Education is no doubt an important factor in the lives of many people. However, not everyone has been lucky enough to get the right and much-needed knowledge through education.
Many times, some people are educationally deficient due to lack of funds and opportunity or lack of adequate and proper education.
Well, Nigerian singer, Patoranking, has decided to use his influence to help promising students across Africa get an education.
The music star recently awarded 10 students fully paid scholarships. In a post shared on Instagram, Patoranking revealed that some exceptional young people across Africa were selected after reviewing hundreds of applications.
