Following his July convoy to Durban, Mshengu received heavy criticism from the public. This forced him to respond to all the claims that people had, concerning his source of wealth.
Mshengu began by reminding everyone about his difficult upbringing. This was mainly due to the death of his father. Their family struggled to make ends meet, and they would sometimes go hungry. This forced him to quit school and start fending for himself at the age of 11. His first workplace was Limpopo orange farm, where he was a general worker charged with the responsibility of picking up oranges. He was hardworking enough to get his bosses attention. His boss later transferred him to the tracking department of the business where he learnt everything he could about the trucking business.
His boss learnt of his enthusiasm and gave him the opportunity to drive a truck. Here, he transported maize and other products to Zambia and other countries. Later, his boss gave him a promotion to the position of a controller: the one in charge of all the truck drivers.
The knowledge that he had obtained while working for his boss made him think of starting his own business. He then registered his company, Sam Holdings Trading back in 2014, and used the trucks of his boss to complete projects that came his way. Mshengu then landed a contract even when he had no truck of his own. This allowed him to earn R300,000 per month with salary and commissions. He saved until he had R3 million, which he used to buy 3 trucks and their trailers. He has since grown this number to 52 trucks.
He works from 3 am and closes his day at 11pm. It surely is hard work, but it allows him to live the life of a king. According to him, he is not about to stop any time soon because he has his eyes fixed on the prize. He would want to own a Rolls-Royce soon

Investigations into the young Mshengu's citizenship status were started by the Department of Home Affairs, with reports indicating that he might be from Zimbabwe and that he got his South African citizenship fraudulently.
Even though the exact number of houses Sam owns is not apparent, they must all be beautiful - judging from his lifestyle. He is not a simple man when it comes to living his best life, and he is not shy to show his life. In an Instagram post, he showed a picture of his mansion with a swimming pool and a beautiful landscape.
