Cars of the rich and famous


Lifestyles of the rich and famous, oh, how we envy you. We love to see what celebrities are wearing, who they’re dating and where they go on holiday. We also want to know what cars they’re driving in the hope we can one day be like them and drive something similar. We’ve rounded up the cars driven by the local rich and famous.


Rapper Cassper Nyovest, well known for last year’s hit Doc Shebeleza, drives a BMW 4 Series. These normally sell for upwards of R500 000.


BMWs are popular among this crowd of local stars. Kwaito singer Chomee was lucky enough to receive a black BMW for a recent birthday.


Dance choreographer and brand new Idols SA judge Somizi Mhlongo can be spotted cruising around town in a hot red BMW convertible.


TV presenter, actress and model Boitumelo “Boity” Thulo was the very lucky recipient of a Jeep Cherokee – which sells for between  R500 000 and R600 000 – recently. She has also been spotted on a reality TV show tooling around in her Citroen DS3. These usually retail for between R200 000 and R300 000.


Award winning DJ and record producer, DJ Black Coffee was seen with a Bentley, which sells for more than R3 million. He also has a Mercedes Benz G wagon in his collection of cars.


Another local celeb who drives a Mercedes is TV and radio personality Minnie Dlamini. She drives a CLS 500 adorned with the personalised number plate, Minnie 23.


Yet another famous face spotted in a Mercedes is soul singer Thandiswa Mazwai who showed off her Mercedes Benz C Class not too long ago.


Bonang Matheba showed off her black Range Rover when she uploaded an image to her Instagram account. Queen B said she was pictured with her ride for a photo shoot.


DJ, music producer and radio presenter Themba Mbongeni Nkosi, better known as Euphonik, showed off a new toy on Instagram – a Rolls Royce Phantom.
You and I won’t be able to buy these cars and drive them off the showroom floor. But perhaps we could get lucky and find one hidden among other used cars for sale.
