Lil Jon just blessed Ghana with a primary school

Dedicated to the Asuogyaman community

Artists have always shown an admirable understanding of converging cultures from a variety of musical influences and that there’s a need to give back. Through their charitable foundations and even child adoption, their impact is felt beyond mere musical avenues. Though Lil Jon may not be the most showy or popular artist given his preference for producing and DJing, he has left his impression across the globe. But perhaps now more than ever, he just cemented a place in the hearts of Ghanaians after he recently opened a primary school for children in Asuogyaman District in the Eastern Region who used to study under trees.

Commissioning the fully furnished classroom block, Lil Jon accompanied by his wife, Nicole Smith and son, Nathan Smith explained that he funded the project through Pencils Of Promise NGO, in memory and in honor of his late mother, Carrie M. Smith whose birthday falls in October.
