It may be recalled that early this year, he went back to the university to do his IT project defense in a bid to inspire youths to always see education as a priority.

Victony had announced via Twitter that he had a show and IT defense just 24 hours apart and he would attend to both of them.

He kept to his words and stormed the FUTO a day after his concert, thereby causing a buzz on campus. The singer was captured in a video arriving at the school premises rocking a brown suit and black shoes. He was with a bodyguard who escorted him into the hall while other students tried to get close.

A brilliant South African student identified Aphiwe Hlatshwayo, has turned down an offer to study in the United States on scholarship.

The girl bagged six distinctions in her matric exams at Reddford House The Hills in Pretoria, and was offered an opportunity to further her studies in USA but she chose a South African higher Institution.

Aphiwe, who is also the head girl at her school, instead, opted to study medicine at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

According to the best graduating student, when she saw that her first and second-term marks had dropped after dedicating much of her time to activities outside of academics, she knew she had to turn things around.

The brilliant girl said she spent a great portion of her time organising school events, representing the school at competitions and serving its pupils.

“When someone comes to me for help, I will avail myself in that moment, pushing everything of mine aside to help the next person until I no longer have time left for me,” she said.

Her multiple engagements accompanied with procrastination and not studying enough, meant that her grades dropped.

She then had to do some self-reflection and realign herself with her goals. This has led to Hlatshwayo bagging six distinctions and ranking in the top 5% of Independent Examinations Board candidates nationally for several subjects.

Following her stellar performance, Hlatshwayo was offered admission at Seattle University in the US to study Anatomy for four years, and another four years in medicine as part of its postgraduate programme.
