Businessman Kevin Obia shows off his Maserati Ghibli III

Businessman Kevin Obia alias Kevin Kleigh has shown off his luxury machines in his garage.

The high-end cars which consist of a Maserati which does not bear a licence plate number are seen parked in his compound.

He shared the videos with the caption, “Whips don lie.”

The luxury ride is a Maserati Ghibli III, a 2019 model. It goes for about Ksh 9.3m.

Obia who is also known as The Don, in one of his reels posted a video of himself getting out of his car and captioned, “People ask me what I do for a living, I sell drugs.”

Last year, Obia had been sentenced to one year in jail for defrauding Christian Gallati, an Australian national, off Sh13.7 million in a fake gold scam.

Obia who is known for his opulence lifestyle was charged with obtaining Sh13.7 million from Gallati at Hilton Hotel, Nairobi on May 1st, 2015 by falsely pretending he was in a position to sell him 7kgs of gold.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi handed the accused a one-year prison sentence or paying a fine of Sh300,000.

Additionally, Obia was also facing a second count of attempting to defraud Mr Gallati $570,000 (Sh54.1million) on May 18, 2015, claiming he was in a position to sell him 13kg of gold.

However, Obia who gave a sworn defence, told the court that he was being framed by the police and that he knew nothing about the fake gold trade.

He said that the officers who arrested him took him to the Central Police Station where they charged him with the current offences.

Despite his fake gold scandals, Obia who doubles up as the CEO of A1 entertainment, always throws exquisite birthday parties for himself, events that are graced by the who and who.

“Welcome to KO birthday BBQ…KO’s residence…Invite only…Ball till you fall,” the invite card in one of his parties said.

This year’s was in no way different with popularly known musicians, DJs and media personalities gathering for his birthday.
