KRG The Don flaunts millions online, KRA reacts
Rapper KRG The Don has been the talk of the town after he recently flaunted bundles of Kenya shilling notes on his social media.
The video quickly gained traction, making the singer a trending topic.
Incidentally, Kenyan Revenue Authority (KRA) playfully responded to the rapper’s display of wealth with a Bible verse from Mark 12:17: “And Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.’ And they marveled at Him.”
KRA added his popular line of ‘Mambo imechemka’ to their post.
In the video, KRG confidently states the cash was his ‘pocket money’, leaving many puzzled.

The musician has never been shy about showcasing his luxurious lifestyle to the public, often sharing glimpses of his wealth on social media.
However, this recent display garnered mixed reactions from his fans, with some expressing envy while others accused him of involvement in money laundering.
Aside from showcasing his wealth, KRG The Don also made an announcement in the same video about changes in his rate cards for endorsement deals.
He boldly declared that he would not sign any deal with a betting company unless the offer was at least Sh100 million.
He playfully stated, “Without 100M I can’t sign any deal with any Betting company. Nimeshaa wa Warn na Mapema kabisa Mimi ni #Bughaaa #UnashidaGani?”
In an interview with Nairobi News, KRG The Don defended his show of wealth, stating that it is a common practice among artists to display their affluence as part of their branding.
He believes that by showcasing his financial success, he is also sending a message to the international community that Kenyan artists are successful and well-off.
“All artistes do that. It is part of our branding and by showing off money is just a way of also telling other countries that Kenyan artistes have money,” he said.
The rapper emphasized that he pays all his taxes, and he is not worried about any repercussions from KRA.
For him, paying taxes is a responsibility that he takes seriously, and he feels confident in his compliance with the law.
“We have people who came to town to look for money and those who came to work, mark the difference. The good thing is, I pay taxes and so I am not worried about anyone tagging KRA people, they know I pay taxes.”
