With great concern about crime, especially in western Jamaica, entertainers Mackie Conscious and a team of musicians has collaborated with Queen Ifrika who also hails from Montego Bay and who had similar concerns to host a free concert at Dump up beach Sunday December 4 2016 starting at 3 pm.

This event is designed to have the major Jamaican recording artistes both home and abroad participate in donating their time to solidify a cry from the music fraternity that a change is needed. So far, over 50 name brand entertainers are expected to make themselves available live or via video link on a large screen. This list includes Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths, Diana King, Tony Rebel, Queen Ifrika, Mackie Conscious, Spice, Ninja Man, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Benie Man, I Octane, Jimmy Cliff, Mutabaruka, Hezron, Carlene Davis, Lt Stichie and Kevin Dowenswell.

The St James Police, the Parish Council and the UDC have already given full support.

"We intend to have an Entertainers Motorcade and reasoning session on the day of the event through the troubled communities. Following the event we anticipate with the help of corporate Jamaica, to launch an initiative to revisit the communities with an offer of support with academic advancements and skills training to the youth.

A third imitative to be launched later as it relates to keeping an eye on the entire entertainment coming from the fraternity will be to better assist in the inspiration of the youth and promote quality of music, impacting ultimately Brand Jamaic," a release from the organizers stated.
