There are few female artistes more aware of their responsibilities to be an agent for social change than Jannett Scott aka Lady Luscious.

For several years, the Canadian-based reggae artiste has been involved in the organisation of the annual Mini Miss Port Antonio pageant that helps to build the self-esteem, self-confidence and poise of young females in Portland.


"My major concern is to provide more opportunities for youth, and to show them there are other avenues they can pursue in their lives," she said. Lady Luscious is the President of JAAMM Idol Talent Competition which is held in memory of her daughter Aleisha Ashley and best friend Monique Mcknight, who died tragically several years ago.

Despite her own personal tragedies, she feels obligated to uplift young women in Jamaica, and she uses her musical abilities to convey a message of peace and personal empowerment. She is also using the upcoming pageant to promote her latest single.

"I am really looking forward to the event, I will also be performing my latest single Thank God For Blessing Me. I will also be shooting a video for this song ," she said.


The pageant, to be held on Sunday at Hotel Tim Bamboo in Port Antonio, is a partnership between Scott's JAAMM Idol and Mini Miss Port Antonio conceptualiser Sonia Patterson. The artiste will also be sponsoring the winner of the annual pageant by providing $10,000 to help offset academic expenses through her company Women Ah Run Tings Promotion. She will also be helping to judge the contest.

Born in St Elizabeth, Lady Luscious is a woman of many talents. She appeared in the Canadian movie, Jumping the Gun, released last May and won the Best Reggae Singjay/Deejay title at at the third annual Reggae Exclusive Recognition Award 2014 in Toronto.
