A Look At MaMkhize’s Luxury Cars

MaMkhize’s luxury cars and flashy lifestyle are the most-talked aspects of her life. The South African businesswoman’s popularity skyrocketed after giving the country a front-row seat in her life through her reality show, Kwa MaMkhize. MaMkhize is one of the wealthiest and most successful businesswomen around with so much to show for their hard work.

Although some people consider the businesswoman a huge inspiration and a role model, others see her as a corrupt businesswoman who benefitted unduly from the government’s tenders and contracts. MaMkhize is also popular across social media platforms, where she shares intimidating photos and first-hand information about how her personal life, family, and achievements.

MaMkhize Drives Some of the Most Expensive Cars In The World

When you are in the public eye, many people judge what you drive, wear, and whatnot. One of the perks of being successful and popular is that you get to drive classic and exotic cars of your choice. As mentioned earlier, one of the most talked-about aspects of MaMkhize’s life is her love for luxury cars with opulent features. It is one desirable part of her life that makes people believe she has the right to spend her money in any way that pleases her.

MaMkhize may be one of the richest women in South Africa, but she is among the few that have turned car collecting into a career. All the vehicles in her garage are symbols of her status, and she prides herself in them all. The reality TV star loves expensive cars, which has seen her invest a significant portion of her family wealth in exotic fancy wheels. She especially has a taste for Rolls Royce and Mercedes Benz, both of which are among the most coveted car brands in the world.

MaMkhize’s car collection is revered among celebrities in the country. Having amassed a jaw-dropping net worth from endeavors, it’s no surprise she has several exceptionally expensive vehicles lying around. Some of her modern exotics include Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black badge, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Maserati GranTurismo, to mention a few. Though the businesswoman loves posing with her cars, there are some of her cars that she prefers not to share with her millions of followers.

She is Known to Have Acquired Her Cars Through Various Income Streams

MaMkhize has more than one business channel through which she makes her money. Interestingly, all of her known business interests are male-dominated, but that did not stop her from becoming relevant and making a name for herself. Her known incomes streams include:

1. Football Business

Until 2019, MaMkhize and her ex-husband used to co-manage the Royal Eagles Football club, which they bought in 2014. The businesswoman later lost the battle of ownership of the club to her husband. Currently, MaMkhizes runs the up-and-coming soccer team Royal AM FC together with her son Andile Mpisane. They reportedly bought the club in August 2021 for R50 million.

While MaMhize is the owner, her son is the chairman of the Durban, KwaZulu Natal-based team. The club competes in the South African Premier Division (PSL).

2. Zikhulise Group

The Zikhulise Group Holding Company was founded in 2003 and is owned by Shauwn and her former husband. The company’s business fields include cleaning, transport, construction, and mining.

A huge part of the businesswoman’s wealth came through their company’s business deals with high-profile clients, including the government. In the early 2000s, Zikhulise was awarded a contract to build low-budget RDP houses on about 4500 sites in Umlazi Infill, KwaMgaga, and Umlazi B10 in eThekwini municipality.

The company is said to bagged another multi-million contract from the KwaZulu-Natal government and other jaw-dropping contracts from notable firms and companies in the countries. MaMkhize is the daughter of South African politician cum ANC veteran Flora Mkhize. It is believed that she was pushed into the A-listers of South Africa and the highest echelons of society through her political connections.

3. The Kwa Ma’mkhize Reality Show

MaMkhize literally knows how to make money moves. She left tongues wagging, especially on social media, after the first episode of her reality show hit the screen. The show follows her everyday life, journey to greatness, spending habit,s challenges, and more and that of her children. In her reality show, the businesswoman is captured living her best life following her divorce from Sbu Mpisane, the father of her only biological child, Andile. She is also making a move to reclaim her maiden name legally at the Home Affairs office.

The socialite’s birth name is Shauwn Mkhize. Kwa Mam’Mkhizeshow is taped in the Durban-based businesswoman’s heavily-secured La Lucia mansion, where she often hosts galas for the who’s who of South Africa. The show was recently nominated for a Hollywood award, and Mkhize couldn’t hide her joy when she shared the news with her fans.

4. Acting Career

Mamkhize recently launched her career, making her debut in the South African popular soap opera Uzalo. Though the exact amount she would be earning for her role in the TV series is not known publicly, it is believed that the amount would be substantial.

The philanthropist is yet to make so much money from her acting career being a newbie, but whatever she earns from the show would definitely increase the figures in her bank account.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge Is Currently Her Most Expensive Car

The Uzalo recently bought her Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge for R16 million, making it her most expensive car at the moment. Rolls Royce is one of the most famous luxury brands of all time, and their products naturally depict royalty and class.

The luxury car has so many modern and unique features. It also comes with a Viewing Suite, a table, and a pair of backward-facing seats that slide out of a compartment in the trunk. Its rear seats are split by a center console that holds a pair of drinks decanters and four glasses, with electronically-deployed picnic tables and television screens for each rear passenger.

A Look At MaMkhize’s Luxury Cars

The car’s starlight roof lining is designed to imitate the night’s sky while its rear-hinged doors house a pair of umbrellas. There are many more to enjoy in this car, so we are not surprised that it costs an arm and a leg. Being highly connected in South Africa and working with prominent people in reputable sectors, it is no surprise that Shauwn MaMkhize has amassed so much wealth from her endeavors and does invest part of it in fancy wheels. Truly, her love for luxury cars is understandable – she is highly placed in society. Therefore, it wouldn’t be out of place for her to drive cars that befit her status.

The businesswoman’s love for luxury cars has resulted in some people criticizing her for spending so much on cars, while others claim the money she uses in paying for cars was unduly gotten from the controversial Umlazi housing contract. Recently, the Democratic Alliance party bluntly told her to sell her latest car to fund her club. This was after Mkhize approached eThekwini municipality for sponsorship. Despite DA’s objection, the municipality stood by its decision to sponsor the Royal AM for the next three years.

How Expensive Are MaMkhize’s Kid’s Cars?

Like their mom, Andile and Sbahle love luxury as well; Andile, in particular, is known for showing off his expensive lifestyle on social media. Though the half-siblings come from a wealthy background, they do not entirely rely on their parents’ wealth. Andile co-wons the Royal AM with his mom. He is also a singer and footballer. Sbahle is a TV personality and fitness guru. So, it is believed that they also take care of their bills and fund their expensive lifestyle, including the cars they drive through their various endeavors.

Andile has been seen severally in the Bentley Bentayga, which some sources claim belongs to him. Bentley is really expensive, as you already know.

His other cars include:

  • Mercedes G Wagon (R3 million)
  • Lamborghini Urus
  • BMW X5 M (R2 million)
  • Nissan GTR (R 1 million)
  • Volkswagen Golf 7R

Sbahle doesn’t have so many cars as her brother. One of her well-known cars was the BMW 440i Cabriolet, which was reportedly registered in her then-boyfriend name – South African footballer Itu Khune. However, she was involved in a ghastly accident with the car in August 2018.
