fresh kid admitted at school

Patrick Ssenyonjo, popularly known as Fresh Kid  has officialy enrolled at Kampala Parents School for studies.

Fresh Kid has also received a 7-year scholarship by one Ugandan businessman Rajiv Ruparelia who said was moved by the boy’s ambition.

The scholarship provided through Ruparelia Foundation facilitates everything he requires including dropping and picking him from school.

This comes after the rapper was allegedly embattled in a heated war with Uganda’s minister for youth and children affairs, Florence Kiyingi who barred him from performing.

New vision media says that according to the minister, the rapper had ditched school and was busy doing music, a move she termed child labor. Kiyingi ordered that Fresh Kid should go back to school or risk imprisonment should he fail to honor the order.

The minister, however, held a meeting with the young rapper and his management and agreed to work together to see that he goes to school and does music at the same time.

The principal of the school, Daphine Kato promised to help Fresh Kid balance his musical career and academics.

James Wasula, the chairman of the Uganda Performing Rights Society advised Fresh Kids managers not to allow the youngster to perform at night or for a period extending two hours.
