Bolt Donates R100,000 to Gifted Vocals from Sabela High School, Winners of the Gwijo Challenge

Bolt South Africa proudly announces the winners of its recent Gwijo Challenge, an initiative aimed at fostering community spirit while showcasing the vital role of Bolt in connecting South Africans as they move from A to B.

Over the course of 10 weeks, schools and organisations across the country participated in the competition, tasked with crafting a song incorporating the theme of Bolt and demonstrating how communities utilise the platform for mobility. The challenge saw enthusiastic participation, highlighting the significance of Gwijo’s in bringing people together, much like Bolt’s mission.

The victorious group, Gifted Vocals, hails from Sabela High School and gained recognition for their mesmerising performances on TikTok. Their unique Gwijo, featuring the word “Bolt” in the lyrics, resonated with audiences and earned them the grand prize of R100,000. The winnings will be directed towards purchasing school uniforms for pupils, furthering educational opportunities within their community.
