On the other hand, it is unclear what "Juju" is known for or how he has accumulated his so-called wealth.
His online followers interacted with posts, as they answered his burning question. Many indicated that Musk had no reason to show off his money on social media as his dealings and investments spoke for themselves.

In a separate story, Briefly News reported that Elon Musk’s head isn’t in the clouds. No, his dreams reach far beyond that to the stars that shine above us, to the uninhabitable planets in our solar system. The 50-year-old surpassed Jeff Bezos as the richest man on the planet, but his aspirations were never financially motivated and the lack of luxury seen in his lifestyle proves it.

As of 24 April, Elon Musk is worth a staggering $269.7 billion according to Forbes’ real-time billionaire's rankings. This amounts to more than R4 trillion, which is enough money to sustain the whole of South Africa for two years while still being considered rich.
Yet, despite having all the money in the world, almost quite literally, Elon Musk doesn’t live a flashy, luxury life. In fact, the man who tops the world’s richest people list doesn’t even own property. Briefly News took a look at Musk’s life, career, and how he spends his riches.
