French Montana Uganda

Bronx rapper French Montana has been known to be involved in various philanthropic efforts over the years. To no surprise, his latest effort comes in the form of a song. On August 25th, French released the video for his song “Famous (Remix)” featuring Adam Levine (of Maroon 5). French announced that all proceeds from the song will be donated to a hospital in Uganda, where the video was filmed.

The “Famous (Remix) video stars African children of all ages, joyfully dancing throughout their villages and towns. Also, neither French Montana nor Adam Levine appear in the video, as they allow it to focus soley on the children. The video showcases the Ugandan people’s ability to be joyus and celebrate life, regardless of circumstance.

Additionally, French Montana announced that all of the money from digital downloads of the song will be donated to the Suubi Center. The Suubi center was a struggling maternity and children’s hospital in Uganda that French has been working with.

Helping Suubi

 “This year, Suubi will be working with a population of over 450,000 people. -Many of their unique services are the only ones offered in the region. Through smart social entrepreneurship, French and team’s funding has enabled Suubi to jump it’s locally generated income from 31% to 56%. Construction is in progress on the main hospital block, mini-theater / antenatal ward, bathrooms, staff houses and more. Just this week alone Suubi immunized 1,500 people.” reads a video caption on French Montana’s Youtube channel.

French also took to Twitter to thank Adam Levine for assisting with the track and its philanthropic efforts. Check out French’s tweet, and the video for “Famous (Remix)” below.
