Although hard at work preparing for the release of album, 'Tru Colour' come November 26, Wayne Marshall said he's concerned as a Jamaican, "it's a horrible feeling that so many people are on the corners begging. I always give them a little of what I have when I can. I even know some of them on a first-name basis because I interact with them" he told the Gleaner.
In regards to 'family planning' Wayne Marshall appeal to adults to carefully plan how they will finance a family saying, "fathers and mother have a role to play. These homeless kids have or had parents at some point. Parents must now gauge themselves on how much children you can manage - one man all have four kids and don't know how he will support them. There is also an issue of teenage pregnancy which might be a cause as well" he said.
According to the Gleaner, the Social Investment Fund donated the sum of $65 million in 2011 towards erecting a shelter for the homeless in Kingston which they (the Gleaner) is unable to obtain an update by the relevant authorities . Wayne Marshall, who is currently promoting a single entitled, "Stupid Money" said "there are a lot of areas that the Government needs to pay attention to, but the homeless need to be put in a safe place."
