Celebrities who payed study fees for people they did not know

Black coffee

Around April this year DJ Black Coffee teamed up with The Fashion. Art. Music. (F.A.M) Academy and Feenix. The trio aimed to raise at least R3-million to help fund students in the creative industry. They hoped to raise the money in two weeks and it would help students in the creative arts field who are undergraduates or had historic debt. The campaign was successful and it was not the first time Coffee has helped in the community. He has helped a lot of charities and funded other students in the previous years. I believe this is the reason why he gets more and more successful because he has a good heart and shares what he has.

Cassper Nyovest

When the rapper came across a Twitter campaign by a tweep called Kholofelo, who was fundraising for her fees by selling homemade ginger juice. Cassper promised to help her and pledged with R100 000. The tweep had been asking for retweets from people to help spread awareness and finally God helped her through Cassper.


People always think rapper AKA is selfish and only thinks about himself but he is not. He offered to pay fees for a fan who was constantly begging for his attention by tagging him to look at his design’s and he finally decided to address the matter of being constantly tagged by the fan who goes by the name of Trevor. The Supa Mega responded to Trevor by asking him what he desires since he was able to gain the rapper’s attention. Trevor explained that he is an aspiring architect looking for someone to fund his education. Out of the goodness of his heart, AKA responded to the fans plea by saying he should expect a direct message from him so that they can figure out a way to help him study further. AKA has also helped raise funds in the fees must fall campaign.
