Popular radio and TV personality Somizi Mhlongo has announced on Instagram that he wants to help up to four matriculants pay their first-year varsity fees.

“With my book almost reaching 10 000 units, I spoke to my management, and I want to donate R20 from each book,” he said in the video.

He said he was planning on raising a minimum of R200 000, which would go towards the fees of two to four matriculants from disadvantaged backgrounds.

He has asked candidates to send their final-year marks to info@matuka.co.za, his management team.

“Changing South Africa one person at a time. Thanks to all that are supporting my dreams because through you I’m able to support other people’s dreams #DOMINOES about to go gold,” he wrote on his Instagram post.

Other celebrities who have previously helped financially disadvantaged students include Bonang Matheba, DJ Fresh, Mo Flava and AKA.
