Hitting the fairway for a very good cause, GRAMMY® Award-winning, global megastar DJ Khaled excitedly presents the inaugural WE THE BEST FOUNDATION GOLF CLASSIC on Thursday July 20 in Miami, FL sponsored by Jordan brand. The perennial hitmaker will be joined by an A-list cohort of players, teeing off to support various charitable initiatives for a great cause. The proceeds will benefit the We The Best Foundation and their various endeavors in education, the arts, and so much more. This inaugural tournament will be an experience like no one other.

About the event, Khaled commented, “Just to be out on the golf course with close friends and family of mine is a blessing. Giving back makes it even better. I can’t wait to see you all at the first-ever WE THE BEST FOUNDATION GOLF CLASSIC. We’re starting something very special here while introducing the sport of golf to a wider community.”

The festivities commence on Wednesday July 19 when Khaled welcomes sponsors and guests.  Bright and early on the following morning July 20, registration and breakfast commence at 8am with celebrity intros at 9am. The tournament kicks off at 9:30am sharp followed by awards at 2:30pm.

 

For over two decades, the very mention of DJ Khaled has implied an elevated level of musical greatness, entrepreneurial excellence, and cultural impact. You’ve heard him across a GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum catalog, seen him in blockbusters such as Bad Boys For Life, caught him on the cover of Rolling Stone, watched him on numerous television programs, and felt his presence from the streets all the way up to the Barack Obama White House. He has achieved dozens of multiplatinum and gold certifications, including the 9x multi-platinum Billboard Hot 100 #1 “I’m The One” [feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, & Lil Wayne], 6x multi-platinum “Wild Thoughts” [feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller], double platinum “No Brainer” [feat. Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, & Quavo]. His 2019 album, Father of Asahd [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records], to the top of the charts. Not only did it garner a platinum certification, but it also became his third consecutive Top 2 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and emerged as the “#1 Most-Streamed Record” upon release. To date, he has moved over 20 million singles and 6 million albums in addition to gathering 4 billion-plus streams. The latter propelled his 2021 album, Khaled Khaled which boasts the 3x multi-platinum anthem “Every Chance That I Get” [feat. Lil Baby & Lil Durk].

Not to mention, he launched We The Best Music Group—a record label, management, publishing, and production company and in-demand studio. As a committed philanthropist, he founded his 501(c)3 organization The We The Best Foundation. It uplifts individuals throughout underserved communities across the United States and supports various non-profits. He has supported the fight against COVID-19., U2 frontman Bono recruited him as the first social media ambassador for Project Red, and he serves as the national spokesperson for Get Schooled. Now, the power of this legacy defines his thirteenth full-length album—which bears the name—God Did, making it his fourth number #1 album to debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart. With a newly minted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, DJ Khaled continues to soar and inspire. GOD DID!

We The Best Foundation is a 501c3 organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the next generation – from childhood to adulthood. We support non-profit organizations and individuals in underserved communities in efforts that aid them towards becoming the best version of themselves.

The Africa Center, Global Citizen, CAP-A to host Kenyan President William Ruto, WTO Director General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala for Discussion on Climate Positive Growth, Investment, and Trade Frameworks for an African Led World

Published

The Africa Center
The Africa Center in partnership with Global Citizen, Climate Action Platform Africa (CAP-A), and the Government of Kenya will host a discussion between Kenyan President William Ruto and World Trade Organization Director General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala on Climate Positive Growth, Investment, and Trade Frameworks for an African Led World.
The conversation will take place on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 at 9am to 11am EST at The Africa Center at Aliko Dangote Hall, located at 1280 5th Ave in New York City.
The conversation will be live-streamed at theafricacenter.org, and on The Africa Center’s Facebook and YouTube pages. The program will be available on Global Citizen’s YouTube page following the event.
Uzodinma Iweala, CEO of The Africa Center said: “We are thrilled and honored to have President Ruto and WTO D.G. Okonjo-Iweala join us for this critical conversation at The Africa Center. Recognizing and investing in Africa’s leadership on climate change is not just a matter of environmental responsibility, it’s a testament to the continent’s resilience, innovation, and its unwavering commitment to a sustainable future. Africa isn’t just adapting to the impacts of climate change, it’s ready and willing to help shape the narrative of our planet’s future. I firmly believe that by acknowledging and harnessing this leadership, we not only protect our planet but also elevate the global stage for African voices, wisdom, and solutions in this fight.”
Caralene Robinson, Chief Growth Officer at Global Citizen said: “Africa is where climate change, poverty and inequity are having the greatest impact. By 2050, a quarter of the world’s entire population will be African and it will be the world’s youngest continent. The moment is now to unlock opportunity, catalyze inclusive growth to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come. Since 2018 Global Citizen has run several campaigns across the continent and we look forward to further expanding our efforts over the coming year. We are proud to be co-hosting this important discussion with H.E. President Ruto of Kenya and WTO D.G. Okonjo-Iweala, highlighting how the new climate positive global trade frameworks can enable Africa to become a leader in green innovation and technology.”
James Mwangi, Founder of CAP-A and Founder and CEO of Africa Climate Ventures said: “Climate action in Africa is not just possible and potentially highly competitive, it is indispensable: Africa needs to be net negative to achieve net zero global ambitions by 2050. Conversely, Africa needs climate action as a critical driver for economic transformation and job creation at scale. A transition to a green economy will not happen of its own accord. It requires concerted effort and focused leadership. We are honored to bring together perspectives from H.E. President Ruto and WTO D.G. Okonjo-Iweala on the investment case for Climate Positive Growth.”
