Audiomack has gifted the Buju Banton Foundation $5000 following a rejection from the Jamaican government.
The New York based music streaming service made the announcement via their official website earlier today.
The, “giving back to artists and their communities is a cornerstone of the Audiomack ethos. With that, Audiomack has linked up with the Buju Banton Foundation, donating $5,000 toward resources for underserved youth in Jamaica.”
Buju Foundation director Rosemary Duncan, took to social media to express gratititude for the gesture.
“Given the economic moment and its impact on individuals and organizations, the Buju Banton Foundation salutes Audiomack for opening its heart and hands to vulnerable boys. The donation will be invested in resources that will prepare them for a better and brighter future. We thank Audiomack for giving a helping hand,” she said.
Audiomack’s donation comes just days after the Charities Authority of Jamaica denied Buju’s registration. According to the government entity, Buju was not deemed “fit and proper,” by their guidlines.
Buju Banton fired back at the organization saying, “I BET I am way more honest than all of these fools put together????.”
