With Sh24 million you too could drive away with this car that has left quite an impression. Meet the new owner of the hybrid BMW i8 1.5CC Kevin Mulei. An astute businessman and born-again humble youth mentor behind Mo Sound and Groove awards, the self-made multi-millionaire is the talk of town thanks to his new ride. At one point, he was deep in debt worth $25,000 after his investments sunk.
Frustrated, he packed his bags and left for the US to hustle. Years later he is reaping the fruits of his hard work. So God blessed Kevin in the land of the living... He is one of the most respected young entrepreneurs across Africa, he dines with kings and his net worth is... (we don't say). Kevin would even die not to be listed here. Yes, he is that humble!
You know you're doing something right or very wrong when socialites fight to ride in your car. That aside, flamboyant lawyer Donald Kipkorir got the flak for flossing his new Range Rover Sport HSE 2016 model.

KRG The Don
Rising from a hustler to a baller, KRG's story is one of inspiration, risk and hardwork. In his mid-20's and rumoured to be in the big billion club, he has investments in property, construction, transport and the list goes on.

You will either catch him in the Land Cruiser VX V8 2014 model, which retails anywhere from Sh8 million or his 2008 Chrysler 300C. The calm and collected artiste places his vehicles at Sh40 million.
