Resurgent deejay Lloyd Brammer better known as Bramma ‘Di Gorilla’ last weekend got a pleasant surprise from officials of the Calabar High School Parents Teachers Association (P.T.A) during a visit to lend support to their fundraising campaign.
An avid supporter of his alma mater, the S-Lock Entertainment recording artiste while preparing for his performance, was presented with a Certificate of Recognition by the school for his contribution to the Jamaica Music Industry and dedication to the upliftment of the academic institution.
Amidst his spirited performance, Bramma took time out to thank the entire school body for the award ‘even the teacher who told him he wouldn’t amount to anything in life’ and pledged his continued support for the Red Hills Road based institution.
Alluding to the award Bramma in a release to the media says, “This is a great move by Calabar to honour its past students, not only the academicians but also those who are making an impact locally and globally in other sectors of business. Other institutions should look into adopting similar programs to recognize so many of the unsung heroes of this country. Not everyone will be a scholar but we can all contribute positively to society in other ways and I’s good to see something is taking notice… so big up Calabar again!”
Meanwhile, after premiering the official medley video for the Stephen McGregor produced ‘Cha Cha Bwoy’ and JA’s productions ‘Meet Mi Pon Di Way’ last weekend. The ‘Gorilla Dreadlocks Rasta’ singer is now making final preparations for a series of stints cross the Caribbean and Europe heading into the Christmas season. On the international scene Bramma’s melodic ballad ‘Wah Gwaan Mi Darlin’ on the Rising Sun Rhythm compilation has hit the iTunes Top 10 Album chart and continues to gain increased momentum.
