Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe popularly known by his stage name DJ Maphorisa is considering going back to school. The record producer and DJ who sometimes feature vocals in songs, is part of a relatively long list of high school dropouts who turned out to be just doing fine in life.
DJ Maphorisa is one of the most successful artists to come out of South Africa having worked with and received production credits from various local and international artists such as Black Coffee, Kwesta, Wizkid and Drake just to name a few.
DJ Maphorisa still wants to go back to school and finish what he started despite his success.
He told Metro FM that he dropped out in grade 11 when he got his first deal.
“I wasn’t going to school when I got the deal. It made me realise that maybe this was possible. I didn’t finish school, to be honest. I ended up in grade 11 and I went to college to do A (technical) courses: A1, A2, and A3. That is where I followed my dream. I guess I have to go back” he said.
Themba Sonnyboy said that he sometimes struggles to read contracts with clear understanding and hence he wants to finish his education.
“I am struggling to read contracts and stuff,” he said.
