Over the years, he has headlined several shows worldwide and shared the stage with some of the biggest acts in the music industry.

Zakes Bantwini recently celebrated 20 years in the industry, and the sold-out event was a blast. Several artists performed at the event before he wowed fans with his unmatched flair as he performed some of his smash hits.

However, the muso was trending before the event after Mzansi spotted his alleged Mercedes-Benz Maybach GLS600 in the mix. Undoubtedly, he has a soft spot for Mercedes-Benz and a fleet to show for it.

The car is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after Mercs and boasts several outstanding specs. It has a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine worth 410 KW and 730 Nm.


It has Mercedes-Benz’s 9G-Tronic transmission and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. Petrolheads were quick to give his car a nod. However, fans were quick to implicate Zakes Bantwini’s alleged car price tag in the mix.

Over the years Mercedes-Benz has gifted Friends of the Brands some of the sleekest Mercs the world can offer.

However this is not the first time Zakes Bantwini has hogged headlines with his taste for cars. In September 2023, he topped trends after he was spotted with a Mercedes-Benz AMG SL 43 at the DStv Delicious Festival.
