/24-7PressRelease/ - HOUSTON, TX, October 10, 2007 - During the times where Hip Hop has come under tremendous scrutiny and criticism for its lyrics, images and depictions; it's refreshing to find someone using their power and persuasion to help shed light on world affairs. This someone happens to be 15-year old J Xavier. Crowned Hip Hop's new "Prince of the South", J Xavier will headline a benefit concert, Megafest Unplugged 2007 in Nairobi, Kenya on November 1st-7th. J Xavier will become the youngest Hip Hop star to done an international concert and in return feels it's his duty to show the positivity and influence that rappers have internationally.
J Xavier's career has skyrocketed since his 2004 debut and the 2006 release "Young Prince of Tha South" on Noo Day Entertainment/Music World Music. Currently the acting bug has bitten him with roles in MTV's Super Sweet Sixteen Movie and the upcoming film "A Good Man is Hard to Find" with Debrah Cox and Mary Mary.He is also preparing for his sophomore project slated to be released Winter 2007. "Youth in other countries look-up to rappers as entertainers. They want to emulate our style, culture and dress," the eloquent 15-year old stated. "I want to do something positive to give back to their country in support."
Giving back is truly an understatement of the purpose of Megafest Unplugged's philanthropic mission. Over 5,000 attendees including the President of Kenya, Hon. Mwai Kibaki, will be present at this star studded concert orchestrated by Twelve Entertainment and Zomba Gospel Label Group. Other entertainers include Bobby Jones (BET Gospel) and Byron Cage. Broadcasted live to a nation of over 21 million listeners via Hope fm radio, the concert will serve as the platform for raising money and awareness towards the town of Kibera which has the largest slums in Africa. Funding raised from the concert will go to purchase mobile restroom facilities for the 10 million slum dwellers without and to purchase sanitary items for the young women denied schooling during menstruation. The Vice President of Kenya has dubbed this event as the bread and butter of the year as people are hopeless and the messages and musical celebration from the artists would be timely for the disenfranchised communities.
"It is an honor to represent my country, my generation and our music in Kenya," said J Xavier. J Xavier has become a young philanthropist of his time proving yet again that Hip Hop isn't dead and its future looks better than ever.
