For people who are not fans of Italian sport cars or any sport cars for that matter, they would not be sure whether to congratulate Master KG on his Ferrari or not. They would not mind videos or pictures of his house, assuming he has bought or built one following the success of Jerusalema.
As for his new wheels, they would hope the roads in his village are well paved and that potholes are not an issue.
Come to think of it, if Mmakau can boast 3 billionaires from the royal Motsepe household as well as two sons in law, one a billionaire and another a wealthy minister, yet lots of the tribesmen still lived in ramshackle, lacked water and had to navigate through wet clay in rainy days for years, then surely the singer can't restrain his consumerist instincts either.
However, people's consumerist instincts differ. If most were in his situation, they would buy an expensive Range Rover, which is also a status symbol of sorts. But again, a lot want to see the house. He can buy five Ferraris but if he hasn't invested in some serious properties, then he needs advice. Let's not justify bling for our artists if priorities are upside down.
It usually doesn't end well especially when the government makes an artist an ambassador but when the hits and money are gone, he would blame government for exploiting him and not looking after him. This script keeps repeating itself. People are familiar with this script. It is like a scratched record.
Nonetheless, It's his money. He worked for it. He struggled alone like all artists do to get to where he is. He should spend his money the way he sees fit without being made to feel guilty about situations he did not create. People should be happy for him.
