The 3-storey “Michael Blackson Academy” complex is fully furnished, completely free, and open to the public.

The school completes Blackson’s mission of providing free education to the people in his hometown of Nsaba.

“Today is the greatest day of my life because I’ve finally accomplished what I always wanted to do which is giving these kids a chance to be great,” he posted on Twitter.

“Greatness starts with education and foundational education shouldn’t come with financial barriers,” he added.

“Finally, it’s all done and the kids in my village will all go to school for free. Thanks to all my fans that supported me throughout the years, every ticket you bought to my show helped a kid,” Blackson wrote.
