French Montana, the rapper behind the ‘Unforgettable’ video shot in Uganda has continued to push his charitable efforts further into Africa.
Recently, the rapper announced that he will be making donations to Uganda’s Suubi Center, which offers medical assistance to mothers with maternity needs and children.
Montana shared with CNN that the proceeds of his recent “Famous” remix featuring Adam Levine will be donated to the center and about $500,000 have been raised so far since the announcement.
“Me coming from Morocco in North Africa, I feel like it should be a soft spot for anyone that has a mother or a child,” Montana said.
“I think that’s got to be one of the worst things, not having the right healthcare. When I went to Uganda I felt obligated to [help]. I feel like every woman and child deserves the right healthcare. It shouldn’t be a privilege it should be a right.”
Ever since his ‘Unforgettable’ single hit in 2017 which had Uganda’s Triplets Ghetto Kids taking part in the video shoot with their remarkable dancing skills, Montana has gone as far as to establish a healthcare platform with Global Citizen.
“My life changed forever after my trip to Uganda and I am excited to continue engaging my fans to use their voices to advocate for universal health coverage and education for those living in extreme poverty,” says the rapper.
