Mr. Vegas Music Announces Food Drive and Concert to Feed Children housed at Mustard Seed Communities
Kingston, Jamaica (October 30, 2014) – CEO of Mr. Vegas Music (MV Music), Clifford Smith, more popularly known as Mr. Vegas, has announced a food drive and campaign to collect non-perishable items and help raise funds for children housed at Mustard Seed Communities (MSC).
MSC is a faith based non-profit organization founded by Monsignor Gregory Ramkissoon under the principle of caring in 1978 and the organization has remained committed to helping those in need.
Today, MSC serves over 500 children, young adults and families who belong to the most vulnerable groups in our society. The population of their homes includes children and young adults with disabilities, children affected by HIV/AIDS and teen mothers along with their babies. MSC also manages a number of community outreach programmes to combat poverty and provide education.
Mr. Smith has been supporting MSC since his first visit there some eight years ago but wants to do more for the organization. His goal now is to raise enough food and funds to provide three daily meals for children housed at MSC for the next year.
“MV Musc is pleased to partner with the MSC for this food drive,” stated Mr. Smith, “It is difficult for MSC to provide for so many children with all their other additional costs. We want to ensure the children get proper nourishment , especially those who are on medication, so we are happy to contribute to this great cause.”
The Food Drive will be held from November 1 to December 12 . Collection bins will be placed at Megamart outlets islandwide and General Food Supermarket in Liguanea. Individuals are being asked to to support this drive by donating the following needed items :

Reggae Recording Artist Nesbeth Announce His Soon To Be Released EP Titled “Victory”
In this exciting time of reggae resurgence, Entertainment Soul announces Nesbeth’s highly anticipated upcoming “Victory” EP.
Although it may feel as if the conscious reggae star took a musical hiatus, Nesbeth has steadily continued his musical journey by drawing from life and penning an arsenal of new music. Recently signing with the London based label Entertainment Soul, Nesbeth is feeling revitalized and ready to share himself through his music with the world. “I see the songs as parts of my body, each song plays a significant role”
Delighted on the creative control given to him by his new label, the “Victory” EP represents a more mature side of Nesbeth. When recording “Victory” it is evident Nesbeth was on a mission to uplift the people and assist listeners to find a sense of motivation and perseverance through his music. On this 5 track EP each single has a special message, the lead single “Taste Victory” is an inspiring single that many can relate when feeling like they have hit rock bottom yet, is able to taste that victorious day approaching.
The fourth track (and instant ‘gratification’ track for buyers of the iTunes pre-order 4th Nov) “Hundu Lay Lay” gives you a warm & soulful feel of Africa with it’s uplifting tribal drum and vocal rhythms. But it speaks of trouble in the land and enormous strength among it’s people, drawing eerie echoes of current affairs, whilst Nesbeth chants “Hundu Lay Lay”, throughout the chorus.
A joint collaboration from some of reggae music prominent producers, Nesbeth also took on a role as producer while recording his “Victory” EP. In conjunction with M.Shaw, Nesbeth wrote the five tracks each showing a different style. The EP was proudly produced by DJ Frass (Taste Victory), Merrick Shaw (Even Though)and Nesbeth himself. Nesbeth hopes that his musical message will be heard and shared.
“I want to make music that will stand the test of time. With Victory I want to anoint the oppressor and the oppressed. I hope all these songs reach out, to the masses and inspire the nation to strive for their victory. Word sound is power.”
Distributed by Zojak Worlwide, “Victory” EP will be available on all digital platforms on Monday November 17th, 2014 and will shortly announce the immediate released track on all pre-orders.
