Dancehall superstar Mavado has shot down accusations that he has not used Drake's US$25,000 donation to build a library in Cassava Piece, St. Andrew. He explained that the 'learning cente' has long been completed.

"That is an old song which Flexx did in the heat of the moment, and that is not even true. Everybody in Cassava Piece knows that the learning centre is built; it is more like a community centre and not a library, but the building is there. The learning centre was built from the ground up by members of the same community, it was a community project and the first week's paybill for the building was 300,000 so the building itself cost way more than US$25,000, so we give thanks to Drake for his kind gesture," Mavado said.

He explained that a group of benefactors from Europe had already commissioned a library in the community so there was no need to duplicate their efforts.

"Some Europeans built a library up by the All Age school so there was no need to build another library," he explained.

Mavado said that he is devoted to charity, and funded the construction of a new wing of the Cassava Piece basic school over seven years ago.

"I have donated to charity and I will continue to donate. I keep charitable events, I have given money and items to the Maxfield Children's Home, and given computers to schools all over the island. I will continue to give despite whatever criticism," he said.
