Award-winning musician Zakes Bantwini was recently interviewed by former radio host MacG on his podcast.
The singer spoke about what is more valuable between buying a house and car.
The 40-year-old said many people would rather buy a BMW than a house because of the many hours spent in a car than at home.
“Why I’d buy a BMW before a house is because I spend ten hours in a BMW and I only spend three hours in my house,” he said during the podcast.
He added no one sees him when he is at home.
“You can’t carry the house around,” he said.
Bantwini says that even if one has a big house in an expensive estate, but drives a “Tazz”, people will not honour him and he won’t get the service he wants.
But it appears the musician’s words were taken out of context, with many believing he was encouraging people to buy a car over a house.

The ‘Yekokwam’ hitmaker made headlines last year after he and his wife, Nandi Madida, changed their nuptial agreement to Out Of Community Of Property to ensure that Nandi will not get Bantwini’s estate in case the two divorce.
Bantwini currently has several posh houses around the country.
In an article published by Sunday World in 2020, the award-winning musician filed a court order, requesting for his wife to be removed from their R5-million joint estates. The publication states that the couple owns properties, including a R3.5-million mansion in Durban, and a R1.5-million house in Joburg.
