Wealthy siblings who own a CITY in South Africa claim that they "never do anything to show off".


A wealthy real estate developer who documents his glamorous life on social media insists that he "never does anything to show off" – despite sharing some exotic trips aboard private jets, champagne-filled evenings, and designer clothes.

"It is becoming normal," he said. & # 39; We do nothing to show off; It always seems like we're showing off, but that's how everyone sees it.

“We never fitted in, we always excelled, and people often mistake this for being overjoyed. We always preferred the best things. & # 39;

Zaf told how he and Adam started their car dealerships in South Africa before they started real estate.

"We have spent the next few years developing and investing in real estate," he said. "We now live up and down in London, Dubai and South Africa to drive our businesses forward."

"I recently bought a pair of Christian Louboutin Python Skin sneakers covered with Swarovski crystals for £ 6,400," he said.

& # 39; I am very brand conscious. I am often referred to as materialistic, but that is not the case. I only wear what I feel comfortable in. My favorite brand would definitely be Dolce & Gabanna.

"I have invested a lot in my wardrobe over the years – not only am I very interested in it, but the look is also very important."

Then there is his watch collection; In addition to the collection of vintage Rolex watches that were passed on to him, he also owns a Rolex Yacht-Master II in yellow gold worth around £ 49,000 and a Patek Philippe worth £ 61,128, which he recently called an "investment" bought.

"I want to expand this collection," he said. "Adam has an impressive collection of his own, and I sometimes help myself when I feel like confusing things a bit."

An average evening for the brothers is usually "thousands of dollars," according to Zaf, with Adam pushing back 245 pounds of whiskey.

"If you live by the motto" go big or go home, "you don't set a price for something you enjoy doing," argued Zaf.

“When we celebrate, we really celebrate! Thousands of dollars of champagne are sprayed around, and that happens on many days of the week. Like I said, we live up and down in Dubai and London and when you do your thing in these two cities there are never boring moments.

"Life is a party, but there is one thing to be aware of: work hard, play hard."

"It was a loss that either we or she had to accept, and we were happy to take it on."
