The mention from Black Coffee was among some of the biggest from the stream of comments that flooded into the Ska Bhora Moreki hitmaker's feed after he posted a picture of the property on social media.

It's undoubtedly one of his biggest flexes yet or any other seen on social media in recent times, as artist Khutso Steven Kgatle, commonly known by his stage name King Monada, enjoys his newly-built abode.

The muso took to Twitter to post a snap of the mega property, and instead of expectantly turning green with envy, Mzansi social media users doffed their hats off to the entertainer for striking gold.

King Monada has long paraded the gem while it was under construction. Taking to his @KingMonada Twitter account, he wrote:

"Be strong enough to walk away from what's hurting you and patient enough to wait for the blessings you deserve. That's my house."
