Buying a home is a big deal for most, at any age, but buying a house that costs millions, before the age of 30, is a huge achievement

Several young local stars have purchased mansions costing as much as R10 million, leaving their fans in awe.

Ayanda Thabethe recently shocked her fans by announcing that she had paid off her new house in under two years.

Most people take 20 years or more!

“By the grace of God, I’ve paid off my house. My first property. Biggest achievement. I always say, secure yourself first,” she wrote on Twitter.

South African’s media darling reportedly made her first million at 22. So it comes as no surprise that she would be a homeowner before her 30s.

She gave her fans a glimpse of her luxury condo during an episode of Top Billing in 2012. “My little slice of heaven,” she described the home.

Several years after paying off the condo, Queen B invested in a new property. She again invited Top Billing to take a peep at her gorgeous mansion.

Boity was trending topic on Twitter in 2016 when she showed off her new mansion on social media. She bought the R4-million house as a gift to herself for her 26th birthday!

While some reports questioned whether she really owned the house, the TV presenter turned rapper ignored her haters.

“Ownership comes with a massive sense of responsibility and an understanding of what is important,” she told BONA magazine.
