With it being his highest charting single to date, French Montana is most definitely in celebration mode over the success "Unforgettable" has brought him, and the opportunities it opens up for him in the industry moving forward. But he appears to be just as enamored of the notion that while working on the video for the song he was moved to make a contribution that will change the trajectory of hundreds of thousands of lives.
Back in May, it was announced that the Bronx rapper had donated $100,000 to the Mama Hope Organization. He came into knowledge of the community health agency while shooting "Unforgettable" in the town of Kampala, Uganda. By all accounts, his experience linking up with Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee and the local dance sensation Triplets Ghetto Kids was unforgettable. But his memory of the moment he pledged the hefty donation for the enhancement of the Suubi Health Center in Budondo was jogged this week, when Mama Hope director Nyla Rodgers took to social media to share the progress they've made with the help of his funds. And he became overcome by a deeper feeling of accomplishment once again.
"WOW !! I love hip hop and the platform it gave me. Things like this make all the blood sweat and tears worth it. I really had to stop talking and take action. Still amazed at the process!" French wrote in response to a recording of one of the new Suubi facilities that Rodgers posted. Rodgers explained that what he was looking at was the staff quarters that will allow the town's doctors, nurses, and health professionals to live closer to their work. She also showed the progress made on the center's extension that she projected will service up to 286,000 people.
"I just wanted you to know how much it means to me that you decided to come to this beautiful community and bring health care to all of these people," Rodgers said.
