Flippa Mafia gives back to Trench Town High
It’s the Christmas season, and while some may refer to it as the ‘silly season’, it is also the time to spread joy and goodwill and that’s exactly what the Flossing King, Flippa Mafia plans to do.
Flippa, who says he is really a philanthropist at heart, will be channeling his energy into a school fete for the Trench Town High School.
“As entertainers it is our duty to give back ... and if you really check it a lot of us donate to worthy causes. The public may not hear about it, but that’s because we don’t like to pose up for picture and send it to newspaper every time we do what we are supposed to do by helping the less fortunate,” Flippa said.
Flippa was full of praise for the artistes who participate in the various high school tours which see artistes in performance at various schools across the island and emphasising positive messages.
“We have to get the youths to understand the importance of an education and staying in school. We need the school-girls to erase the idea of teenage pregnancy and replace it with total focus on their school work. Education must always come first,” he declared passionately.
The fete takes place on December 12 and all proceeds will go towards the Trench Town High School.
