The Weeknd giving back - Abel Tesfaye donates USD 100,000 to health center in Uganda
The Ethiopian Canadian artiste made the donation to the facility in Budondo, Uganda after finding out about French Montana’s work with the health center, reports E! News.

The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) was inspired to support the center after learning of his friend French Montana’s work with Global Citizen and Mama Hope to help raise awareness for Suubi and the people of Uganda.

Montana also donated $100,000 to Suubi and launched an online campaign called #Unforgettable that has helped fund a blood bank, premature incubators, cribs and other maternity supplies.

The Weeknd’s donation enabled Suubi to complete construction of the first floor of the maternity clinic and increase its capacity of serving 56,000 people to 260,000 people.

LA artist Awol Erizku surrounded by his work. The Ethiopia-born artist, is also responsible for Beyoncé’s iconic pregnancy shoot

(CNN) – LA artist Awol Erizku’s first European exhibition ‘Make America Great Again’ has opened in London — but if you are expecting a pro-Trump theme, think again.
The Ethiopia-born artist, who is also responsible for Beyoncé’s iconic pregnancy shoot, shares his thoughts on the current political situation in America through art — and he’s not worried about hurting anyone’s feelings.

“As he [Trump] rose to power, I just felt more and more compelled to make a body of work to say something about his rise,” Erizku told CNN in an interview before the exhibition opened.
