Somizi has made three students’ dreams come true. The star has invested in their education by sending them to varsity.
Late last year, the IdolsSA judge promised to donate R20 from each book he sold to pay for their first-year studies.
He announced the news via Instagram, where he posted a video.
Somizi said he and his management team helped three matriculants from a disadvantaged background pay their first-year fees saying.
"Last year I made a promise that I'll take R20 from the sales of each book, 'Dominoes' and take a student or two or three or four to varsity to pay for their first year, for matriculants that did well, that came from disadvantaged backgrounds."
According to a report by ZALebs, in the video, Somizi mentioned he and his team chose three pupils, from three different schools, in three different provinces outside of Gauteng.
"So, I can proudly say that a promise I made, is a promise I kept, and myself and my management, Brand Arch, we managed to select three recipients from outside Gauteng, I think Limpopo and KZN, I can't remember the other province, that's the best we could do."
Briefly.co.za gathered that the star then thanked his fans for buying his book, then stressed the future could be brighter by changing one person at a time.
"But, more than anything, thanks to you, because everyone that bought the book, the R20 went straight into that and now we're paying full fees for the first year for three students. Thank you South Africa, we can change this place and make the future brighter one person at a time."
