The recording artiste, Teejay will be on his turf and performing on the renowned Reggae Sumfest 2023. The artiste says it’s always a pleasure to perform in his hometown Montego Bay.

In the meantime, Teejay continues altruistic activities while took the Project Star Tour together with fellow deejays Spragga Benz and Agent Sasco, rising reggae talent, Ras-I, his Warner Records team [lead by Rah Nurse] Solid Agency manager Sharon Burke and publicist Judith Bodley.

He spoke with Keith Duncan, co-chair and project sponsor of Project STAR, Group CEO of JMMB and immediate past president of the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica [PSOJ] about taking the programme to his community of Glendevon in St. James to benefit the young people. The team toured Central Kingston communities, home to the warring ‘Genasyde’ and ‘Darksyde’ gangs. The artists interacted with the children and community members of all ages, stopping often to chat, take pictures, dance and DJ.

Teejay and the young generations drifting together

Project STAR (Social Transformation and Renewal) is a social and economic transformation initiative created by the PSOJ in partnership with the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and driven by communities to bring about societal transformation through targeted interventions in under-resourced areas of Jamaica. There is consultation and collaboration with community stakeholders to identify needs, then work with partners - public, private, NGOs, multilaterals, individuals at home and diaspora - to connect communities with the resources and services agreed in consultation.

Teejay views initiatives like these as imperative to building a better Jamaica where citizens of all ages will thrive. He was impressed that Project Star is currently working in East Downtown Kingston and is already doing work in Sav-la-mar and Salt Spring in Montego Bay.
