Ricky Trooper and friends to support Haiti
Veteran disc jock Ricky Trooper has teamed up with House of Dancehall, Exodus system, and others in the dancehall fraternity in Jamaica to raise relief supplies for Caribbean neighbours Haiti, which was ravaged by Hurricane Matthew recently.
More than 800 persons lost their lives as a result of the hurricane.
The help will come in the form of a session that will be held this Sunday at the House of Dancehall, Cargil Avenue, Kingston 10. Activities are expected to begin at 8 p.m.
According to Trooper, admission is to either donate two cans of food or a bag of clothing or bottled water. Money will not be collected at the entrance.
"We had a discussion one day that we were really sad what took place in Haiti. People lost their lives, livestock, and homes because of Hurricane Matthew and we wanted to do something tangible to help the people who are in need at this time," Trooper told THE WEEKEND STAR.
Exodus sound system and Sound Trooper will provide the musical presentation at the event. "Is like the whole music fraternity in Jamaica is on this project, everybody trying to do their part," Trooper said. "A number of selectors have promised to pass through and will have a grand time while contributing to a worthy cause."
He said several artistes have endorsed the initiative.
