The popular boy band Stagajah remained true to their words and had presented musical instruments to the Jubilee Catholic Secondary School in Port Moresby this week.
This first-of-its-kind initiative was made possible after the renowned band held a concert in Port Moresby, “Juca Go Back Night” and committed 50% of the funds raised to the Arts Department of the Jubilee Secondary School.
This week the Stagajah band presented 15 acoustic guitars valued at around K9,000 to the school which they had purchased from the funds they raised.
“This is the first of its kind whereby we have members of certain bands in the city where they’ve gotten this initiative to be able give back to a school where they’ve come out from.”
“In the last two years, we’ve actually spent quite a lot of money in buying equipment that should allow students to learn what they need to learn particularly in music,” said School Principal, Mrs Barbara Miles.
Mrs Miles thanked the Stagajah band and the other supporting artists who made it possible for the school to receive much needed musical instruments for the students to use.
Meanwhile Stagajah band songwriter and rapper, Gaiix said that they started their community service initiative last year when they donated four (4) acoustic guitars to Cheshire Homes.
He said that they chose Jubilee Catholic Secondary since he is an Ex-Jubilee student himself and two of his other band members are also ex-Lasallians.
Present at the school to do the presentation of the acoustic guitars was the Stagajah band members and Rhee who performed on the concert night as well.
Gaiix added that they will continue to give back to the community through their music.
