Boity is one of the most successful media personalities in Mzansi. While most entertainers were complaining about being financially affected amid the Covid-19 pandemic, sis kept securing the bag. She has dropped her first EP, launched her own perfume and signed to Def Jam Africa this year.
The reality TV star also used 2020 to show her charitable side. The kind-hearted rapper did not just keep the money she made to herself but she also shared some of it with her fans.
Peeps don't just love her because of her fame but they adore her because she knows when to give back to the community and needy. Briefly.co.za takes a look at three moments where the stunner blessed Mzansi with her kindness.
1. New calculator for student
Boity trended on Twitter after scores of social media users relayed stories of how the businesswoman helped them in their time of need. Briefly.co.za learnt that at the beginning of the year, a young man known as Siya reached out to Boity via Twitter to ask her if she could assist him with some funds for a new calculator. And she did. To prove his plea was genuine, Siya then posted a picture of his new calculator on Twitter and more recently revealed he had finally graduated from university. Siya was not the only person Boity had helped. She has proven that she has a heart of gold over and over again.
2. eWallet for man who returned R9 000
Boity showed many that honesty truly does pay. She took to social media to contact Wandile Ntuli, a man who returned R9 000 he was given by accident. Touched by his pure heart, Boity offered to send him an eWallet. Wandile took to Twitter to share that a stranger accidentally paid R9 000 into his bank account and was understandably upset about the mistake. Instead of keeping the money for himself, Ntuli returned it to the rightful owner and inspired Mzansi.
3. Launch of Boity Thulo Foundation
A few months ago, Boity launched her very own foundation. There is no denying that this queen has a heart of gold. This coronavirus has made many people think about what truly means the most to them, and helping others has become a priority like never before. The foundation was set up to help women and children in South Africa who have been hit hard with and impacted by economic strains, especially as a result of Covid-19.
