Lil Jon Constructs Classroom Block In Ghana

American Rapper, Record producer and DJ, Jonathan Smith, popularly known as Lil Jon on Thursday October 12, 2017 commissioned a three unit KG Classroom block with ancillary office and washroom facilities at Abomayaw, a rural community in Asuogyaman district of the Eastern region of Ghana.

The constructed classroom block has ended several years of struggle for conducive learning environment for children in the community.

Commissioning the fully furnished classroom block, the American Music Icon, Lil Jon, accompanied by his wife, Nicole Smith and Son Nathan Smith explained that he funded the project through Pencils of Promise, an NGO, in Memory and in Honour of his late Mother, Carrie M. Smith whose birthday falls in October.

The 46-year-old Musician in an interview with the Starr News said “this is the first Project we’ve done together of this kind and it is amazing to see the community come out to support and the appreciation they are showing for us building the school and I just feel like I’m lost for words of how amazing it feels to give the community something like this school.”

He added that children in their early ages learn so many things therefore the need to get a conducive learning environment.

“Kindergarten kids at their age they keep up so much stuff so if you can provide appropriate environment for education it can make learning very easy for them and 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 and now they have a well building if it rains.”

The musician who is a member of the East Side Boys and reportedly worth $25 million stated that his family chose Ghana for the project because they are black Americans and thus bias for Ghana.

The community, later presented valuable traditional cloths and beads to the Smith Family in appreciation to their kind gesture.
