Wits student group raises awareness and R50 000 for financially needy students

Wits University's Great Hall was sold out as the public rushed at the chance to raise money for financially needy students and have a laugh at the Muslim Students Association #FunnyForFees comedy show.

The Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of the Witwatersrand hosted a sold-out comedy show on 3 August.

The show, called Funny For Fees, featured comedy stars Deep Fried Man, Lihle Msimang, Suhayl Essa and many others, who had everyone attending in stitches as they laughed their way to collecting R50 000.

One of the show’s organisers Thaakirah Savahl said, “The show was sold out. There were over a thousand people who attended the show. Considering all the compliments from the audience, everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.”

She added that every cent collected through the show will go towards helping students clear their debt and graduate from the university.

This was the second instalment of the comedy show and, just like the first edition, the aim was to bring awareness of financial issues faced by students at universities. They did exactly that as they managed to sell over 1 000 tickets to the show.
Savahl shared the association’s happiness with the sponsors Alcazaba Lodges and Jimmy’s Killer Prawns that helped make the night a success.

The association will continue to prioritise the needs and challenges of all students. According to Savahl, “MSA will now shift their focus to showing their support around campus within women’s month by means of some small projects and events.”
