Renowned American rapper and fashion designer Kanye West is a man of means and his latest purchase gets to show his financial might.
The Jesus Walks rapper, whose nett worth is R26 billion, according to Forbes, has splurged R842 million on a new home in Malibu. According to TMZ, the house on the beach is rare, having been designed by a top Japanese architect.
The house in Malibu, California, was put on sale in 2020 for R842 million, but the Yeezy founder seems to have gotten a pretty great deal. The unique house, described as a piece of art, resembles a military bunker built with lots of concrete and reinforced steel.
The four-bedroom house overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is 30 minutes away from the Hidden Hills house he built with Kim Kardashian. His estranged wife and their kids still live on that property.
