Lil Jon Opens Schools in Ghana


Atlanta producer/rapper/DJ Lil Jon continues to use his hip-hop earnings for good, opening a second primary school in the West African nation of Ghana.
AOL reports the Southern beatsmith opened his second school in the village of Mafi Atitekpo. The new school, named Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School, broke ground in December of last year and was officially inaugurated in July 2018, according to Pencils of Promise (PoP), the nonprofit organization working with the “Snap Yo Fingers” artist. PoP helps build schools and increase educational opportunities in developing nations. The school currently has 313 children enrolled.
The first school the “Get Low” rapper developed, Abomayaw D.A. Kindergarten, was built in honor of his late mother, Carrie M. Smith. “Last year in 2017, I went with my family to open up my first Pencils of Promise school in Ghana, and now to have over 300 kids already enrolled in my second school there is incredible! It’s been really fulfilling to see the impact these schools have made on so many of these children’s and families’ futures,” said the rapper.
