Beenie Man will headline a concert tonight alongside blazing new stars, I Octane and Khago, in aid of the families of the flood victims who died in Sandy Park during the inclement weather caused by the passage of Tropical Depression Nicole.


The concert will be held at the Sandy Park Basic School. One of the concert's organisers is Drummy from the Ruff Kut band.

"We're raising money to assist the families of the six people who died, and to help with funeral expenses. We will also be opening an account to assist with donations to other flood victims," Drummy, who is a resident of Sandy Park where the tragedy occurred, told

"I was in bed at about 4 a.m. when I got the call that it happened. It is very tragic, one of the lady's sons played football with us just a couple of nights before the's really sad."

Sandy Park is a community located in Liguanea, St. Andrew. On September 28th, a house located on the lip of the Sandy Gully collapsed and crashed into the raging waters.  Among the persons killed were three children and two adults, including a woman. The body of a 14-year-old boy, who residents said was also in the house, was found tangled in steel on the roof of the house the following day.
