Ninja Man gives back to taxi cab operators

Downsound recording artiste Ninja Man, is in high spirits as he promotes his Taxi Drivers' Appreciation Day scheduled for Saturday.

The event will be held for the very first time at Turtle River Park in Ocho Rios, St Ann and will feature a number popular reggae and dancehall acts, including George Nooks, Josie Wales, Admiral Tibet, Popcaan, Gem Myers, Peter Metro, Admiral Bailey, Professor Nuts, Nature, Nitty Kutchie, Ghost, Ishawna, Harry Toddler, Specialist, Don Husky and Naazir.

Ninja Man said the event is his way of giving back something to the hard-working taxi drivers of Jamaica.

"I've been the dancehall champion for 28 years, and in the early part of my career I used to travel all over the island in taxi cabs all the time. A lot of people don't realise how valuable the service that taxi drivers and bus drivers provide is. It is because of them why school-children can go to school and adults can go to work. Remember a lot of people are not able to own their own cars so they have to rely on public transport. So I want to show them my appreciation by keeping this event," he said.

The event will also feature a taxi operators singing and deejaying contest as well as a taxi operator's raffle.

"The winner of the singing and deejaying competition will get a recording contract with Downsound Records. We are also giving the taxi drivers a chance to win a brand-new car with the raffle," the deejay said. "This event will be a success, the people of Ocho Rios know that whenever Ninja Man and Downsound put on an event in their town it is always a great event and this one will be no different. There will be lots of rides for the children and lots of great entertainment. I'm confident that the Taxi Drivers' Appreciation Day, will be well supported."
