Here's to more celebrities investing in education! Somizi has managed to take three students to varsity after he made that promise late last year to donate R20 from each book to help some matriculants pay for their full first year fees at Varsity.
Taking to social media Somizi announced the great news saying that him and his management team managed to help three matriculants from a disadvantaged background pay their first-year fees saying:
"...last year I made a promise that I'll take twenty rands 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..."
Somizi mentioned that they picked three students from 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.."
Somizi went on to thank his fans that went out to buy the book and reiterated that the future could be brighter by changing one person at a time.
"...but more than anything, thank's to you because, everyone that bought the book, the twenty rands 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..."
