Local musician King Monada has blessed his family with a new house worth R1.5-million.
The Malwedhe hitmaker, who is well-known for putting Limpopo’s modern music on the map and flaunting his fancy cars on social media, built the six-bedroomed house opposite his house in Mokgolobotho, a small village without water and electricity outside Tzaneen, Limpopo.
But the artist, real name Khutso Kgatla, said he was not worried about the water and electricity struggle in the village as he was confident he would be able to supply his family with such needs.
The structure was expected to be completed this month but the father of five said it would now be completed after the lockdown. “People might judge me for building such a huge house in a village that is still developing, but this is my children’s home.
“This is where we all feel at home as a family,” he said.
He said the nationwide lockdown was proof the entertainment industry was not stable and he needed to invest in something worthwhile.
“I decided to build this house because an artist’s lifespan is never guaranteed, so I needed to make sure that if anything happens to me or my career, my two wives and children would not suffer. Having all the fancy cars is great, it is beautiful. But that’s just it. You cannot invest in a car, but a house is surely an investment, this house is big enough and does not need any extensions even in future,” he said.
