Few weeks ago, French Montana $100k to a hospital in Uganda. No, that’s not where the story begins. Early this year, French Montana jetted into Uganda, teamed up with Rae Sremmurd’s Swae lee and did a video for their song ‘Unforgetable’. The video went ahead to be one of the most watched on Youtube and set new records for the Morocco-born rapper. The video featured the ‘Ghetto Kids’, famous for their performance in the Sitya Loss video.

During his stay in Uganda, French went to ‘Suubi Hope Health Center’ which is under the ‘Mama Hope’ organization. French did learn about the organisation through a mutual friend and went to Suubi Health Centre spending some time with women and the kids in the place. When his video was out, he started an online dance challenge dubbed “Unforgetabledancechallenge”. He also called on people to help contribute to “Mama Hope” and to set the ball rolling, he gave a hundred thousand dollars in cash to the organisation. The money was given to Suubi Health Centre.

Another Hollywood star, The Weeknd, has also followed in French Montana’s footsteps and contributed a similar amount of money to the organisation. It’s been confirmed that his contribution will be used in helping a maternity facility in Budondo. The organisation tweeted their appreciation earlier today, before French took to his gram to thank The Weeknd.
