One of the perks that come with fame and stardom is the big bucks, well at least for some celebs.
Some of our celebrities are rolling in money and they sure know how to go big when it comes to living the high life.

Uganda’s top musician/producer Jose Chameleone sure knows how to roll like the big boys.
The king of Leone Island Empire loves the finer things in life like giant mansions and luxury cars.
Some of the deluxe drives in his garage include a Range rover sports and a Rolls Royce- it appears that Chameleone has an appetite for American and European luxury machines.

The monster machine that was nicknamed ‘The Leone’ is fully customized with a home theatre with six LCD screens- four on the back seats’ headrests, the inner side of the car’s roof, and the fourth one on the dashboard.
He also bought a Bentley GTC convertible worth about Sh. 25 million in 2018 which he showed to his fans in an Instagram video.

After his nemesis, Bobi Wine was gifted with a bulletproof drive, Bebe Cool came out to say that Bobi’s car was a second hand. He also revealed that his 2021 BMW X7 was worth three Bobi Wine’s SUV.
Zarina Hassan famously known as the Boss Lady is one of the richest women in Uganda.
Zari relocated to South Africa to manage her property after her ex-husband Ivan Ssemwanga passed on.
In 2018, after gifting herself with a Range Rover Evoque, she said:
"Good morning to all. From last year I knew I wanted to buy this car. Been working so hard waking up at 4am at times, even taking gigs I shouldn’t have but I knew every cent will count. I don’t have a sponsor nor am I dating. I earned it, I paid it!!!! When am ready I’ll open up to the next person but right now it’s just me and my babies.”
Besides the Range, the Boss lady also owns a Black Mercedes Benz E250, An Audi Q, and a Bentley in South Africa and when she is in Uganda she has the option of choosing from her collection of Mercedes Benz Convertible, a Chrysler, or a Hummer.
The big question today is, if you decide to work hard this year and wake up at 4 am everyday like Zari, which car can you buy from all your combined savings?
