“I started the Lizo Gqoboka Foundation as I realised there was a lot of local talent, but not many employment or entrepreneurial opportunities. Through the foundation we give opportunities in sports and education,” said Gqoboka.

“It is just beautiful memories every time you drive back to your old township where you grew up and see the development in the township,” said Dj Sbu.
