PICS: 5 local stars and their posh pads


Johannesburg – From luxury Johannesburg homes to million-dollar New York properties, these South African celebrities have incredible houses, and they're not afraid to flaunt them.  

But hey, we're not complaining, we love seeing our favourite star's posh pads. So if you're looking for some design inspo for your own home, or like us, you just feel like living vicariously through these celebrity homes, then check out the pics here.  

1. Bonang Matheba 

Queen B took magazine show Top Billing into her new home in 2018, showing off her stunning property, which included what she calls her "glam room."

Speaking to Jonathan Boynton-Lee on the episode, B described her glam room as the place where she gets ready every morning and also prepares for major events with the help of her hair and makeup team.  

The room is filled with designer clothes, handbags and shoes. And of course, no glam room would be complete without a Hollywood style vanity mirror with lights.   

2. Cassper Nyovest 

We think it's pretty safe to say that one of Cassper's favourite chill spots is his own home. The rapper loves showing off his massive house on Instagram, and honestly, we love seeing the pics.  

It's got a beautiful back yard, an infinity pool, and enough garage space to fit his fancy cars. What more could you want?

3. Maps Maponyane 

The great thing about Maps Maponyane's luxurious pad is that we got to bear witness to the transformation.  

The TV personality had been working on his apartment for quite some time, and in December 2018 finally showed us the end result.  

Posting before and after pictures of his place on Instagram, Maps wrote: "I've wanted this so bad. Home. Finally. Before. After." 

4. DJ Zinhle 

Another DIY home improvement – DJ Zinhle spent some time transforming her house, and we are so in love with it.  

The muso is also responsible for decorating her own place, and even upcycled some old furniture, turning it into beautiful pieces. 


5. Trevor Noah 

There's no way we could leave Trevor off of this list. The Daily Show host bagged himself a New York penthouse worth R130 million in 2017.  

YOU magazine reported that the penthouse is located "in the Stellar Tower in Hell's Kitchen on the west side of midtown Manhattan close to Times Square." 

The apartment allegedly boasts a fantastic view, a wrap-around terrace and plenty of space to entertain guests.
