In addition to hosting his second annual SLEF Benefit Concert in March, Sbu has once again taken his energy drink to the people. He was caught on camera, selling the canned drinks in traffic to raise funds to send 20 students to the university.
“All in the name of education. They just talk. But we walk the talk,” Sbu wrote alongside the video.
According to Sbu, the move to send students to university is already underway and he hopes that SLEF will reach it’s aim of sending 20 students to university before the benefit on 4 March.
“Last week we gave them seven bursaries. We’re distributing three more next week, and the week after we distributing ten more. So definitely twenty kids even before the SLEF Benefit Concert are definitely going to university.”
His aim is to raise a million rand for charity this year.
This will help the foundation extend a helping hand to deserving matriculants to further their education. Thus, in the bid to increase the number of bursaries that are already in circulation, the Sbusiso Leope Education Foundation, will be holding a benefit concert at Moriting Park in Tembisa next month.
Over 500 bursaries have already been given out to deserving matriculants and DJ Sbu aims at increasing the number this year.
According to Sbu, the foundation has already raised up to R100 000 through donations which was what they realised in last year’s benefit concert. Thus, they need an additional R900 000 to reach this year’s target.
