Andrew Dixon, more popularly known as ‘DJ Slow Motion’, of Motion Vybz Sounds, has decided to do his part in the fight against COVID-19 in Jamaica.
He has donated the money made from the first quarter of his latest project, the High rhythm, to support this cause.
The funds were donated directly to the Ministry of Health and Wellness via its official COVID-19 website.
“I believe that it is my duty as a musical ambassador for Jamaica to give back in any way possible, and this pandemic presents no better timing. Many influencers have been donating and I hope the trend will continue,” said DJ Slow Motion.
The producer, who is based in New York, shares that the virus has taken a toll on his city and while dealing with the possibility of more fatalities around him, he could not ignore that Jamaica needs a helping hand.
“The way Jamaica has been dealing with this outbreak is commendable, the only way to beat this is as a unit. The nation looks to its politicians, church leaders and musicians for leadership most of the time, and as such, we need to play our part,” he said.
“It takes a lot of humility to donate your own money that you worked hard for to help a nation. But we can do it. We need to ensure that we do all that we can to ensure our healthcare workers and our families are safe and by donating, we are helping.”
He has a new project under way, the Hitman rhythm, which is a compilation of tracks from several dancehall acts.
The rhythm is slated to be released in the coming months with hopes of dominating the summer season.
