Businessman and socialite King Dube, popularly known as Emza, tipped a waitress a whopping R30,000 to further her studies.

King Dube went viral on social media after users posted a picture of him with the young woman with the caption: "Me vs The man who tipped me with R30,000 to go further my studies when I was working as a waitress in Durban. He said you are too young for the nightclub, go back to school. I left and came back with a degree three years later."

TshisaLIVE contacted King Dube, who confirmed giving a waitress a generous tip to further her studies.

"Yes, I saw her in the nightclub (Rich DBN) serving us and other patrons. I was curious and asked her what she is doing in the club as she was young. And she told me that she's working to raise funds for her studies. What she said really went to my heart," he said.

"On that day, I had an extra R30,000 and she gave me her banking details and I sent her funds electronically; I couldn't even get a chance to ask for her numbers, but the funds reflected in her account while she was serving other patrons."

He continued: "Only now I see that she eventually went ahead with her studies, I never knew she'd end up  going through with it, so all credit to her.

"Somebody else could've taken those funds and bought alcohol or partied away with her friends, but I'm glad she ended up obtaining a degree. I actually forgot about it because I've never asked for her numbers but only got the post on social media, and [I said] congratulations to her on her social media."

In 2018, King Dube hosted US rapper TI in the country to perform.
