Grey Jabesi, CEO and founder of Crypto University, adds that: “Crypto has the whole world talking, I am very active on Crypto and an advocate because of the positive impact it has made in my life.
This collaboration with DJ Sbu is for the people, we want the positive about Crypto to reach those who care and want to make financial moves in their lives.”

DJ Sbu’s introduction to the Cryptocurrency world started June 2021 during the Covid 19 Lockdowns. During a recording of his Hustlers Corner Podcast, he hosted Crypto Expert Grey Jabesi.
After the Hustlers Corner Podcast interview with Grey, Sbu was so impressed with Grey’s knowledge of the Crypto world that they decided to collaborate and start Crypto University South Africa.
Since June 2021, Sbu and Grey have hosted a series of Cryptocurrency events for beginners in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Sbu has since released his own set of NFTs in collaboration with well renowned international visual artist KING DEBS from Cape Town. Sbu and KING DEBS first release of their collection of 10 NFTs sold out in 3 days, and they are working on more NFT projects together.
Sbu and his partners plan to take their Cryptocurrency education to South African townships nationwide.
Grey Jabesi is an African Tech entrepreneur and investor. He is the founder of Crypto University (CU), Buy Bitcoin Malawi and Khodo App, Imojimotion, Alfajiri Ventures and United Africa Blockchain Association.
He has a technical background in 3D animation, Web development, Design and Film making. Grey Jabesi is also the top Cryptocurrency and Blockchain influencer in the African continent, and he hosts Survival Skills Podcast. Grey’s mission is to build the version of Africa he wants to see.
Grey is also passionate about women getting involved in the Cryptocurrency domain, as he believes it is time for better inclusion in the Crypto sectors and more opportunities for women to upskill in this area.
Dezray began her interest in crypto in 2011 and purchased ether and Bitcoin when most of the market was still in the dark about crypto.
She attempted to invite close friends and family into the crypto world but understandably no one was biting any call to invest in something that sounded so ‘pie in the sky’.
At end of 2014 she purchased Bitcoin at a window of R2657 and spent savings of R15000 and obtained 5,3 Bitcoins.
Empowered with the knowledge “only invest using money you can afford to lose” she left her coins intact even at times where she says she needed the cash.
In late 2017 Bitcoin hit a high of up to R228 874 and her risk taking of R15000 shot to an exponential plus R1.2million. She sold some currency to purchase property out of fear it would not get better than that.
Bitcoin fell drastically after the 2017 high, and this gave would be traders another opportunity to invest although by this time it was in a much high region.
