The Godfather of Canadian Hip Hop is coming home. Thursday, August 25, 11 AM Scarborough Town Centre (beside Maestro’s Star on the Walk Of Fame). Maestro Fresh Wes will bring home a special inspirational event. Giving back has always been a part of the iconic artist’s DNA, never forgetting where he came from. Maestro hopes to encourage young students, parents, and educators to aim for an awesome upcoming school year. The event is inspired by Maestro’s popular children’s book, “Stick To Your Vision: Young Maestro Goes To School” (co-written by Rhodora Meliton-Vanderpool, illustrations by Leon “Eklipz” Robinson).
“When sticking to your vision, it’s important to reach for the sky and by doing that, you will be shooting for the stars.”
Maestro Fresh Wes has never forgotten his home city of Scarborough. His journey is deep down personal. The light of this journey has been his own experiences and relationships. The presence of family structure, mentorship, and inspirational elementary school teachers has stayed with the artist. Maestro believes given the right support, kids can work through difficulties to greatness. Maestro Fresh Wes will continue to lead by example, celebrate learning and give back to the next generation and the community that has given him so much.
Meet the iconic Hip Hop artist, actor & author and hear his inspirational stories on August 25th.
Maestro’s team will be on hand, handing out backpacks & notebooks with live music by DJ Mel Boogie. Maestro will also sign copies of his book for sale at the event.
