As music and fashion comes from the same place of creativity and walk hand in hand, Ninja Crown announces his signature t shirt line “Talk Up” by Cooyah.
The shirts slogan is clear, precise and simple, “Talk Up”. It is focused on inspiring people to Talk Up. Let it be a conversation starter, Talk Up about injustice, Talk Up about the need for the the less fortunate, Talk Up for the Voiceless.
“As a selector and MC I use the microphone to make people feel good, entertain and ease their minds of their day to day stress. But it is very important to me that we collectively use our voice to “Talk Up” for the injustice and things we see happening and don’t agree with in order to live a better quality of life. Music takes me around the world and in front of millions of people and I’ve realized the power of the microphone, the power of our voices and the power in social awareness. Let’s minimize the frivolous concerns and talk up for the less fortunate or injustice in order to create some form of change” says NinjaCrown.
“A perfect example of what my TShirt line is all about is Inner Circle and Kabaka Pyramid – “We the People Haffi Talk.”.
“But talking is not enough the MC added, I would like to partner with Kingston Public Hospital to access needs and donate a portion of T shirt sales to them. Something as small as medical gloves, bandages, anti bacterial soap dispensers are needed. These are just some of the day to day necessities doctors nurses are working without”. stated Rohan “Ninja Crown” Henry
From July 29th to August 5th, Ninja will be in Jamaica to help spread the word. The venture between Ninja Crown and Cooyah is definitely one, which will make some noise and unite many worldwide!
