuals. we have permanently mounted a projector in the lab so that the lecturer can show videos and not just do the traditional talk and chalk," Whyte said.
When the deejay arrived, he was greeted by Whyte and Rajay Maragh, the school's head boy, and they spoke about Masicka's days at Calabar.
"If I got a chance to go to a next school, I would still choose Calabar," Masicka said, grinning.
After a few minutes, Masicka was escorted to the principal's office to make the contribution. By this time, word had spread like a bush fire that Masicka was on the campus. Dozens of students began to congregate around the deejay.
The students greeted him enthusiastically with shouts of "up!", 'hardball!' and ''boom!'.
"Mi haffi take a picture with the killer," one student said.
Another young student, a rash of adolescent acne still fading from his cheeks, was ecstatic at sharing a lion paw with the 'yung gennah'. "Mi nah wash mi hand, mi shake hands with the general, mi just shake hands with the baddest," he was overheard saying.
The Calabar High School principal, Albert Corcho, thanked Masicka for his contribution. "I want to thank you for this contribution, I believe one of these computers can go to the reading room where it is well needed," he said.
