Jonathan Smith aka Lil Jon the King of Crunk is also the King of giving back. On Saturday (Oct. 14) the legendary producer shared a few pics on social media of Abomayaw D.A. Kindergarten, a school block he helped fund along with education organisation Pencils of Promise. The block features three fully furnished classrooms, lavatories and an office. The school replaces a: battered, rundown, old building. Previously, children were subjected to attend school in sheds and would be sent home on rainy days. It also caused farmers to refrain from sending their children to school.
Speaking to STARR FM : “This is the first project we’ve done together of this kind and it is amazing to see the community come out to support [it],” he said. “I just feel like I’m lost for words of how amazing it feels to give the community something like this school.” “If you can provide appropriate environment for education it can make learning very easy for them,” he added. “I’m glad I can help facilitate that for these kids looking at where they came from (open basically sheds outside). You can imagine the heat and the obstruction. Now they have a well building if it rains.”
