Stand back for the man who can,Sunday Independent (First Edition)
MANTOMBI MAKHUBELE Sbu is energised and full of fizz for new year GUERRILLA entrepreneur and celebrity DJ Sbu suspended his aggressive campaign to promote his energy drink MoFaya last week, to lobby for bursaries for matriculants who have achieved outstanding results. Through his Sbusiso Leope Educational Foundation, he connects with bright students from underprivileged communities with big business, who then pay for their tuition fees. On Wednesday, the day matric results were published, social media was ablaze after DJ Sbu posted a picture of his 2014 beneficiary Mpho Mokoena, who had scored seven distinctions a year ago, with people accusing him of lying and insinuating that Mokoena was among the current crop of top achievers. The Sunday Independent caught up with the DJ to talk about the twitterati storm around the Mokoena post, his philanthropic work, and entrepreneurship. What is your relationship with Mpho Mokoena and what happened on Wednesday? Mpho is one of the many matriculants that I help through my foundation.
