Dancehall veteran Beenie Man has donated a community center to the Waterhouse community, which he named in honor of his late mother and grandfather. The center, called The Solomon & Lelieth Community Center, is now in development and is a community initiative backed by the Beenie Man Foundation, which will serve residents of the Waterhouse and nearby communities, according to a statement on the Grammy winner’s Instagram page.

“It is dedicated and named after my Mom and my Mentor.” he states.

The center is being developed in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church territory in the community, which belongs to his grandfather Solomon. The ‘King of Dancehall’ said that he had a great influence on the development of the place where he first studied and learned about Rastafari and Black Consciousness.

According to Beenie Man, in a video uploaded on his account, Solomon played a major role in his music development.

He said that the community center’s main goal is to create an environment that will help young people develop within the Waterhouse Community. Beenie Man understands the challenges that young people face in these difficult times. Their new norm is now virtual learning, he wrote.

He said the community center would provide the necessary access to help young people from the Waterhouse Society and neighboring communities learn and help them better adapt to this unfortunate change in their lives.
