Aidonia delivers in Bahamas, Suriname

Set to head educational initiative

Despite a more passive persona and renewed spirit, dancehall artiste Aidonia has certainly not tempered his zeal for the fans who continue to crave his musical offerings.

The entertainer recently delivered a pair of exhilarating performances to concert goers in Bahamas and Suriname.

In Nassau, Bahamas, Aidonia whipped up a frenzy-filled set to the large outpouring with song like Fi di Jockey and Run Road among others.

With very little rest and a hectic schedule, he was off to the Dutch-speaking Republic of Suriname as headliner for a concert alongside label-mate Deablo and several local acts. Staged at the Flamboyant Park in the capital city Paramaribo, the Jamaican did not disappoint in spite of the apparent language barrier as fans came out in droves to get a glimpse of the JOP boss.

"It is always a pleasure performing for the fans, especially the international ones who don't speak the same language as you, yet they know every word to your songs. This bears testament and speaks volumes to the power of music," Aidonia said.

Locally, aside from adding the final touches of his 1Voice clothing line, Aidonia is gearing up to spearhead a new educational initiative that will see him and members of his camp doing more philanthropic work aimed at rendering assistance to children from various communities and socio-economic backgrounds.

"As an individual and an artiste, there are many changes that are coming from me, and this is just another step in the direction of positivity and upliftment. The youth are the future of this nation, so we have to nurture and care for them in any way we can, be it economical, financial, social or otherwise," he added.
