2020 was not a year filled with many positive notes, so some celebrities tried to make the best of a bad situation and treat themselves to some brand-new cars. Mzansi celebs love a new set of wheels and some added to their collections this year.
The rich and famous of South African society love spending their hard-earned money and a preferred splurge has always seemed to be cars.
Through a year filled with struggles, lows and bad news, it seemed that getting excited about a new purchase was a victory that quite a few celebs decided to act on.
Briefly.co.za took a look at 5 Mzansi celebs who decided to treat themselves to new whips in 2020.
Focalistic posted snaps of his brand-new, stunningly luxurious silver-grey Mercedes Benz V Class V220d AMG Line mini bus. The car is valued at just over R1 million.
4 Lamiez Holworthy
Lamiez Holworthy had one of the strongest examples of "speaking it into existence" that 2020 has seen. The DJ went onto social media to post a series of pictures of her sponsored 7-seater minibus. The vehicle was wrapped but the picture of Lamiez pasted to the side can be seen in some photos.
3 Nandi Madida
Nandi Madida had an incredible 2020, which included bagging two SAMA nominations, starring in Beyonce's Black Is King and securing a brand partnership with Mercedes Benz. Nandi, who is also Zakes Bantwini's wife, took to Instagram to announce the news about the new wheels and post a picture of herself with the car.
2 Amanda du-Pont
Amanda treated herself to a white Range Rover Sport in 2020. A Range Rover comes with an average price tag of R1.5 million, so the star is rightfully proud of being able to afford a whip of such status. The star posted about her new purchase at the time and wore tights, sneakers and a Dior sweater to the high-end Sandton car dealership.
Media personality and YouTuber Lasizwe purchased and then showed off his lush new white convertible BMW. The car symbolised much more than a fancy whip, as it showed how success could be achieved through hard work and that it would all be worth it in the end.
