Local entertainer and reality TV star, Zodwa Wabantu, has in the past made comments about 'educated people', but still wants her son to value his schooling. She wants her boy to have education as a back-up plan in his life.
But she's also admired for being a good mother despite the negative attention she so often gets.
The reality star recently shared with her fans that she seriously wants her son to appreciate the value of education.
Zodwa has in the past said the kind of money she has is the envy of many "educated" people, as reported on by TimesLIVE, but that doesn't mean she doesn't get how important it is.
She posted a video of herself actually kneeling in front of her boy and asking him not to underestimate the value of education.
She highlighted the fact that life is hard and that staying in school is important.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Zodwa tells her child that he must have education as backup.
"Other people call it luck, others say its God... I know that I could have been one of the broke, unemployed people in this country but luckily I'm not.
"I always emphasised to my son that he must not worry about what people say about me and the sh*t I do, he must just focus on school. I want him to be successful and even if he ends up not needing to use school, he must have education as back-up."
