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."
