A FAMOUS DJ RETURNS THE FAVOR!
THE COVID-19 epidemic has wreaked havoc on Mzansi celebrities, to the point when delving into their own pockets for a good deed has become a near-impossible task.
However, one well-known young house DJ has decided to give back to his community by gifting school shoes to needy students.
Mthatha-born Mthobeli Xabendlini had to walk to school barefoot as a child growing up in a poor family.
And, as Mandela Month approaches, the skilled DJ and entrepreneur shows no signs of slowing down.
DJ Mist SA, as he is fondly called, has begun collecting school shoes for disadvantaged students in and around his hometown, with the goal of donating in the run-up to Mandela Day on December 18th.
DJ Mist told the Daily Sun that he was moved when he returned to his old primary school last month and observed the majority of students wearing worn-out shoes.
“The country is currently experiencing chilly weather, and seeing children wearing worn-out shoes broke my heart. While on tour with musician TNS, I immediately offered to give 100 pairs of shoes to help ease this tragic situation. T
his gesture of goodwill was motivated by the fact that I, too, had worn-out shoes when I was in fourth grade. However, my life orientation teacher noticed my predicament and decided to surprise me with a new pair of shoes. What she did for me sowed the seed of giving in me.
From that day forward, I wanted to use this motivation to deliver a smile to other hurting students,” he stated.
To achieve his aim, DJ Mist will put on a one-man concert in which he would perform nonstop for 12 hours for the benefit of poor children.
He stated that admission to the event will need a donation of at least one pair of school shoes.
“I've already gathered 50 pairs of shoes. “At this rate, we should be able to reach out to many more disadvantaged students,” he said.
