It is with this in mind that he has established the Carlyle Foundation which will be involved in offering financial and other assistance to needy students who are potentially high achievers.
Life Fest: Peace and Love Concert will be held on May 2, CarlyleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s birthday, at Backyard, Constant Spring Road . It will feature performances from some of SpraggaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s friends who have joined their voices to the cause and have committed their total support to this worthy cause.
Confirmed to perform on Life Fest are Stephen and Damian Marley, Wayne Wonder, Sizzla, Queen Ifrica, Tanya Stephens, Jah Cure, Chino and I-Octane, along with Spragga himself.
Speaking about the concert, Spragga says the proceeds will be used to kickstart the foundation and start the process of assisting the chosen students.
“Strings will definitely be attached to the scholarships that will be given out,” he stressed, adding that the directors of the foundation are Carlyle’s mother, Sharon Gapor and his aunt, Veleta Grant.
Spragga noted that the beneficiaries, all of whom will be chosen by a special panel, will have to maintain a certain level of performance academically or else the scholarship will have to be reviewed.
Speaking about the upcoming concert, D. Escoffery of DÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Empire Management, organisers and sponsors of the show, informed that the idea for the concert was SpraggaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s brainchild as well as that of Salaam Remi from Boom Tunes.
