New York based Jamaican publicist, Shuzzr, who has been making various headlines throughout his career is using the spotlight to not just grow his public relations firm but garner support for charities based in the Caribbean.
Shuzzr who immigrated to the United States in 2012 is an alumnus of Calabar High School in Jamaica and The College at Brockport here in New York secured a major career recognition in 2020 which featured in Billboard Magazine earlier this year.
The public relations guru also saw other publications such as The Jamaica Star, CVM TV, Buzz Caribbean, Digital Journal and others either sharing the story or carrying other features centered around the publicist milestone and career in media.
With the huge media buzz, Shuzzr launched his ‘Pride In The Islands’ initiative which is geared towards supporting various charities throughout the Caribbean and recently made a donation of $700usd to the Larry Chang Foundation based in Jamaica.
“We have to find creative ways of developing not just ourselves but others around us. Not many will get the opportunity but where you can effect change, do it. That is why I created the initiative and every time we reach a certain threshold; we will donate to a charity organization in the Caribbean. ” Shuzzr added.
The initiative which seeks to help bring various kinds of support to charity groups throughout the Caribbean, is just one of the ways the publicist plans to give back.
“I have been blessed countless of times and the fact that I’m still here in 2020, I have to give back. With Jamaica opening its first women shelter recently, the focus is now geared towards providing various items that would be of assistance to them. Already a few individuals have provided items so hopefully in short order I can contact the Jamaica Consulate here in New York which should be able to aid/arrange delivery, he further adds.
It was just recently the publicist who represents Ikaya spoke with Billboard and New York Post rebuking various claims surrounding Dexta Daps and Ikaya’s concert which attracted hundreds of concertgoers amidst the ongoing pandemic.
A self-made media mogul on the rise, Shuzzr currently handles public relations for Sharkies Seafood & Plantation Smokehouse in Jamaica and has worked with some of Reggae-dancehall heavy weights namely Ikaya, RDX, Vershon, Tifa, Dovey Magnum, Erup, Blak Ryno, Gaza Kim, Lisa Hyper and many others.
