Decky Promotions donates to St Mary infirmary

On Tuesday, May 27, CEO of Decky Promotions, Dexton Ennis, handed over part proceeds from Magnum Follow Ur Sound to the St Mary Infirmary.

Mayor of Port Maria, Levan Ainsworth Freeman, accepted the cheque, valued at $100,000, on behalf of the Infirmary.

Ennis has been assisting the infirmary for more than 13 years and said he was committed to helping for years to come.

"They say you can tell a nation by the way it treats its sick, helpless and elderly. We often forget these people, and they need to feel loved, cared for and protected. I would encourage other promoters to give back to these vulnerable persons."

The St Mary Infirmary has been around since 1985. It houses more than 80 persons, some of whom are physically and mentally challenged.

Magnum Tonic Wine has teamed up with Decky Promotions to host the Magnum Follow Ur Sound Series, a clash with no profanity or discriminatory lyrics.

The first staging of the series was held on Sunday, April 27, at Sugarman's Beach, St Catherine, and featured popular sounds Bodyguard, Sound Trooper, Flava Unit and Silver Hawk vying for a cash prize of $250,000 and the Follow Ur Sound Championship Belt.

Silver Hawk walked away winner and will face Flava Unit, Innocent and Crazy Chris at Pier One in Montego Bay, July 31 to keep the championship belt.

The event will be hosted by the warlord, Bounty Killer, and will see Wickerman and Major Mackerel facing off in a 45 'shoot-out'.
