With the help of American singer Adam Levine, the Moroccan-American rapper is raising a generous amount of money for the Suubi Health Center, a maternity and children’s health clinic in Uganda.
Karim Kharbouch, the singer’s real name, had already raised more than $500,000 for the center in 2017 when he shot his hit single “Unforgettable” in Uganda. During his time in the African country, Montana visited a hospital where he met women and children without healthcare.
The 33-year-old artist has recorded a remix with Levine of his single “Famous,” shot in Chefchaouen, Morocco, featuring to raise more funds for medical services in rural Uganda.
The benefits from the song—dedicated to Montana’s grandmother who died in 1988—will go to the maternity and pediatric health center. Kharbouch has been helping rebuild the health center through his philanthropic association, MAMA HOPE.
“100% of proceeds from the FAMOUS Remix will go towards finishing the hospital. Soon it would serve 58 villages!! 450 thousand people will have health care. We started from 56 thousand thank you to everybody that was part of this beautiful mission!” wrote Montana on his Instagram page.

To complete the Suubi “Hope” Health Center, Montana’s association is seeking $225,000.
Besides helping the Ugandan community, Montana has also been very committed to his homeland, Morocco. The rapper is continuing his service in his hometown Casablanca, through his work with the PanAfrican Movement and CARE Morocco, which ensures that the children of Casablanca have full access to a quality education and healthcare.
Born in Morocco, French Montana spent the first 13 years of his life in the kingdom before immigrating to the US with his family. His love of Morocco, though, is never hidden.
