BBC News – South African jazz star returns to school

A high school in the South African township of Soweto has seen a 20% rise in attendance, since a famous jazz musician returned to school.

Sipho “Hotstix” Mabusay plans to sit his secondary school certificate in the coming months, more than 40 years after turning his back on his studies.
