Zaytoven Receives Proclamation from the City of Atlanta
by Tamiko Hope
On January 12, 2020, Grammy-winning and multi-platinum producer Zaytoven was presented with a Proclamation from the City of Atlanta and the Mayor’s office for his musical and philanthropic contributions. The music icon, who has worked with Kanye West, Drake, Gucci Mane, the Migos and Nicki Minaj, launched the Zay Area Foundation in 2018 (www.zayarea.org) in an effort to support disadvantaged youth in the community who have an interest in the creative arts, particularly music. Since its inception, the foundation has held a Family Fun Day event in Lithonia over the Labor Day holiday, in addition to partnering with middle schools in the Atlanta area where they donate music equipment.
