Jamaican-born international recording artiste Sean Kingston returned to a warm welcome at Ocho Rios High School where he was enrolled for three years before migrating to the United States.

There was an overwhelming reception from students for the iconic past student with many securing a photo op next to the artiste known for such hits as Beautiful Girls and Fire Burning.

The artiste interacted with students and encouraged them to do their best in upcoming exams. He also made a commitment to donate laptop and desktop computers to be sent to the school as soon as possible.

"Today was just about coming back to Ocho Rios High School where I started and talking to the children. I feel that it was only right that I come back to my country and talk to the kids," an excited Kingston later told the Jamaica Observer North East.

"I have some laptops that I’m going to be giving away to some of the students. I came from here and went to America and followed my dreams and I want to come back and inspire other kids to do the same," the artiste said.

Members of staff were equally excited to have Kingston visiting the institution.

"He is always coming back and we are happy to have him here today," said Christine Wellington, vice principal for the afternoon shift.

She said the school was grateful for the donations which will be made by Kingston to the institution.
