The Ruparelia Foundation has offered a scholarship for Tik Tok sensation Champion Ogudo for his entire primary education at their elite Kampala Parents’ School.
Champion Ogudo is a Tik Toker, rapper and self styled bodyguard to rapper Alien Skin. The trending rapper Alien Skin has been criticised for keeping the minor Champion Ogudo out of school and instead having the boy accompanying him to night performances in bars and other entertainment spaces.
In fact State Minister for Gender and Culture Hon. Peace Mutuzo had threatened to intervene to ensure that Ogudo goes back to school.
In one of the trending videos, Ogudo was asked by a news reporter why he wasn’t in school and he asked the reporter whether she would meet his school fees.
At least the question of school fees has been solved as the Ruparelia Foundation has offered the scholarship.
Ogudo’s situation came to the attention of the Ruparelias after child rapper Felista Di Superstar, a beneficiary of the Ruparelia Foundation scholarships alongside another child rapper Fresh Kid appealed to the foundation to help and fund Champion Ogudo’s education.
“The bursary I was given helped me complete my primary level and I immediately acquired another bursary at Kisaasi College School from S1 to S6. Have you seen the power of talent! So in that direction, I kindly call upon my former sponsors that is Mr Rajiv and the Ruparelia Foundation to also lend a helping hand to this other talented young soul Champion Ogudo Ug such that he can access such a wonderful and quality education at Kampala Parents’ school. I know you have a kind heart that you can look into my humble request sir,” Felista posted on her socials.
While appearing on Baba TV, Prof. Lawrence Muganga, the Vice Chancellor of Victoria University one of the Ruparelia Group’s education ventures revealed that the Ruparelia Group has granted Champion Ogudo a scholarship.
My directors have come across this post and I would like to say that Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia, through the Ruparelia Foundation has granted a scholarship to Champion Ogudo at Kampala Parents’ School for his entire Primary education. Felista should reach out to him,” Muganga said.
