Earlier this year, Shaggy and his group of friends held a charity concert to buy much-needed equipment for the Bustamante Hospital for Children. They are now preparing for the second charity event. The 2010 charity concert, “Shaggy and Friends I Dare You 2010,” will be held on January 2 at Jamaica House.
