n Will promote environmental awareness

Jamaican child star Wayne J was recently chosen to be the youth ambassador for the Alligator Head Foundation.

The Portland-based organisation, created by Swiss philanthropist Archduchess Francesca von Habsburg-Lothringen to conserve Jamaica's coastal and marine resources, has partnered with the young entertainer in an initiative to raise environmental awareness islandwide.

Wayne J's single, Plastic Bottles, featuring DizTroy and Apple Juice Kid, will be the theme song for this programme.

The talented dancehall prodigy, who came to national attention in 2014 with the release of his breakthrough single Chikungunya, will also participate in a series of public education programmes organised by the Alligator Head Foundation.

"I am very happy to be a part of this movement to protect Jamaica's coastal and marine environment. A lot of people depend on the sea for food and recreation; therefore, the protection of our coastal waters is vital," said the artiste.

Wayne J delivered a brilliant performance at the recently held Ghetto Splash in Waterhouse.

"Performing at Ghetto Splash was a very positive experience. The audience showed me a lot of love. I had a great time on stage; I'm looking forward to performing at the next staging of this event," he said.

Apart from promoting Plastic Bottles, Wayne J is also working on several new projects that will be released later this year.
