His hit song has blown up all around the world. Since its release earlier this year, Jerusalema has struck a chord with people all over the globe – and the upbeat gospel-inspired House hit is getting everyone from Palestine to Port Elizabeth dancing. 

Master KG and Nomcebo Zikode’s top track has now reached over 150 million views on YouTube and the man behind the music is making so much money it’s burning a hole in his pocket. 

To celebrate the song’s global success, the hit producer recently rewarded himself with a gleaming new red Ferrari. “Ferrari, Ferrari, Ferrari,” Master KG gushed as he revved the sports car in a video posted to social media. With a starting price of R4m, the Ferrari FF is the most expensive one in the country.

But the Jerusalema hitmaker isn’t the only one living it up. From splurging on their dream homes to trotting around the globe in first class, these famous faces know how to splash cash.

As one of Mzansi’s most stylish celebs it’s no surprise Queen B’s closet is dripping with designer bags. Though she loves Louis Vuitton and Dior, one of her most expensive pieces is a Gucci bag worth R46 000.

Somizi Mhlongo

From expensive gifts to dreamy baecations, the popular TV personality is certainly living the dream. These days, however, he spends most of his days filming Dinner at Somizi’s in his kitchen, which is kitted out with top-of-the-range appliances. But it’s his vast walk-in closet that’s the height of luxury.

Cassper Nyovest

Talk about travelling in style! Cassper is getting ready for a whirlwind promotional tour of his new album, AMN (Any Minute Now). The Mama I Made It hitmaker also has two Bentleys and two Mercedes-Benz luxury whips – he splurged close to R4 million on his grey Bentley Continental alone.
