Many people in their 20s won't be able to afford to buy themselves a gift worth N23k, but South African entrepreneur, Sibusiso Ngwenya, can add several zeroes to the price tag of his birthday present.
Ngwenya, who is more commonly known as Skinny Sbu, decided to spoil himself in celebration of his 29th birthday.
On Monday, the young entrepreneur revealed he spent R1.2 million (N28.3m) on a birthday gift. However, instead of buying a lavish crib or luxury car, Ngwenya invested back into his company.
The 29-year-old bought himself a massive sock knitting machine, which has now been delivered to his premises.
He captioned the post: "I got myself this sock knitting machine worth R1.2 million for my 29th Birthday. Thank God for such a beautiful gift. #Sbutember."
Ngwenya, who previously gifted President Cyril Ramaphosa with a pair of socks, shared a video on Twitter showing him unwrapping his gift.
South Africans were inspired by his decision to invest in his own company and they praised Ngwenya for making some serious boss moves.
