It is always commendable to watch musicians selflessly give of their time, talent and sometimes money, especially when it comes to those who are in need of financial assistance to further their studies.

As the year commences, there are thousands of students who are evidently in need of funds to help finance their studies in tertiary institutions.

DJ Mo Flava

One DJ who has been helping out students pay for their studies for the 9th consecutive year running is DJ Mo Flava.

Mo Flava, is set to give Boston Media House away bursaries to students who matriculated in 2017 or 2018.

In a recently released statement, Mo has sent out a call to action for those who are interested in furthering their studies but do not have the financial means to do so.  This opportunity will be offered to those who are interested in working in the media industry and to take up the opportunity to study Media Studies through Boston Media.
The entry mechanic to stand a chance to win a Mo Flava Media Studies bursary at Boston Media House is very simple; 2017 and 2018 matric students need only WhatsApp their matric results to 081 268 7518.
Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to be interviewed by the Metro FM DJ at one of the three Boston Media campuses below:
19 January 2019 – Durban campus
26 January 2019 – Sandton campus
2 February 2019 – Pretoria campus
DJ Junior De Rocka

Despite the co-parenting drama he is currently experiencing with his baby mama, Ntando Duma, Junior De Rocka recently went out of his way to donate a few essentials to schools that were in need.

Junior also invited several personalities to take part in this school campaign he named the #DeRockasSchoolDrive.

Some of the celebrities who supported Junior's initiative are Dladla Mshunqisi, DJ Cndo, Distruction Boyz, El Dambie clothing founder, Sbusiso Xolani Myeni and Jnr B.
Junior  donated computers, cleaning items, stationary and WiFi to two schools in KwaZulu-Natal - Wiggins Secondary and Nkosibomvu Secondary School.
