A man became the talk of the town when he shared a video of the luxury cars he recently purchased.
In the footage, the businessman from Joburg flaunts his rides which he bought for himself, wife, kids and parents.
Thabiso Hamilton Ndlovu showed off his vehicles on social media. He said the one Lamborghini Urus, two Porsches and two Jeeps were for himself, "the kids”, his parents and wife. Ndlovu is the founder of Hamilton Holdings, an engineering company.
However, the reactions to the footage were of caution rather than excitement. Many social media users were wary for him and warned him to not succumb to the same fate as 'Sam Holdings'.
Sam Chabalala of Sam Holdings was charged by SARS after he showed off his massive collection of cars at the Durban July. He, too trended on social media when he showed off the whips but SARS was watching closely.
Twitter user NyolsG said:
"If you got the cash why not? But I would rather buy them cheaper cars and use that money to invest in new businesses or set up long-term investments coz it's very easy to write off an above 500hp car."
"Go ask Sam Holdings, the guy who went to Durban July with 70 cars - let me keep quiet bazothi nginomona."
"SARS is watching, as they do..."
"LoL the comments!! Yoh people need to make their own money and invest their own money, stop telling people who work hard for their money to invest."
"If and when I have this kind of money you will never see me on socials, shem. That car dealer has made his target for the year."
