The concert brought together the senior traditional owners of Wadeye, who have been working tirelessly to resolve conflicts within the community. Stephen Pultchen, one of the traditional owners, expressed his gratitude for the event, stating that it allowed the community members to come together and enjoy a sense of togetherness.
J-MILLA, who is fast becoming known for his powerful lyrics and positive message, has been using music as a tool to heal and unite people. His breakout song, “Unlock the System,” addressed the need for justice for First Nations people. Having overcome a challenging upbringing, J-MILLA has become a dedicated advocate for his community. He recently performed at a free concert for the youth in Alice Springs and mentored the young talent from Maningrida, resulting in the release of the captivating song “The Problem.”
Returning to Wadeye by popular demand, J-MILLA is excited to bring his showmanship and inspirational rhymes back to the community. The concert, scheduled for Thursday, June 1, will coincide with Reconciliation Week 2023, a week dedicated to fostering reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community.
During the concert, J-MILLA plans to encourage his countrymen and women to prioritize self-care by drinking more water. As a symbol of this commitment, Coca-Cola has pledged to provide free bottles of Pump water for the community throughout the weekend.
J-MILLA’s impact extends beyond his music. His presence has been instrumental in revitalizing the spirit of Wadeye and promoting unity among its residents. With his return concert fast approaching June 1st, there is an air of anticipation and excitement in the community, as they look forward to continuing the positive vibes and celebrating a new beginning.
