Royal AM chairman Andile Mpisane is once again at it with the latest addition to his growing fleet of luxury whips.
The 20-year-old son of businesswoman and socialite Shauwn 'MaMkhize' Mkhize, along with whom he owns Royal AM, has been anything but shy to flaunt his excessive wealth.
Making good on keeping up his flamboyant appearances, Mpisane has recruited the sort of luxury vehicle that can only be described as the stuff of dreams – a R3 million 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic – for which he has undoubtedly reserved a special place in his exotic garage.
The Citizen reported that the musician, who's likely working on expanding his catalogue, took to Instagram to mesmerise his followers with the flashy new set of wheels.

The caption read:
“Never sacrifice three things in life, family, love and yourself.”
In the video, which has garnered more than 66 000 views, the musician is seen stepping out of the garage of the opulent house he occupies with his mother, before making his way towards the lux car and placing his first-born child in the backseat.
The video then shows off the spaceship-like ghost-white interior, which stands out in contrast to the SUV's matte black exterior. The vehicle packs a long list of breath-taking features and specs and comes with an option to purchase a four or five-seater.
GLS-Class luxury meets performance
The GLS 600 is neatly kitted out with a rear-seat entertainment system, e-active body control with Mercedes-Maybach GLS specific drive program and a specific acoustic comfort package, according to the manufacturer.
The entertainment system has about three screens; two of them are full HD displays with touchscreen control available. There is also a high-end 3D surround sound system with 28 speakers.
Powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 550 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque, the Maybach GLS is no slowpoke as it can reach a top speed of 250km per hour.
Along with his newest ride, the winger also boasts a Mercedes G-Wagon, which he received as a gift on his 16th birthday in 2017, KickOff reported. Mpisane followed that up with a BMW X5 and a Bentley Bentayga.
According to Car Buzz, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is the second offering from Mercedes-Benz' ultra-luxury brand Maybach. It uses the most recent GLS-Class as its basis, but with more power and luxury to go off.
As if there'd be any doubt on the socials, Saffas were mostly impressed, taking the time to doff their hats off to Mpisane over his latest purchase. Others, however, were a little bit less impressed and instead honed in on the young man and his mother's riches by pulling the proverbial corruption card.

Mpisane buys bae Sithelo Shozi a flashy new whip
The luxury gift certainly had many wishing they could have their very own Andile. The South African reported that Mpisane, who is no stranger to the finer things in life, shared a photo of himself standing in front of a Rolls Royce Cullinan, valued at about R10 million.
So if he is going to drive such expensive cars, then it's only fair that he ensures his baby momma looks suited parked next to him. Sithelo took to Instagram to share her brand new vehicle, gifted to her by none other than Mpisane.
