Kaymbo Shines brings light to Stroke month

SHINESEvery once in a while in the music realm it’s nice to see a fresh face. Especially one with a purpose.

Canadian hip hop artist Kaymbo Shines hailing from in between Atlanta and Montreal has just released his debut single and video “Good To Me,” featuring vocals from D’amyka.

The song is uplifting and motivational right from the beginning, and has an undertone of appreciation for one another and the things we give to each other. Of course it also refers to counting blessings from the Lord and thanks for the good done to him in his life.

Above his self reflection in the song, it’s also purposed for the recovery and awareness of his mother, who suffered a tragic stroke in Africa and fell into a coma in 2012.

For this reason, Shines now advocates for stroke awareness and donates proceeds from his music to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. He’s also  spreading awareness of recognizing strokes at the first sign, using the FAST method.

The acronym stands for Facial drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulties and Time.

  • Facial drooping: A section of the face, usually only on one side, that is drooping and hard to move
  • Arm weakness: The inability to raise one’s arm fully
  • Speech difficulties: An inability or difficulty to understand or produce speech
  • Time: Time is of the essence when having a stroke, and an immediate call to emergency services or trip to the hospital is recommended.StrokeMonth_eraser_ENG460x102_grey_ad_v2
