He stayed true to his words, when school resumed, the former street kid was pictured in a school uniform ready for school courtesy of Terry G.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, the Free madness said;
“This is not the first child that I have offered a scholarship. I have done it for several kids but I would not want to give figures. I do it because it is my passion; something I love to do.
“I believe that it is not only our children or kids from privileged backgrounds that have something to offer to the society. The kids on the street too, if given the chance, can make the country a better place. They face a lot of challenges in their lives and it only makes them stronger; they tend to be the leaders of tomorrow because they always strive hard to break the yoke of poverty. I like to help these street kids because I was like them,” he said.
“I enrolled most of the children that I took off the street in my mother’s school. Not many people know that my mother is an educationist. She worked at the secondary school I finished from and because of the love she had for kids, she opened a crèche. She now has a school.”
