Young Dolph’s Untimely Death Sparks Huge Boost In Sales For Longtime Girlfriend’s ‘Black Men Deserve to Grow Old’ Campaign
It seems like Young Dolph’s supporters are rallying around his longtime girlfriend, Mia Jaye, following his death.
According to reports, the late rapper’s passing has sparked huge growth in business sales for his girlfriend/mother-of-his-children Mia Jaye. The businesswoman started the ‘Black Men Deserve to Grow Old’ campaign, which operates under her Momeo clothing brand, last year after her own brother was unfortunately killed.
A Momeo brand manager recently shared that prior to Young Dolph’s passing, the apparel brand was seeing around 20 orders a day. However, since Young Dolph was fatally shot, the business is now selling between 250 to 600 items daily. The brand manager also revealed that a huge part of the sales increase for the social cause initiative has to do with a new campaign clothing item, a tribute hoodie dedicated to Young Dolph.
With the large boost in sales, Momeo plans to increase the charitable work under the ‘BMDTGO’ campaign and help even more families who fall victim to gun violence.
Initially, Momeo’s goal was to sell around 3,000 products by the end of the year, with a third of the proceeds going directly to grieving families. However, thanks to the large crowd of people who have recently purchased items from Mia Jaye’s clothing brand, that number will reportedly be reached by next week.
As previously reported, Famed rapper Young Dolph was recently killed in his hometown of Memphis Tennessee. According to reports, In the afternoon of Nov. 17 Young Dolph was inside Makeda’s Butter Cookies shop when a vehicle began firing bullets through the front window, which fatally struck the rapper. Young Dolph was 36 at the time of his passing. He is survived by his longtime partner Mia Jaye and their two children.
On Nov. 18 Mia Jaye shared a heartfelt message to her Instagram story thanking people who have shown her love and support during this difficult time. She wrote,
“Thank you to everyone for all of your prayers, love, support, calls, messages… I may not see them all but when my eyes are not full of tears. I catch… a few.”
