He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Commerce (Management Accounting) from the University of Stellenbosch.
"Finally received my graduation certificate! A big deal to me as I'm the first person in my family to graduate from university!"
He went on to explain that his dad was the first in his family to matriculate but couldn't afford to study and his mom was not allowed to study what she wanted to.
His father passed away in 2016 and his dying wish to his wife was that she makes sure that he and his brother complete their degrees at university.
"My father was the only one in his family who matriculated, but he couldn't afford to study any further. My mother wasn't allowed to study what she wanted. Just before my father's passing in 2016 he asked my mom to make sure my brother and I both get our degrees."
Henlo revealed that it was thanks to his dad, who worked 5am to 6pm every week and his mom, who took over her husband's business with very little experience.
