She holds a Masters degree in African Literature from Wits and is currently pursuing a PHD in Cinema and Media studies at The University Of California Los Angeles. I know, right? Very impressive. Clearly she is a queen on an unstoppable roll and we love to see it.

Taking to his social media, the Skeem Sam actor shared the good news with his fans and you can already imagine how excited everybody was.

Cedric graduated with a post graduate diploma in Management practice and the smile on his face was enough to prove that he too was proud of this great achievement.

Shudufhadzo Musida

Last but not least we have the former Miss SA 2020, Shudufhadzo Musida, who graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand with an honours degree in International Relations.
