DJ Shimza has done it again. The star is known for being one of Mzansi’s most charitable media personalities.
Shimza has been in the entertainment industry for more than a decade and is admired not only for his deejaying skills but also his charitable side.
The media personality has given back to the less fortunate on several occasions over the years and has done it again. Every year, Shimza hosts an annual Christmas party for kids in Tembisa, and organises everything the children would need.
A few days ago, Shimza gave back again, when he donated school shoes . He shared a snap with his fans on Instagram.
Shimza's Instagram post had more than 8000 likes and 247 comments. Here are a few messages from his fans:
torino187: " Giving comes with blessings"
floyd_lavine: "Bless up my brother ❤️"
phumiekamajola: "Let's talk about our home boys 1632 boys... Shimza well done Baba God bless you."
earful_soul_sa: "Godbless you man."
vmwenda: "The kind of world I want to see, Psalm 37:3 says, “Trust, in the Lord and do good, .” God didn’t create us to worry about helping ourselves all the time. He wants us to sow good seed by reaching out to help others. And doing good brings great satisfaction because it feels great to make a difference. It also opens the door for God to bless you in a greater way."
niwe1803: "Bless your heart ❤️"
splash_africa_: "Back to school . Can we partner on a project to repaint some of the classes?"
But Shimza isn’t the only Mzansi celeb who gives back. According to media reports, Kabelo and Danny K’s Shout Foundation has raised millions of Rands to make South African communities safer.
The musicians, who established the Shout Foundation together, have also taken a different route in their charitable work, raising more than R7 million in donations for Shout S.E.E.D Libraries.
A year ago, Skeem Saam actor, Cornet Mamabolo, impressed South Africans when he achieved his dream of building a library in his village in Limpopo.
A month ago, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Shimza got a bitter taste of the crime in South Africa when his R2 million G-Wagon was stolen out of his garage. He hasn't found his car yet, despite the police investigating, and has now bought himself a new whip.
It was a few months ago that DJ Shimza's Mercedes G-Wagon (worth about R2 million) was stolen right out of his garage.
The upset muso took to social media to ask his fans to help him find it if they can, but so far, no luck.
Shimza decided to buy himself a replacement - another G-Wagon, also worth about R2 million, according to a report by OkMzansi.
