Usain Bolt has demanded that all photo shoots with him must be done right in Jamaica.
The sprint legend disclosed that this is a way to give back to his people and demands that his ads be done in Jamaica to bring money to his country.
Speaking in an interview Bolt said “When we started out people always wanted to do the shoots in Miami, Los Angeles and all over the world. They used to say, ‘Oh, thanks for bringing the shoots here,’” he recalled. “We decided that you know what, we will be doing a lot more shoots. So any contract we sign, the shoot has to be in Jamaica. So we can give people jobs and help people. Over the weekends, we’ll have like over one hundred, two hundred people [working] depending on how big the shoot is.”
He went on to say “It must be in the contract that they’ll do the shoots here, unless they don’t have the equipment. But as long as they have the equipment, it has to be done here, so I can help the economy. I’ve helped a lot of people, and they always thank me. They would say, ‘Big up Usain, you really helped us, bringing the jobs here.”
