Plies Promises to Pay Fan’s College Tuition
‘Tis the season to be jolly! Plies was certainly feeling merry when he called a fan on stage in the middle of his Jingle Bash performance in Atlanta last week and gave her the gift that keeps on giving. The Fort Myers, Fla. based rapper called 18-year-old high school senior Khambrea Johnkins to the stage to inform her that he was willing to pay her college tuition to whichever school she chose to attend.
“I don’t give a damn if its Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Florida State, Harvard, or Yale, if you want to go to college, I am going to send you to college,” Plies announced to the shocked teen.
According to Hip Hop Enquirer, Johnkins — who currently holds a 4.0 GPA and hopes to become a nurse — has chosen to matriculate at the University of Miami. Tuition at UM is approximately $52,000 a year. “I thought I wouldn’t be able to go to the school because the tuition was so expensive but Plies has made my dream come true,” Johnkins said in a recent interview.
According to the teen, the gift came with one stipulation. Plies asked Johnkins to promise that she would “go hard” and strive in school. Fair enough. Shout out to Plies for being our favorite rapping Santa Claus.
