French Montana Donates ‘Famous (Remix)’ Royalties To Ugandan Hospital | Music News
The good cause French Montana started one year ago is still working and going on. The now officially US rapper – he just got the American citizenship recently – has flown back to Africa and released an incredible video for the remix of his hit “Famous“.
Joined by Maroon 5 leader Adam Levine, the two have teamed up for a humanitarian action, that perfectly reflects the sweet clip, which will melt your heart.
Actually, none of the artists appear, as the protagonists of the video are the native Ugandan dancers Triple Ghetto Kids. Discovered by Montana in 2017, when he took to Uganda for the video of his successful single “Unforgettable” with Swae Lee, they are now like his kids, as the rapper has recently stated.
Montana has decided then to release a remix of his single “Famous” and give 100% of the royalties to Suubi Center, to help MAMA HOPE, the organization Montana has worked with to rebuild the hospital; this intervention follows the launch one year ago of his #Unforgettable Healthcare Campaign.
By the way, if you notice, even the original version of “Famous” is a tribute to Africa, as the clip is totally shot in Morocco, his home land:. Montana was born in Rabat and moved very young to US, living in the South Bronx. That’s why he has declared that immigration will be a major theme on his album, which is set to drop in six weeks, after 2017 Jungle Rules.
The proceeds of the remixed single will help to expand construction, give residents access to water and provide health access to 58 villages. According to CNN the project has already reached half a million.
