“I believe if he is supported, he will go far in life. And I’m happy to be part of that journey in anyway I can”, ST said.

As a token of appreciation, ST presented the visibly excited Hashim Bobo with a school bag, books, pens and an undisclosed amount of money. Additionally, he offered him a 6-year sponsorship to cover his primary education.

Shortly after Bobo’s wonderful performance became an instant internet sensation, ST launched an online search for him leading to the Thursday meeting.
