DJ Fresh has decided to motivate the class of 2020 by partnering with the University of Johannesburg to give away a bursary to one lucky student. The muso took to social media to make the announcement.
"Matriculants: Class of 2020 THIS IS FOR YOU! Three years of your varsity fees paid for at @go2uj … Imagine THAT! Read the T’s&C’s to ensure you qualify, answer a simple question and stand a chance to win a bursary!"
The bursary is accessible by following an easy set of instructions. It is only available to pupils who are currently in matric this year. The total cost of tuition covered will be R85 000.
Social media users excitedly flocked to his mentions to thank him for the opportunity and to tell him that they had entered the competition. Twitter user melodysbk said:
"Thank you... My son just entered. Fingers crossed."
"Thank you so much for this, stay blessed."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that DJ Fresh had to quit law school in order to follow his dream of being a radio presenter. The veteran radio host took to social media to reflect on his radio career, which began in July 1992.
This is after his fans congratulated him for bagging the Best Afternoon Drive Presenter award at The Radio Awards 2020’s virtual ceremony.
In a new thread, Fresh told his listeners and fans his story. He started the thread by appreciating his fans for their support.
"Thanks for all of your kind messages and well wishes. You might or might now know, but I never make a song and dance of awards. The first and last time I did so was in 1994. Let me explain..."
Fresh, who also doubles up as a club DJ, explained that he had been on radio from July 1992 when he "increasingly realised" that law school was not for him.
"Come winter 1994, I flunked out of law school. A month later, I applied to study Media at #BostonMediaHouse and #RAU! 3 months later I was voted Bots (Botshwana) Lemon Twist Radio DJ of the year!"
