In light of the recent upsurge of violence against children that has plagued our nation, members of the entertainment fraternity and other concerned citizens have joined forces to launch S.T.O.P.; Students Taking On Prevention. A self funded effort aimed at denouncing violence and bringing about awareness.
The effort will see members of the dancehall community alongside members of the Christian entertainment community, taking part in audio and video clips denouncing violence and pleading with children to be more vigilant. The clips, which will be aired on all local networks, will also provide preventive tips to both children and parents alike.
Although the number is expected swell, involved parties so far include the likes of the Swallowfield All Age Principal and faculty members, (the school Ananda Dean used to attend) Rev. Al Miller, Mrs. Betty Ann Blaine (Head of Hear the Children Cry), dancehall luminaries Buju Banton, Macka Diamond, Lady G, and Merciless, alongside members of the gospel entertainment fraternity such as Ryan Mark, Prodigal, Omari, Goddy Goddy and Papa San.
Audio and video clips will be shot on Saturday October 11th between the hours of 3pm-5:30pm, at Buju Banton’s Studio, 10 Carlisle Ave off Red Hills Road.
