Mpisane giving away R200 000 cash

Fame & Fortune

Royal AM boss and Durban socialite Andile Mpisane celebrated his birthday in style a few weeks ago after donating R200 000 for students to pay off their tertiary tuition fees.

The wealthy and flamboyant Mpisane – who is also a Gqom music artist and soccer star – celebrated his 20th birthday on 15 March and decided to celebrate by giving back to the community.

The Royal AM chairman took time to express his support towards the #FeesMustFall movement, whose main objective is to stop rising tuition fees and increase government funding towards education at tertiary institutions around the country.

Mpisane pledged to donate R10 000 each to 20 students who have recurring debt since 2020.

"Today marks my 20th birthday and reaching this milestone has me reflecting on my life and how blessed I have been," he wrote on his Instagram page.

"Growing up requires one to look at things differently. As a young chairman my focus has been on seeing team @royalam_fc grow but we cannot neglect the difficult year we’ve had because of COVID as it has resulted with many people being left unemployed and in unfavourable financial situations.

"In light of the current #FeesMustFall situation and in celebration of my 20th birthday this year I would like to give back by gifting 20 university students that have recurring debt from 2020 with R10 000 towards their fees.

"Lastly, I would like to add that this is not a competition about who is doing what for who. We are all trying our best to serve a greater cause, which is what matters most."

Mpisane's dream of playing in the PSL next season looks like could become a reality as Royal AM currently sit in third place in the GladAfrica Championship.
