Spice treats mothers with ‘cool’ gifts
Mother's Day was celebrated on Sunday, but the gift-giving continued on Monday night when dancehall artiste Spice treated a few women at Uptown Mondays to some household appliances.
As part of promotions for her song, Cool It, Spice took to the streets to distribute fans and refrigerators to some luck women who danced up a storm in a bid to cop one of the gifts.
Spice, who was at the Half-Way Tree venue to make the presentations, told THE STAR that having seen the level of support she has been getting for the song, she had to show her appreciation in a big way.
"The streets support my music a lot, so I'm always finding new ways to give back to them. With Sunday gone being Mother's Day, I thought this was the perfect way to show my appreciation to the ladies who have been going hard for me in the streets every night. This was just my way of saying thanks, I see you and I appreciate you."
In addition to the fans and refrigerators, some persons also got irons, microwaves and cash prizes.
Spice also noted that the giveaways will continue throughout the week at other weekly events.
"It was always the plan to do this week of giveaways, and after seeing how much it meant to the ladies at Uptown Mondays, I can't wait to put some smiles on the faces of some more women at the other events. These are the people who make my music what it is. They go hard in the streets, so I have to go hard for them."
Selector Boom Boom, who was the resident DJ at Uptown Mondays, was also in the spirit of giving on Monday night, as he, too, handed out cash to a few women at the event.
