Jamaican-American rapper, songwriter and television personality Safaree Samuels paid a special visit to the Merlene Ottey High School in Pondside Great Valley, Hanover on Tuesday.

Samuels traces his Jamaican roots to the parish of Hanover so visit the school named after the former track and field sprinter legend was a big deal for him.

In a series of videos uploaded to his Instagram story, Safaree can be heard giving the students motivation and urging them to stay in school.

Safaree said despite being a rapper and starring in Love & Hip Hop: New York, education was always number one of his list and he made sure to finish school.

Watch Safaree speaking with the kids below.
